On my way to the HESS conference in Grahamstown

I thought I’d share some photos I took while I’m on my way to Grahamstown for the Higher Education as a Social Space conference.  I went about half of the distance on some of the smaller roads, went over the Du Toits Kloof pass, through Worcester, Robertson and Montagu to get to the Tredouw pass, and joined the N2 from there.

I’ve been in Sedgefield for 2 days now, mostly going through the conference Abstracts (all 150 of them) to get an idea of which presentations I’d like to see, as well as working on my own presentation.  I think it’s going to be a great conference, which unfortunately means that I’ll probably spend most of the holidays trying to get my head around all the cool things everyone is doing.

Just in case you’re worried I’m working too hard, here’s a few pictures from the road trip, as well as from the beach down the road.
