Girls on Film – Travelling Book at the Baltic Sea

Girls on Film (an A-List novel), written by Zoey Dean, is definitely for teens and it was part of my daughter’s book collection.

While on holiday at the Baltic Sea, I’m going to release this book into the wild. This could be at the beach, or left on a chair at a restaurant, just about anywhere. If you happen to find this book, please drop me a note under comments. Would love to hear from you.

“Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.” –  Joan Crawford

Update: Read this book within two days and I released it on the bench in front of the fire department in Maasholm on 6 July 2014.

Liebeslänglich – Travelling Book at the Baltic Sea

The book Liebeslänglich, written by Susanne Mischke, is a detective story about a woman falling in love with a killer.

 

This used to be one my daughter’s books  and I plan on reading it during our holidays at the Baltic Sea this summer. After that, I’m going to release it into the wild. This could be at the beach, or left on a chair at a restaurant, just about anywhere. If you happen to find this book, please drop me a note under comments. Would love to hear from you.

Good detective story and I finished reading in just four days. Released it at a food vendor stand in Maasholm on 1 July 2014.

Chocolat – Travelling Book at the Baltic Sea

The book Chocolat, written by Joanne Harris, is a sensuous and thought-provoking story about an exotic stranger, leading villagers into temptation (rural France). It was such a pleasure to read this book. The movie, starring Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche, was not bad either.

A few days ago, one reader informed me she had just found my book Witchchild in Canada, which I had released in Athens/Greece in 2008. Some of these books really get to travel.

Just released the book at the hotel/restaurant “Am Schleieck” in Maasholm on 30 June 2014 at 9:52am.

Where to Get Free Drinking Water in Paris

After the Franco-Prussian War in 1972, the English philanthropist, Sir Richard Wallace financed 50 cast-iron drinking fountains, known as Wallace fountains, to the City of Paris (and to Lisburn).

The fountains with their free drinking water were a welcome gift to the poor in Paris, and new ones kept getting installed until the beginning of World War I.

Paris has more than three hundred fifty fountains, with the oldest one dating back to the 16th century.

Look out for these free water supplies along the most popular tourist walks. Drinking plenty of water while touring the city is a must. Yes, you may add some wine to that list, too. 🙂

Travelling Book in Fukuoka

Wouldn’t you like to read Melleron’s Monsters by Douglas Hill? If you do, you will find a free copy of the book at the Fukuoka Airport in Japan.

This is where I will release it into the wild.
