How I got to squeeze these all in my 20kg check-in bag on our flight back to Manila + my clothes, shoes, accessories, etc., I don't know. They all fit, thankfully. Airline check-in: 0, Paula: 1. Bookstore: Happy! Paula: Broke (but happy). 😂😂😂 Conclusion: books can really be much cheaper in the Philippines, but travel literature selection is quite limited. PS: Lookie @ricaperalejo.ph, I finally got my own copy of A Little History of the World. 💙 #travel#travelliterature#books#reading
“We set out in quest of a place not too far from Westminster. Vancouver, we decided, we knew all by heart, for it is our sister city, and we ride or drive, go by electric tram or C.P.R. train, backwards and forwards all the time. Boundary Bay, everyone said, was exactly the place we wanted; so dad and I drove over there—at least we thought we did.” . Canadian camp life by Frances E. Herring. London: T.F. Unwin, 1900. . #Canadiana150#Canada150#travelliterature#BritishColumbia
Ministry of Coffee, Elgin St., Ottawa. Latte thé aux amandes et un livre (qui souffre d'un petit déversement de latte) = parfait dimanche après-midi nuageux // Almond tea latte & a book = perfect cloudy Sunday afternoon
I've just started this, and am excited about the potential here; part travel literature (one of my favourite genres), part biography of Agatha Christie (one of my favourite authors), and part political insight into the Middle East during the early 2000s, it ticks a lot of boxes. Has anyone else read it?
