There are many ways to use literature as your jumping-off point and inspiration for exploring the world. Maybe you yearn to visit the settings of your favorite works of fiction. Or perhaps you’d like to trace the footsteps of a famous author or stand at the site that was at the crux of a historical event that you’ve learned about. You may want to experience for yourself the cultures and places that inspired a particularly evocative memoir. Guess what? All of these things are possible! There’s even an entire book devoted to literary travel! Richard Kreitner’s Booked is a traveler’s guide to literary locations on 6 of the 7 continents. But, if your “to-read” docket is brimming over right now like mine is, take this short list of suggestions to get you started:
If you are interested in actually meeting authors and sharing your love of literature and travel with other like-minded book nerds, there are opportunities such as Emerald Waterways’ recent river cruise to the Henley Literary Festival and Avalon Waterways “Storyteller Series.” Upcoming cruises include sailing with Candace Bushnell (Sex & the City) on the Danube and Diana Gabaldon (Outlander) on the Rhine.
