My next and final destination for my #BackpackEurope trip was #Norway, home sweet home! Nice to be back:) The picture is from one of my hikes this summer ☀️

I finished up my trip reading 'I Curse The River of Time' by Per Petterson. I enjoyed this one, just like all books I have read by Petterson.

All in all a great trip!! Thanks for the fun, everyone!:)
My favourite stay this time was #France with 'The Life Before Us' - beautiful book ❤️

mabell Great picture! 😍 10mo

Iceland's Bell | Halldor Laxness

It's been a while since I updated my #BackpackEurope trip, but I have been travelling!! At least literary. In real life, I've been really busy moving, it sure takes time to prepare an apartment for sale!!

Went on to #Iceland after leaving London early in September, and had a beautiful stay with the tagged book. It gave a great picture of Iceland, the beautiful nature and the people in ancient Iceland.

What a sweet novel! I glided through this book and enjoyed every bit. I‘ve been a fan of the 90‘s film for forever, so it was high time I experienced the original.

I finished just in time for the end of #BackpackEurope! This challenge was loads of fun. Thanks again for hosting, @JenP and @BookwormM!

Rissreads It‘s being made into a film again. It stars Emma Watson, Meryl Streep, Timothy Chalamet and Saoirse Ronan. Directed by Greta Gerwig. It will be very interesting to see how it compares. 11mo
Linsy @Rissreads Ooh, there‘s so much of it lately! Have you seen the recent Masterpiece edition? I loved it! 11mo
Rissreads No I haven‘t. I will have a look 👀 11mo

Summer at Tiffany | Marjorie Hart

Magical! The best word to describe this story of two University of Iowa girls living and working in NY in the summer of 1945.

It was full of moments big and small - the first women to work on the floor of Tiffany, the WWII Pacific surrender, eating at the Automat (oh, how I wish I could have eaten there!), going on dates with midshipmen, seeing the ocean for the first time... Every minute was wonderful, I loved it!

Now on to home!

Summer at Tiffany | Marjorie Hart

After my thoroughly enjoyable #BackpackEurope excursion, I flew back to the U.S. of A. for one last stop before heading home - spending a little time in NYC.

What better way to close out my summer trip than hearing Marjorie Hart retell the story of her amazing summer in that fabulous city in 1945. 😍❤️

Gissy That was a long but amazing vacation! Now you will need two weeks to rest☺️ 11mo
mabell @Gissy At *least* two weeks! 😂 But it was terrific! 11mo

Time to head home from my fictional vacation. Thank you @BookwormM and @JenP for this awesome #BackpackEurope challenge! It inspired me to finally read some of those #classics on my TBR. I had fun!!

SilversReviews Those suitcases are so adorable. 11mo
Linsy @SilversReviews Thanks! I got the paper from Daphne‘s Diary. I am obsessed with that magazine! (edited) 11mo
SilversReviews @Linsy That is paper? Cool...I thought you had cut out individual suitcases. Going to check out the site...thanks. 11mo

Linsy @SilversReviews It‘s a craft that‘s included in the magazine. I think I was supposed to cut them out, but I thought they made an adorable background. Each magazine is full of paper crafts and recipes and articles. I love it!! 11mo
SilversReviews @Linsy 😍😍😍I went on the site. Love it too. Thanks. 11mo
Linsy @SilversReviews So glad I could introduce you! 😁 11mo

I had looked forward to capping off my #WhimsicalTour by enjoying the fantastical adventures of Baron Munchausen. I love the absurd!

However, I found these tales to be rather unpalatable. Just about every story involved animal mutilation or grotesque injury (generally to someone other than the Baron.) The absurdity quickly became monotonous, and any humor was far outweighed by the repulsive harm inflicted.

On the positive side ⬇️

mabell this step in my journey had the fortunate side effect of relieving me of any hesitancy in bidding Europe adieu, or auf wiedersehen, and returning home!
