This blog provides as a portal for me to explore a range of interests. My main problem seems to be that I have too many interests, and as such it may seem like the content of this blog can be at times somewhat random. However, a common strand running through them is a desire to understand the world a little bit better. There are dedicated pages to exploration of UNESCO World Heritage sites and ‘Geographical Heroes’ as well as snapshots of the different research projects I am working on.
So who am I?…. Dr. Jennifer Watts
I’m a geographer (primarily -I’m also a bit of an adventurer, historian, egyptologist, economist, and philosopher).
I ‘m also an educator. I’m a trained secondary school teacher and examiner – although now I work and teach in a university.
I like learning languages. I have a working knowledge of French plus a basic knowledge of German and Czech. I am currently learning Portuguese and Mandarin.
