Original ImageFriday 25th of August I went to Palma de Mallorca to participate at the conference VIIP 2006 (Visualization, Imaging and Image Processing). The conference commenced on monday, but I wanted to arrive a bit earlier to relax at the beaches for a couple of days. I spent the weekend in Hostal Apuntadores, where I hung out with Matt from New Zealand and a few other travelling friends. On Sunday I changed to Hotel MeliĆ” Palas Atenea where the conference was arranged. There were a lot of interesting presentations from all over the world, and I made contact with many scientists. On Wednesday after the conference I went to the neighbour island Menorca, where I visited Miquel, a spanish friend of me who earlier has studied in Trondheim. Miquel showed me most of the island, f.ex. the towns MaĆ³, Ciutadella and Fornells, and we also visited many of the islands beautiful beaches. In the evenings we went out to eat either in a restaurant or in the house of one of Miquel's many friends on the island. I had a really great time, and I hope to be able to return soon.
