novel destinations

Although I haven't done this here before, I'd like to share a lovely blog I just found called Novel Destinations.

They describe themselves thus:

Novel Destinations: Literary Landmarks from Jane Austen's Bath to Ernest Hemmingway's Key West

The blog's authors Shannon Mckenny Schmidt and Joni Rendon have a book by the same name.

This Wordpress site features plenty of photos of famous authors' homes around the world, along with the latest news surrounding these fascinating locations. I found them while doing an Internet search on Rudyard Kipling, whose birthplace* in India is shown above.

*Some controversy surrounds this location; some contend the building itself cannot be his actual birthplace since a wood structure of that era would unlikely still be standing intact in that climate.
