Between the 29th April and 29th May, I’ll be blogging from a number of European countries currently affected by the austerity measures, particularly the PIIGS. A bit of background to how the idea for this tour came about can be found here.
Current dates are
Athens 29th April – 2nd May
Dublin 4th May – 9th May
Paris – 11th May – 14th May
Barcelona 19th -22nd May
(yes, yes, I know its not strictly Spain, but Madrid was too expensive)
Rome 26th -29th May
Lisbon tba (hopefully)
If anyone has contacts in respective countries, that could put me in touch with activists, I would be really grateful and can be emailed atmhairimcalpine35ATgmail.com. Any good hints and tips about these countries (like the best way to et from the airport to civilisation) would be equally welcome, as would any offers of places to stay, suggestions of places to visit or any preparatory reading.
If you have read about this blog, you will know that I left my job and am in the fortuitous position of having both time and a little bit of cash to do this. I do however have no income, so if you would like to contribute, you are more than welcome. I’ve put a handy little button just below. Suggested donation is £5. Dont feel obliged – either to contribute or to limit yourself to a fiver. But it would be awful nice of you (…err, to contribute that is, not to limit yourself)
