My wife and I have just spent one great week in Spain with friends, and another good week with family in England. For the first time since I started using e-mail in the 1980s, I’ve gone two whole weeks without it. Amazingly, the world did not come to an end, and I didn’t miss out on a million dollar contract. In fact, no-one seemed to notice.

My wife did take her iPad with her, though, and I will do a short post on the pros and cons of taking an iPad rather than a laptop on holiday.

Waiting for me when I got back was Hughes and Mighty’s book: ‘Taking Stock: Research on Teaching and Learning in Higher Education’. I will do a full review of this book shortly.

I am sorry though that I couldn’t keep the blog going while away. I will do my best to make up for this over the next few weeks. However, again to my surprise, the traffic to the web site was down no more than 10 per cent while I was away, so again the world hasn’t ended, despite my not posting.

In the meantime, here are some photos of the Alhambra, Granada, Spain, surely one of the wonders of the world.
