  The Chatter Box : Welcome and Introductions
Hello all by jordanuk223 on 19 May 2012 10:52pm
Hello all,

I'm Jordan, and my Great Palin Adventure started in December 2006 with a short trip to Kraków in Poland. Not long after I discovered Palins marvellous New Europe series, which inspired the beginning of a great adventure in the states of Eastern Europe, with a firm belief that the little known and fascinating countries of New Europe were a treasure trove of beauty and fascinating history with (for me) much more appeal than the comparatively well known tourist countries of Western Europe.

My adventures since 2006 have taken in Poland (8 times, including a 6 month study exchange!) as well as Czech Republic, Ukraine, Slovenia, Montenegro, Croatia, Hungary and Albania. It is my goal to have seen all the countries of Europe before I am 30, so I still have 18 or so to go (12 of which are in New Europe), and then to move on to Asia.

I should say that I am 25 years old, and study International Relations, so this region holds particular interest for me! I look forward to some lively discussions!
