September in Germany via Instagram

Of course, I want to travel. A lot. But I want to travel a whole lot more than I actually can: I like my job as a medievalist, but honestly, it’s quite time-consuming and it’s definitely not a job that is making me rich.

A New Beginning

A while ago, I read an article on some kind of semi-dubious internet site introducing a study on the latest posts of all WordPress blogs out there (at least, that’s what I remember the article being about).
