Die Sehnsucht der Pinguine

The Arctic has definitely lived up to its reputation for the last weeks with temperatures below -20 degrees, aurora borealis and flurries as I wait for the morning bus (too cold for biking with the trailer right now). The other day I decided to go truly local and buy a pair of downy alpine trousers, a decision I should have made a long time ago as they really help keeping me warm.

As for big decisions, I started off 2016 by permanently deactivating both my Facebook and Instagram accounts. After being constantly online on social media for almost a decade, it felt like the right thing to do in order to be more present with the kids and life in general. But do not worry, I will keep up Rawls & Me and, like certain penguins from Mistelbach, I will most certainly keep travelling into the new year. First out is Atlanta for the annual convention of the International Studies Association in mid-March.
