Armchair travel

I love to travel, but I can’t always get away.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll enjoy this virtual Google Maps Tour of Famous Authors’ Homes that I happened to come across on Flavorwire. The tour starts out with Ernest Hemingway’s digs at 113 Rue Notre-Dame-des-Champs — Paris France, includes the apartment building where Jack Kerouac crashed (his girlfriend’s place) while he was revising On the Road, and ends with Fyodor Dostoevsky’s apartment at 5/2 Kuznechny Lane — St. Petersburg, Russia where he  wrote The Brothers Karamazov which he finished shortly before his death in 1881.

It’s not the same as an actual real live visit, but it may give you something to dream about while you save your pennies.
