My EFACIS tour of Germany was a real delight from beginning to end. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing more of the country across the various modes of public transport. It's always exciting entering a new city for the first time, especially as I was so warmly welcomed by each of my brilliant hosts: Professors Christoph Reinfandt, Joachim Frenk and Ralf Haekel. My first stop was Saarbrücken, then I was off to Tübingen and I finished in Leipzig. It was such a pleasure to read my work and share some of my ideas surrounding Irish mythology, modernism and depth psychology, which I've been exploring for the past few years. I was immediately struck by the engagement from all the students. To have so many shiny-eyed scholars assiduously poring over my work with stimulating exchanges and intelligent questions was extremely gratifying. Writing is a pretty solitary affair most of the time so to have this opportunity to connect with so many great people who share a deep interest in Irish literature and a strong knowledge in Celtic studies was a total thrill. I feel I have made a lot of real long-lasting friendships and connections which I'm extremely grateful for. Thank you all so much for having me and for making my visit so enjoyable.
