About me

Location Slovakia
Introduction This blog is based on my personal travel experiences while living and working in Russia, Slovakia, Poland and the Czech Republic for ten years. I am now an academic in the field of East European studies, focusing on the politics and history of Slovakia and western Ukraine. I have a particular interest in the folk culture and wooden architecture of the Carpathian mountains. Eastern Slovakia and Ukraine's Zakarpattya region are my favourite places to explore - I'm familiar with those regions on a village by village level.
