Here I post about all things fantasy and give tips on writing a book based on my experience. My three main books form a trilogy called the Prophecy of the Kings, a Gold Award Winning book, and I've also written Drachar's Demons. Happy to chat so please feel free to comment on any of my blogs. Good reading - David
Just come back from Sorrento, Italy. It's our 112th wedding anniversary, in wife years of course.
Pompeii is amazing. The spot above was very tranquil, a peaceful spot give the violent history of the location. It's hard to visit without remembering all the people who lost their lives, but it is an amazing archaeological site. The ruins are fantastic and show how well some Romans lived, with their central heating and rich lifestyles. Some of the remains are unbelievably well preserved, given they are nearly 2000 years old.
Sorrento itself was gorgeous. The whole area is a mixture of steep cliffs and buildings perched precariously upon them. The roads are dreadful. We went on the Amalfi Drive which everyone recommends. Really interesting (in terms of twisty one way roads) and stunning views. Well worth a visit.
