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

  Merry Christmas

I wish all my friends and readers a Merry Christmas.

And a quiet one after all the stress those last weeks. It gets more insane every year; gingerbread in August, Christmas markets lasting six weeks, and people buying food like the Apocalypse is coming. The town has been crazy.

The new job is pretty different from what I did before. It's more fun - I get to work with books and research texts a lot - but it carves into the time I used to prepare the longer blog posts. I think I'll eventually get used to it and can go back to the average two major posts a month in the new year. I also hope to get something done during the holidays - I got two weeks off.

The Lost Fort is a travel journal and blog based on my travels in Germany, the UK, Scandinavia, Flanders, and the Baltic Coast. It includes essays on Roman and Mediaeval history, and some geology, which are illustrated with lots of 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. :-)
