Travel Madness

Sometimes this job pushes the limits… It is now exactly 6 in the morning, and I am already sitting in the Lounge at Munich airport, having breakfast and waiting for my flight to Lyon… And it is not like I have not seen the airport lately. After all, I just returned from Dresden (the closest airport to Bautzen, were I gave lectures at a school) last night. Even my public transport ticket from yesterday was still valid this morning because it is so early, how crazy is that?

Well, now I’m off to the CALICE collaboration meeting in France, where we’ll discuss the latest analysis results from our test beams as well as the development for new detector prototypes, for example possible solutions for a higher energy collider, CLIC, which could run at 6 times the energy of the ILC.

As I wrote in an early post (at least I seem to remember so, at this early hour 😉 ), travel around the world is one of the many interesting aspects of life in high energy physics. Right now though, it feels more like a curse…
