I'm Alex Kearney, a PhD student studying Computer Science at the University of Alberta. I focus on Artificial Intelligence and Epistemology.


My last stop on the Danube: Passau, Germany. It's a tiny town which is notable for it's gothic and baroque architecture.


The sight I was most excited about: Melk Abbey. It's *very* baroque.


The most imperial city of my trip: Vienna.


An austrian monastery established in 1114.


A gothic cathedral in Vienna. It's got a really good clock.


The Viennese treasury. Filled with ridiculous things: The Holy Roman Empire's Crown, one of the largest emeralds in the world, etc.


Unexpectedly fun city of the trip: Budapest.


An odd foray into Serbia: It's a weird city with sad history.


A stop in Romania to say I stopped in Romania. Went to see an oddity: a church built in the 1970s.


My last stop in Bulgaria before getting on a boat and heading down the Danube.


Greetings from Passau.


Day one on my trip down the danube: Sofia, Bulgaria. I walked around some of the popular sights, seeing orthodox cathedrals, Serdician ruins, and an actual yellow-brick road.


Greetings from wine (Wachau).


Greetings from Budapest.


Stop one on my post-university adventures: Sofia.
