On this day, 16th of December 1775 Jane Austin was born in Steventon, Hampshire. I love her works and have followed her from where she was born to their summer house in Bath, to her resting place at Winchester Cathedral. Jane said’ If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad’ Happy Birthday dear Jane 🌻

I searched for this book for many years across the world, and finally this copy was presented to me, marked by it’s previous owner in 1957. It was with very mixed feelings that I read it, and I will reserve my judgement. To follow on yesterday’s post about Dylan Thomas, her husband, it could not have been easy for her living with such an extraordinary person. Or without him...Have you read Leftover Life to kill? 🌻 #40yearjourney.co#travelblogger#travelblogging#bloggersofinstagram#travellifestyle#bloglife#tblogger#wanderlust#impressionists#wonderfulplaces#lovetotravel#roamtheplanet#seekmoments#booklover#lakedistrictuk#sculpture#momentsofmine#ednastvincentmillay#operahouse#mahler#wagner#vincentvangogh#johnkeats#wordsworth#bestintravel#cntraveler#dylanthomas#bbctravel#johnruskin#renaissanceart

The Boat House and Laugharne was exactly the way Dylan Thomas described it ‘ It is the strangest town in Wales’ But beautiful in it’s harshness, it is as if nothing has happened there since he left. Reading ‘The Love Letters of Dylan Thomas’ is quiet tragic, a lovesick poet, always searching 🌻 #40yearjourney.co#travelblogger#travelblogging#bloggersofinstagram#travellifestyle#bloglife#tblogger#wanderlust#impressionists#wonderfulplaces#lovetotravel#roamtheplanet#seekmoments#booklover#lakedistrictuk#sculpture#momentsofmine#ednastvincentmillay#operahouse#mahler#wagner#vincentvangogh#johnkeats#wordsworth#bestintravel#cntraveler#dylanthomas#bbctravel#johnruskin#renaissanceart

‘Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders, smooth
‘Death makes angels of us all and gives us wings where we had shoulders, smooth as ravens claws’ - Jim Morrison. It was a perfect summers day in Paris and the walk to his grave got busier as we got closer. It looked sad, cigarette buds and empty liquor bottles strewn around. A guy arrived with his guitar, obviously hoping to perform, but grief overtook him and he just sat there, like everyone else, staring into the beyondness of things 🌻 #40yearjourney.co#travelblogger#travelblogging#bloggersofinstagram#travellifestyle#bloglife#tblogger#wanderlust#impressionists#wonderfulplaces#lovetotravel#roamtheplanet#seekmoments#booklover#lakedistrictuk#sculpture#momentsofmine#ednastvincentmillay#operahouse#mahler#wagner#vincentvangogh#johnkeats#wordsworth#bestintravel#cntraveler#dylanthomas#bbctravel#johnruskin#renaissanceart

We visited the Chrysoroyiatissa Monastery dedicated to Our Lady of the Golden Po
We visited the Chrysoroyiatissa Monastery dedicated to Our Lady of the Golden Pomegranate, located about 40 kilometers north-east of Paphos. It is a windy road up the mountains, through the most beautiful forest and it is at an altitude of about 2 700 feet. The monastery was found by a monk called Ignatius in the 12th century. Beautiful there, and worth the ride 🌻 #40yearjourney.co#travelblogger#travelblogging#bloggersofinstagram#travellifestyle#bloglife#tblogger#wanderlust#impressionists#wonderfulplaces#lovetotravel#roamtheplanet#seekmoments#booklover#lakedistrictuk#sculpture#momentsofmine#ednastvincentmillay#operahouse#mahler#wagner#vincentvangogh#johnkeats#wordsworth#bestintravel#cntraveler#dylanthomas#bbctravel#johnruskin#renaissanceart

Mother Russia...walking on Red Square was a personal dream of mine. As we entered St Basil’s Basilica we heard the most incredibly heavenly voices and we searched through numerous little chambers until we found them. There were four gentleman singing Russian Sacred Songs...to this day it is impossible to put my feelings into words. The earth stood still, and it will live in my heart forever 🌻 We bought the CD and they are called Akchon. As I am posting this we are listening to the music...and in an instant we are back there again 🌻 #40yearjourney.co#travelblogger#travelblogging#bloggersofinstagram#travellifestyle#bloglife#tblogger#wanderlust#impressionists#wonderfulplaces#lovetotravel#roamtheplanet#seekmoments#booklover#lakedistrictuk#sculpture#momentsofmine#ednastvincentmillay#operahouse#mahler#wagner#vincentvangogh#johnkeats#wordsworth#bestintravel#cntraveler#dylanthomas#bbctravel#johnruskin#renaissanceart

Utrecht is one of my favorite cities in Holland, with some of the buildings dating back to the Middle Ages. It is also one of the few cities where one can sit right next to the canal. There are some beautiful restaurants there, and Winkel van Sinkel is a legend 🌻 #40yearjourney.co#travelblogger#travelblogging#bloggersofinstagram#travellifestyle#bloglife#tblogger#wanderlust#impressionists#wonderfulplaces#lovetotravel#roamtheplanet#seekmoments#booklover#lakedistrictuk#sculpture#momentsofmine#ednastvincentmillay#operahouse#mahler#wagner#vincentvangogh#johnkeats#wordsworth#bestintravel#cntraveler#dylanthomas#bbctravel#johnruskin#renaissanceart
