Today is a special day: I arrived safely at the end of my very first year as a PhD-student! A year filled with tons of mountains and plants, filled with beautiful views and endless interesting datasets.
A year with plenty of steps forward: hundreds of questions, thousands of answers and an uncountable pile of new questions. A year in which I started to find my way around in the scientific world and prepared all steps for an exciting future.
I hiked up to the top this year, and now I can see for miles and miles in front of me, towards unexplored horizons. From now on, I plan to stay high, hike my way through the next four years with the amazing views all around me. It is a PhD on top of the world, and I gonna get the best out of it.
It is also the end of my first year of writing this blog. One fantastic year of being a photograping ecologist and sharing my stories and views with you. I hope I was able to lift you, my reader, up to the top of the world with me, and that you are happy to join me on the next part of this journey!
