Thoughts on Thursday: Literary Vacation

Literary Vacation 

Many of the historical books I’ve read are set in Europe, particularly England. A large part of my focus of my English minor (and English teaching degree) was focused on British literature (and American). I discovered some books that will stick with me for the rest of my life, such as Remains of the Day, which I still own all these years later. The Secret Garden is perhaps the first book I truly remember peaking my interest and realizing how different the British lifestyle is – or just the European lifestyle in general.

I’d also like to visit Venice. I’ve read several books set in this beautiful city, as well as a few historical period movies.

How awesome would it be to just take a book vacation, visiting all those spots from great books along the way?

 

Where would you travel for a literary vacation?

  1. I think Prince Edward Island would be highest on my list. I know I’m cliche, but oh well! 🙂 Thanks for sharing with us at Booknificent Thursday on Mommynificent.com this week!

    • Yay, Prince Edward Island! I am an Alabama boy, but my Dad is from the island. I went there when I was twelve. I remember sulkie-cart horse races, lobster, and red potatoes. Gosh, that place is little more than a sandbar. I understand that there is now a bridge connecting it to the mainland. When I went, it was by ferry. {Dad got seasick.}
      You are probably referencing ‘Anne of Green Gables’ as your literary stop.
      Happy Reading, Mommynificent!
