  Happy New Year

I wish everyone a happy New Year 2013.

Here's a bit of Russian golden splendour to enjoy.

Isaac's Cathedral, detail

It's a ceiling decoration of a side chapel from the Isaac's Cathedral in St.Petersburg. And not the only gilded bit in that one. But other than the kitschy souvenirs, it's real gold this time.
Happy New Year, Gabriele!
Happy New Year, Gabrielle! Hope 2013 will be even a better one than 2012!

The Lost Fort is a blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK and other places, with essays on Roman and Mediaeval history illustrated with lots of photos of old castles, cathedrals, Roman remains, and beautiful landscapes. You may also find the odd essay about geology or Mediaeval literature.

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. :-)
