British professor of transport planning, living in Sweden, main motto: try not to take yourself too seriously. I enjoy chatting with and reading to our twins Ayla and Volkan (born Oct 2010), cycling, drinking real ale, relaxing in our fantastic Swedish house and garden, growing vegetables, listening to BBC Radio 4 and Radio 5 Todo Noticias, learning foreign languages, ski touring, climbing and croquet. Oops this needs an update. Now living back in Edinburgh Scotland, same job, same kids just a bit older and more Scottish, missing our Scandinavian house and the Swedish summer and Swedish cycle paths, same hobbies, happy otherwise to be back in Britain. Not normally upside down, just technologically challenged when trying to take pics with an Aye-pad (as they are known in Scotland).
