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

  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.

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. :-)
