Notes from a Nordic realm · 7:40am Aug 10th, 2018

I am currently in Helsinki. Here because the International Conference for Physics Students, an event I attended regularly in times past, is having an alumni thing, so I get to relive the glorious days of my youth, mixing travel and physics. To makes things more interesting, I lugged my backpack through Stockholm, and then spent a day cycling in the Åland Islands (between Sweden and Finland), before boarding an overnight ferry.

Return to Finland (with Moomins) · 12:26pm Aug 29th, 2019

This post is a detour away from my usual ramblings, but there is a story here. Last week I was back in Finland – my third trip to the Nordic country in thirteen months.

Finland, Cruise Ships, and Bioluminescent Algae · 1:20pm Apr 19th, 2019

Just returned from a week in my current favourite country Finland, where I went to a ShowScience workshop in Turku. I was travelling with a large suitcase full of physics toys. Just the basics: cloud chamber, silicon detector, radioactive objects, Lego kits, LHC posters; as well as an electron, proton, positron, Z boson; up, down, top, bottom, strange and anti-charm quark plushies; and laptop loaded with virtual model of ATLAS detector. I was very restrained in my packing compared to some
