Half a decade ago, the book “The dawn of Eurasia” inspired me a journey through Eurasia. I chose the Russian culture as my gate to this continent, but getting the semblance of a grasp on the Russian soul is the adventurous endeavour of a lifetime, and finding a way through the Eurasian continent is the endeavour of many lifetimes. It is nonetheless a journey I resolved to embark in.

Through my website Carnets Eurasiatiques (Eurasian diaries) I wish to share the inner journey it has been, it is and will be, the beauty of this continuum and rich mosaic of cultures, literature and civilisations that Eurasia is.
