I look back to a very busy autumn with lots of highlights, both privately and work-related. On one hand, I got married and moved appartment in October. We had a very nice wedding in the Masoala Rainforest Hall in the Zoo Zurich. It wasn't a huge wedding, but we enjoyed a lot having all our best friends and familiy with us. Then, in early November I gave my Introductory Lecture for receiving the Venia Legendi at the ETH Zurich. Of course this was followed by a nice apéro. Now I'm looking forward to the rest of the year, which will hopefully be a little bit less busy.

I'm back at the ETH after the annual Heart Camp, where I spent one week as a leader. The Heart Camp is a dedicated summer camp for kids with congenital heart deseases. We followed the adventures of Harry Potter, learned some magic tricks, and of course played Quidditch. It was again a really great week with lots of happy faces. I'm very glad to be a part of this exciting kids camp.

I'm back in the office after three busy weeks. First, I was teaching our BSc students in a geological field course in Maniva (Italy). Then I went to the International Conference on Permafrost (ICOP) in Potsdam (Germany) and presented our latest results on rockglacier deformation. Immediately after the conference, I went to the post-conference field trip through the German, Austrian, and Swiss Alps to learn more about alpine permafrost. It was great three weeks, but now I should finally catch up with my office work.
