If you were picking your holiday spot on the basis of its literary connections, where would you go?
San Francisco, New York, Florence, Paris, St. Petersburg?
U.S.–based company Literary Traveler caters to bibliophiles looking to travel into the world of books.
Literary tours include Montreal, (Mordecai Richler), Florence (Dante Alighieri), and London (Charles Dickens). Or meet Sick Boy on the Trainspotting tour of Leith and Edinburgh. "If it’s a really bad day Sick Boy himself will be behind the bar, serving with a snarl."
At the other end of the world, follow in the footsteps of Gauguin with exotic idylls in French Polynesia.
“Life is like a song. You have to enjoy it while it plays because you never know if it will come on again,” Paul Gauguin.
