For quite some time I have been entertaining the idea of visiting Antarctica so to celebrate a milestone, my 21st Medical Romance, I have decided to take a trip. It’s only a virtual one at the moment but I am knee deep in research for this novel and I am loving it. Antarctica and the people who work there are fascinating and it is making me more determined than ever to visit one day.
I love to read and I love to travel so I always read about places I intend to visit but they are usually a bit more accessible than Antarctica!
I think my love affair with travel probably even started with a book- Enid Blyton’s “The Magic Faraway Tree”. I always wished I could visit one of the exotic lands that stopped at the top of the tree.
I love it when I am captivated by a story’s setting, when I can imagine myself soaking up the sunshine on Bondi Beach or window shopping on Fifth Avenue or hailing a London Cab.
Have you ever been inspired to take a trip or book a holiday because of a book you’ve read? What was the book? Where did you go? Or where are you intending to go?
P.S. My next big trip will be to NYC so any suggestions about what to read to put me in a New York state of mind will also be gratefully accepted!
