Into the Abyss: An Anthropological Study

November in Paris

FRANCE | Monday, 29 Nov 2010 | Views [315] | Comments [2]

OK, so I thought I would update you on what's been happening here in France instead of stressing about my reams of homework. It's good, because it gives me the illusion of doing something constructive. That is, I'm communicating with all the lovely ... Read more >

Rainy Tuesday in Paris

FRANCE | Thursday, 11 Nov 2010 | Views [515] | Comments [2]

I am writing from the polished stone floor in a Sciences Po corridor. Today, the students of this great institution don't know what to do with themselves. All the libraries have been simultaneously closed for some reason, and it's very wet and ... Read more >

Sunday afternoon

FRANCE | Monday, 11 Oct 2010 | Views [372] | Comments [2]

Sunday afternoons in Paris for me are like little holidays. Friday and Saturday, although I have no classes, tend to be pretty busy, but Sundays are just lazy days here. Nothing is open apart from galleries and flea markets - it's like heaven. Today ... Read more >

September in Paris

FRANCE | Friday, 8 Oct 2010 | Views [431] | Comments [1]

While sitting today on the sunny but chilly balcony outside our living room, I started to reflect on the last month in Paris and how things have been going so far. Now that the initial excitement has worn off, a bit of homesickness has set in and ... Read more >

Paris in August

FRANCE | Wednesday, 8 Sep 2010 | Views [499] | Comments [4]

So it's been a while since I updated. Last time I left off I was leaving Prague for Berlin, then going to Luxembourg, Bruges and Amsterdam. I would be lying if I said that I hadn't had time to update. On the contrary, I've had plenty of spare ... Read more >

Vienna, Bratislava, Budapest, Prague

CZECH REPUBLIC | Friday, 30 Jul 2010 | Views [360] | Comments [4]

Well now. It has been a while since I wrote, mainly because I've been busy Getting the Most Out of Each Day. It's feel as though I'm short-changing myself if I don't experience a city's Culture during the day and its night-life until ... Read more >

Ireland, Munich

SLOVAKIA | Friday, 16 Jul 2010 | Views [493] | Comments [3]

I have reached the point where I can't stand traipsing through yet another palace, learning about yet another building's founding date, or visiting yet another Greek and Roman antiquities wing. This is not to say that I'm sick of travelling, on the ... Read more >

Sofia, Britain, Morocco

AUSTRALIA | Saturday, 10 Jul 2010 | Views [524]

Briefly, because we both have better things to do. Sofia was fun. Depressing because of the architecture and the poverty. Flying in over the top of it is so different to flying in over Vienna. The inner buildings are all grey concrete, bleak and utilitarian, ... Read more >

One Day in Vienna

AUSTRIA | Sunday, 4 Jul 2010 | Views [531] | Comments [2]

I've been a bit lax with keeping people informed of what I've been doing, and I'm sure that some of you are wondering whether or not I'm still alive. In fact, I have a very good reason for not having updated this blog (I couldn't be bothered) but I ... Read more >
