Elsje and I live in an apartment just around the corner from Castello del Buonconsiglio (the Castle of Good Advice). Apparently (according to our tour of Trento) the castle was built on a hill that was originally named "Malconsiglio" (bad advice) - because it was the place they used to hang criminals (who had obviously followed some bad advice or they wouldn't have been hung). When the Bishop-Prince of Trento built his castle there he changed the name.
As well as blogging here, I'm also one of the editors on bloggingportal.eu - a new way to read blogs about EU affairs. We aggregate the content from more than 300 blogs about the EU! If you're at all interested in Europe, then check it out!
I'm living in Italy and taking European & International Studies at the University of Trento. My current mission in life is to learn as much as I can about Europe, her past, peoples, foods, cultures, crimes, triumphs and her place in the world. I want to know the whole shmeer! Warts and all!
