When, after crossing the border, I saw the EU circle of stars symbol, I lost my head and raised both fists in triumph. As well as feeling satisfied and elated at having made it all the way to Europe, I felt relieved at having made it safely to a more ‘civilised’ part of the world. The moment I left the border post the ‘civilised’ part of the world opened quietly ahead of me. (from "Against the Wind" - Poolbeg Press)
