So, I've decided to start a blog. I'll begin with something fairly benign and unthreatening - the weather in my corner of Europe.
It's been snowing in Trento, on and off, for the last few days. But by now the snow has become old, brown and slushy. Still, every now and then you'll come across a pristine white patch, untouched and ripe for the jumping.
Actually, the allure of snow begins to wear off pretty quickly. Once you've had a snowball fight or two and made a snowzilla, you're left with slushy brown snow at the side of the road and icy footpaths which disturb contemplation as you wander along them because of the constant threat of falling and dying.
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!
