I have no idea where I found the following website but I thought I would post it up because I must say I think it is one of the better ones I have found.
The address is: http://www.literarytraveler.com
|An example of their articles. Even if you didn't book a tour|
you can get a good idea these places exist and go on your own.
It is a website that combines travel around the world with various authors and the places where they either lived or wrote about.
For example the latest edition has a lovely article of a place to get the feel for The Great Gatsby on Long Island, New York.
There is another article about Cuba related to that country's literature and also articles about interesting people who were either authors or involved with them.
One can sign up for the newsletter at the site and so far I have only received a couple of newsletters so they aren't bombarding my email box as often happens.
I hope it is something you might enjoy as much as I do as I have often enjoyed the travels of book bloggers and their wonderful photos and you might just find some interesting places not far from where you live to visit that tie in with a favourite book.
For example I am visiting family in the United States in November and will spend about 10 days in the San Francisco area. I am hoping to visit the Jack London National Park at Sonoma California and the John Steinbeck Centre near Monterey California.
No doubt I am going to get some new ideas from this newsletter.
