Hello! I'm Eve and I love things. Old things, far away things, colorful things, and musical things. I love design, history, films, everything involving food, and pretending letter writing is still a thing. Mostly I like to blog about places I travel to with lots of history thrown in, because history is hilarious.

I have an M.A. in History of Design from the Royal College of Art in London and I wrote my dissertation on harps! I looked at French single action pedal harps at the end of the eighteenth century, specifically their relation to the history of technology and the gendering of musical instruments. Sadly many of these harps are in museums and cannot be played, but there are restorers and harpists who still play them and you can see them in all their single action glory! Also, they are absolutely gorgeous, typically covered in gold, and will one day be collected by a (hopefully rich) future me!

So if you love to pack as much as travel, enjoy scouring farmer's markets and Asian grocery stores, devour dry history books, and salivate over beautiful museum things, you've come to the right place! Hope you enjoy my (very slow) journey around the world.
