A Sealand Travelogue!

While reading an article found through Younghusband’s last post on micronations, I came across a travelogue by someone in the UK who’d travelled to Sealand to repair fire damage. Not only did he go there, he filled out a visa application, had his passport stamped and everything. There are dozens of pictures and lots more information about the tiny disputed country. On top of that, he’s made 3 trips there!

About Chirol

Sir Ignatius Valentine Chirol (1852 - 1929) was a journalist, prolific author, world historian, and British diplomat. He began his career as a foreign correspondent and later became editor of the London Times. After two decades as a journalist he joined Her Majesty's Foreign Ministry as a diplomat and was subsequently knighted for his distinguished service as a foreign affairs advisor. Additionally, he wrote a dozen books on foreign affairs including The Far Eastern Question (1896), Serbia and the Serbs (1914), The End of the Ottoman Empire (1920) and The Egyptian Problem (1921). He is generally credited with popularizing "Middle East" in reference to the Arabian Peninsula with his book The Middle Eastern Question (1903). "Chirol" is a US citizen and graduate student studying Defense and Strategic Studies and government contractor. As with the historical Chirol, he has traveled to over two dozen countries and lived abroad for many years. Chirol speaks English and German fluently with basic knowledge of manyl of others.

    Good old Sealand. I think I first heard about them from a big feature article in Wired 6-7 years ago.
