This view is from the summit of Flagstaff (668m), part of the Dunedin shield volcano, centred on Otago harbour, that was active 10-20 million years ago. My husband and I walked up there on Sunday afternoon. I realised that I had acclimatised to being away from Cambridge when we were discussing where to go for a walk and I commented that the climb was only 170m from the car park. Then I thought 'only 170m?' (To put this in context, there is an alternative route that starts about 100m from our house. From this starting point the climb is 500m.)
After working for many years as a research physicist, I became a part-time project officer with the Women in Science, Engineering and Technology Initiative (WiSETI) at the University of Cambridge in the UK. I've also been a member of the steering group of the Cambridge AWiSE networking for women in SET. I am now based in New Zealand.
