Here are the things I do for fun.
I love good stories! Reading (and listening to audiobooks) is my favourite way to relax. In 2019, I read 27 books (46 in 2018), mostly science fictions and whodunits, but a few pop-science books sneaked their way on my reading list as well. My new year’s resolution for 2020 is to read at least two books a month.
My current favourite sci-fi is the Expeditionary Force series by Craig Alanson. The characters are funny, lovable, and driven. They have to deal with dangerous situations, angry aliens, and an annoying AI, with inspiring out-of-the-box thinking.
One book I would recommend for everyone to read is Superior by Angela Saini.
Being in nature
Cycling, canoeing, and hiking with friends are energising for me. I try to go outside as much as possible, even if its only a short stroll in the park. My favourite part of being a geologist is going on field trips!
Playing board games with friends and family is fun! I prefer Scrabble and strategic games like Carcassone or 7 Wonders. If you have a recommendation, I would love to hear about it!
