At long last, here is my trip to the Jane Austen Festival in Bath – part 1

Tweet After a dreadfully long time I am now finally ready to post some pictures! I had planned to do it as soon as I got back home, (which I did on Tuesday!) but things were so busy once I got back and we were going away again this weekend so I literary had no time to! Let me first say that I went away to England expecting to have a wonderful time. I ended up however having a far, far lovelier time even than I had anticipated! I left home early Friday morning, arriving at Stansted in England around … Continue reading

My Journey With Austen (so far) continued

Tweet In the autumn of 2006 my family was planning a trip to England. Or rather, I planned a trip to England. I had come to the conclusion that I really, really wanted to visit Jane Austen’s House, Chawton Cottage, and so convinced the rest of my family that it was absolutely necessary for us to go for a week long trip to the country where the greatest author in history lived. We drove down from London to Hampshire, until we saw this sign! The for a lot of Janeites well known house soon came into view. Chawton Cottage (or … Continue reading

My journey with Austen (so far)

Tweet Personally I always find it interesting to hear people’s stories of how they came to read Jane Austen’s books, so I thought I should share with you how I first came in contact with her work. I had heard of Jane Austen before, but I never really concidered reading her books (indeed, I didn’t even know what books she had written!) until November 2004. At the time I was, together with my family, on a six months trip around the world. We were at our first stop, which was Ann Arbor in Michigan. Being a family where 100% of us could … Continue reading
