My Illlustrated Travel Journal with Essays about Roman and Mediaeval History and some Geology

  Everything is packed

especially the waterproofs. The forecast looks very British. ;)

I'll be back June 10.

Constance, don't send the gnomes over to create havoc on my blog, or I'll get me a gladius or some other pointy tool.

Oh, yes it is raining over here. With more forecast :-(
Well, there goes my fun... *sends disappointed gnomes over to Scott's blog*

Lesson for the day: A katana makes a better watermelon carver than a gladius. That is if you want slices, not holes...
Have a great time, Gabriele. I think we had summer in April this year, but at least you missed the downpour last weekend!
Enjoy the ghosts, Gabriele.

We expect MANY pictures when you get back.
Have a happy time, Gabriele! d:)
Have a great time, Gabriele!

(Yeah, I know -- long time no write. But enjoy yourself just the same!)
Thank you, everyone. :))

Constance, and there I thought you'd be off creating a Roman gnome with gladius and helmet to greet me upon my return. ;)
Sorry Gabriele, I've been tormenting David and got behind. :)I'm working on a non-gnome painting of a Roman if that counts.
Tormenting David - did you send the gnomes over to his blog as well? :)

The Lost Fort is a travel journal and history blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK, Scandinavia, and other places. It includes essays on Roman and Mediaeval history, as well as some geology, illustrated with photos of old castles and churches, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes.

I'm a blogger from Germany with a MA in Literature and History which doesn't pay my bills, so I use it to research blogposts instead. I'm interested in everything Roman and Mediaeval, avid reader and sometimes writer, opera enthusiast, traveller with a liking for foreign languages and odd rocks, photographer, and tea aficionado. And an old-fashioned blogger who hasn't yet gotten an Instagram account. :-)
