Some of you may know and remember theARXXIDUC in its previous incarnation as an e-Bulletin. Its name had been chosen in reference to and in memory of the great Austro-Bohemian Archduke Ludwig Salvator (1847-1915). You might want to check out his amazing book ‘Die Balearen’ in 3 tomes, available in Spanish, English and German (see below).
Now, theARXXIDUC has undergone a rebirth as a weblog.
I will try to be truthful to its original and, I believe, successful editorial make-up and concept. But it appears that the initial editorial restriction to the geographical boundaries of Mallorca and the Balearic Islands may have been somewhat limiting and, well, outdated. It is now my endeavour to bring you news and snippets from a wider range of topics covering the whole of the Iberian peninsula and perhaps the wider Mediterranean region with even occasional excursions into Europe and, perhaps, beyond.
Why not? The world is our oyster.
Our journey can be a long and exciting adventure. Let us do this extraordinary ‘camino’ together.
Welcome to theARXXIDUC.
