Journal Entry 1 by Lubiette from Kallithea, Attica Greece on Thursday, February 04, 2016
Patrick Leigh Fermor was only 18 when he set off to walk from the Hook of Holland to Constantinople, a now famous journey described many years later in A Time of Gifts and Between the Woods and the Water. It was during these early wanderings that he started to pick up languages wherever he went, and where he developed his extraordinary sense of the continuity of history: a quality that deepens the colours of every place he writes about, from the peaks of the Pyrenees to the cell of a Trappist monastery.
