    Our vacation has started!

    Collaboration: Thann Spa Our month long summer vacation started last weekend! Even though the only person I have to answer to with my PhD work is myself and my hours are as flexible as I want them to be, it’s completely different to be on an actual vacation, otherwise I’m constantly thinking what I need to do next for my PhD or I'm crossing off things from my To Do lists.

So I figured I'd get back on track by working outside the house for a while and so I moved to Valo hotel for a week so that I wouldn't have any distractions...

    How to really protect animals?

    I just arrived from Ruka last night and coming back I kept thinking about animal rights, so I thought I'd share some pictures from our trip while discussing the topic on my mind. First of all, I wouldn't go to a tiger petting zoo or participate in anything else where I think animals aren't treated well. I love animals...
