Retrospectacle: A Neuroscience Blog

Category archives for Travel

I got back into Detroit last night after a long flight from Charles de Gaulle, after spending a week and a half traveling from Amsterdam to Antwerp to Paris. Hopefully you all enjoyed the chemistry-related blogging of Wired blogger Aaron Rowe in my absence, looks like he’s kept things busy here (thanks Aaron!). There were…

So, looks like I’ll be giving a talk in Antwerp, Belgium during a conference on hearing research October 19-20th. I’ll be flying into Amsterdam on the 15th, taking the train to Antwerp for the conference, and then spending the 21-24th in Paris, flying out of Charles DeGaulle. I’m so psyched! Please give me some ideas…

The Shanghai Museum houses 5 floors of ancient Chinese artifacts ranging from carved jade to Buddhas to painted scrolls, and was built in the early 90s. As a neat coincidence, there was also an exhibit of American Art rotating through the museum which featured famous works by artists including Warhol and O’Keeffe. Below are some…

After an uneventful and Ambien-laden flight to Shanghai, I arrived at Pudong Airport more than a bit physically tired and quite a bit psychologically wired. “Three weeks off–Hooray!” kept scrolling across my mind like a stock ticker. As Darren was already there, we headed over to a sketchy (and none too cheap) bar called ‘Red…

Well, just got back into the States last night and just wanted to say, I’m still alive and pictures/stories/tall-tales will be on the way. My traveling parter is getting back tomorrow and is the Keeper of the Camera. So, probably the next few days I’ll get back to blogging (oh sweet vacation!) with travel stuff…

The entire month of June I’ll be in Asia, still blogging though (when possible!). Me and a friend are spending 4 days in Shanghai, then a few days in Suzhou, then flying to Kota Kinabalu, Borneo (maybe Sipadan, who knows?) and ending in Koh Phanang/Phi Phi Island, Thailand. (Phi Phi pictured below.) My parents live…

STD Happy Hour

Ohhh this picture makes me crack up. I took it outside “The Sink,” a bar in Boulder, Colorado when I was there a bit ago for a science conference. Yes, it says “STD Happy Hour.” I forget what it was suppost to stand for, but it did have some other meaning.

A Few Pictures of Denver During ARO

As mentioned, I’m currently at the ARO MidWinter Meeting in Denver, and have taken a few pictures of this beautiful city. I also managed to meet up with Karmen of Chaotic Utopia (I found out why she named it that!) for dinner and hang out with her fascinating cornucopia of friends. (Thanks Karmen!) Through her…

So, I’ve been in the North Country for the weekend, and have mixed feelings about Toronto. On the one hand, its the metropolitan city that Detroit could only dream of being (I live in Ann Arbor, MI). Cool underground mall, pretty decent public transport, fun and safe nightlife. On the other, getting a cab or…

Well, sorry for the long hiatus in blogging, but it was nice to just have a little break and relax for the holidays. Hope everyone also had a restful and safe holidays (of whatever you celebrate–or not!). I just arrived back in the US yesterday, and after another 14 hour flight I gotta admit I’m…
