BW27: Eurorail through Europe


Can you believe we are halfway through the year?  Monday is July 1st and that means it's time to continue our travels across the continents.  If you've been doing the continental, I hope you had a grand time traipsing through Africa and are ready to take a ferry from Morocco over to Spain where we will begin our trip through Europe.  I'm going to splurge on a global Eurorail pass which will let me visit multiple countries and take a champagne tour through France, watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham palace, sleep in a historic castle in Ireland, explore the black forests of Germany, or perhaps hike up through the Swiss Alps.

Currently in my backpack is Carlos Ruiz Zafon's The Midnight Palace, Italo Calvino's If on a Winter's Night a Traveler,  Frank Delaney's Ireland, and Matt Rees' Mozart's Last Aria.

Check out the link above Eurorail through Europe where I've highlighted a couple books from several countries to help get you started on your travels.   How about taking a literary tour of Europe.  Be sure to check out Adelante's program- Ireland's Nobel Literature or Literary Traveler's Le Belle Epoque in Paris.  Or take a tour of libraries starting with the world's largest library, The National Library of Spain  in Madrid, founded in 1712 by King Philip V.  Be sure to check out Flavorwire's stunning photo's of Europe's Most Beautiful Libraries.
