For my partner and I, travel and books go together. With a busy schedule throughout the year, travel not only offers us a much welcome respite from the routine toil but also gives us the opportunity to dive into a good book and escape.
A few years back we bought a 16th century house in a walled city in the centre of the Mediterranean sea. The history of the city with stories of knights, Grand Masters and crusades intrigued us. The friendliness of its people overwhelmed us. We were hooked.
We decorated it and furnished it according to what we would have looked for in a holiday home, respecting its history and character while also including modern comforts. The finishing touch was a little library for those weary travellers who, like us, find books helpful in unwinding all the tensions built up over the year. We called the accommodation Valletta G-House. Later on we added another accommodation, a beautiful 16th century town house we called Indulgence Divine.
Then we came across Book-Crossing and thought what an excellent idea. We like the idea of books accompanying people's travels. Who knows where they might travel? We think there is an intrinsic link between our accommodations and Book-Crossing. We bought a few books and found others in our library we would like to share with others and intend on building a collection that travels with like-minded people. If you have some time, do have a look at our accommodations vallettahouse.com and indulgencedivine.com and see for yourself.
