Early tomorrow morning I am off to Yorkshire! I am so excited! Our first stop will be Whitby, home of the famous Abbey and inspiration of Bram Stoker to write Dracula…how we will fare in the wind and rain I do not know, but a bit of extreme weather isn’t enough to put two hardy Englishwomen off and we can’t wait to go for bracing walks along the beach and scare ourselves silly on a Dracula tour.
Next up will be Haworth, home of the Brontes, and a place I have been longing to visit since I wrote my dissertation on them. I am so thrilled to be getting to see the house where the Brontes lived, and the surrounding area that they knew and loved so well. I am also excited to go for a walk on the famous moors and I know I am going to love buying tat from the Bronte House gift shop!
So lots of fun to be had and I will be back on Monday evening to tell the tale of my trip and of course post lots of photos. I am secretly hoping that we may accidentally perhaps on purpose bump into a few second hand bookshops as well…so I will hopefully have some new purchases to show off too, even though I am not supposed to be buying any more books until Christmas!
I hope you all have lovely weekends and I will see you next week!
