What do you do in your spare time?
My favourite spare-time activity is tennis. I play for the local tennis team, but I also enjoy cycling, running, playing football and golf. Well you can't live in St. Andrews and not play golf. When I am too exhausted to play any sport I enjoy going out to the cinema or reading.
Do you travel a lot?
Like many people who work in solar physics, I get to travel around a great deal. When you live in Scotland you have to travel to see the Sun! In Europe, I have travelled to Paris, the French Alps, Catania and Florence. I have also been to the USA and visited Boulder and Los Angeles. By far my favourite place to visit is Ottawa. Ottawa is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen and the people are extremely friendly.
