The Holiday Rush

Apologies for the lack of posting recently. Unfortunately the blogging silence may continue for a little longer. This break has been full of travels for me.

I went back to Ohio for a week to visit my family. Then a week back in Connecticut. Next I was off to national meeting of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology & American Microscopical Society in Seattle, Washington. I presented some of the preliminary results from my dissertation research in an oral presentation. Then a week back in Connecticut. Now I am off on a vacation-adventure to visit a friend in Malaysia who is working on her dissertation research there. I will be visiting both peninsular Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur and the island of Borneo, which includes parts of Malaysia and Indonesia.

I leave this upcoming Monday so my excitement and anxiety for this adventure are mounting! We will be visiting a couple of National Parks and the moss diversity should be spectacular. I won't be doing any collecting but I do hope to capture the beauty in as many photos as I can fit on my camera!

I will have some internet access but it is only a 2.5 week trip, so I am not sure how much blogging I will do on the road. I will most definitely share all the mossy wonder from the trip with you all when I return!  So stay tuned, I will be back in the country on Feb 4th with adventure tales to tell.
