Our Going Away Party

Brisbane, Australia (Aug 2007)- Yesterday afternoon and evening was brilliant. The people, the atmosphere, the food... what a grand send-off. For everyone who turned up to our going away party yesterday, thank you so much for coming and celebrating the close of this chapter in our lives. It was great seeing and hanging out with all of you (even if only for a few minutes) and we really enjoyed your company. For those who weren't able to come, you were sorely missed, but we hope to see you sometime before we leave on Friday. A big thank you in general to every one of you for being a part of our lives. It's been an incredible journey and the people you meet along the way definitely make it more memorable. We will of course strive to keep in touch with each and every one of you throughout the next exciting chapter in our lives (although I feel Australia will be unparalleled!). Apropos correspondence, our new email addresses will be (Rach at UCSB): and (Andreas at UMichigan): We will also be contactable via Skype, LinkedIn, Myspace and/or Facebook. And to close, Andreas and I would like to invite you all to come visit us anytime in the US. Our house(s) are open to you... so take advantage!!! Wish us a bon voyage!
