My name is Katie Low. I spent the first ten years of my adult life studying and teaching Classics – ancient Greek and Roman history and literature – but then, after this initial career in academia in the UK, moved to Belgium do an EU internship. I currently work in Brussels.

I initially planned for this blog to focus on travel and transportation, and ways of communicating about them (one of my favourite things about living in Belgium is how closely connected it is to the rest of western Europe, and further afield). However, it now covers European politics and culture more broadly and – because it turns out that my experiences in Brussels have given me a new and enriched perspective on Classics – the possibility of linking ancient history and the modern world.
