  1. Did you look up Kafka’s house in Prague? It was not what I expected. Victor Hugo’s exile looks quite comfortable. I used to live near Haworth – it really is wuthering up there…

  2. I’ve visited Haworth and Dove Cottage. I’d really love to visit Colette’s house in France.

      1. Haworth lived up to my expectations. The village has a few second hand book shops which are great to browse around.

  3. Oh, these are all lovely, Marina Sofia. And I always enjoy getting to see homes of authors. I’m finding hard to choose between Dove Cottage and Eminescu’s home for the one I like best. Actually, they’re all great.

  4. Tricky choices this week 🙂
    Haworth & Dove Cottage are in lovely, vaguely familiar parts of the country. The German buildings appeal to my sense of symmetry and the others look peaceful in their woody surroundings. So I think it would be the Camus dwelling, tucked into an interesting looking street ready for exploring on foot.

  5. I like Wordworth’s cottage and Phillip Pullman’s garden shed. I just am not one for big mansions or regal homes. I like cozy and surrounded by plants and flowers.
