On the Road again…..

The living room is littered with stuff in a seemingly random pattern and the Christmas decoration is complete and utterly spoiled……

Returning from Abdingdon following an extra – thankfully quiet – nightshift, I have 24 hours to pack all the gear, clothes, books, IT equipment, skis and instruments I am likely to use during the next up to four months, as I will be on the road again!……

There is a bit of a feeling of deja vu as this was very similar nearly 27 years ago, when I was traveling from Germany with all my belongings in a VW Passat to start my first job in the UK – the rest is history…..

The car has changed in the mean time, but the felling of anticipation and anxiety is much the same – if all goes as planned, the road will first take my East , then North and then to the real North with a lot of new impressions (not all veterinary related…..) and old and new friend to meet and to make on the way.

Another journey begins indeed………

I am a veterinary surgeon with a German and Norwegian educational background. I have been the founder and for over 20 years I have been the senior veterinarian at the Virginia Water Veterinary Clinic in Surrey, England. When starting this blog I was also the President of FECAVA, the Federation of European Companion Animal Veterinary Associations. In the summer of 2019 I left my clinic to work as an international locum and clinical advisor. I am interested in all aspects of clinical companion animal medicine, in endurance sports and in traveling and meeting people with and without their pets and especially in sharing my knowledge with colleagues in other parts of Europe and the World.
