Lawrie's SSP97 Diary

During 1997, Lawrie was on sabbatical, visiting SERC in Melbourne; NTNU (pictured) in Trondheim, Norway; and UOW in Wollongong.

Collected here are a series of informal narratives describing his adventures from a personal perspective, especially whilst in Norway. Elsewhere there is information on his professional research from this sabbatical.

The following descriptions have been adapted from email circulated to family and friends whilst I was away (picture below shows me on Preikestolen, see May 12 entry). If you want the story in brief, have a look at my Christmas letter with the year in review. Otherwise the detailed diary entries are below:

Life in Norway

Look at the Map of Trondheim (144kb), or the Map of Norway (69kb), to find the various places mentioned.

You can also see my photo index for the various photos scanned in for these diary entries.
