Many passionate travelers are also passionate readers. The same quest for knowledge and experience that compels us to go out and explore the world we live in also keeps us exploring the worlds – both those real and imagine, now and in the past or future – created by our favorite authors.
And sometimes, all those worlds collide. We read novels set in places we love, we learn about our next destination by reading about the lives of people who call that place home, we visit the homelands of our favorite authors or seek to recreate the journeys we followed in the pages of a book.
This week on BootsnAll, we’re exploring the intertwined worlds of literature and travel. First up, we’ll tour some of the most famous literary watering holes and show you where you can drink like your favorite author. Then we’ll see some of the most beautiful libraries you can visit on your travels and show you how a literature lover can plan a trip based on some of the most famous authors and books.
