BW18: Mediterranean May

Courtesy of Child

Welcome to Mediterranean May and continuing our armchair travels east of the Prime Meridian.  While some continue their voyage with Darwin on the HMS Beagle, I'll be disembarking and sailing through the Straits of Magellan to cruise the Mediterranean. The sea is bordered by 3 continents and 22 countries as well as a variety of islands. .  We'll spend the next couple months exploring which will give those traveling with Darwin a chance to catch up. You can dive into history, plunge into mysteries,scale the highest peaks or dip into the valleys and submerse your palate in the fine wines and various cuisines offered by the different countries.  The sea is your oyster.

Currently in my backpack are several non fiction books including Rod Dreher's How Dante Can Save Your Life in preparation for reading Dante's Divine Comedy during Philosophical June. 

As well as Stacy Schiff's Cleopatra 

as well as historical fiction including Ben Kane's Spartacus the Gladiator

Have fun exploring!
