I know I’ve been MIA — blame it on the flu! But I wanted to post info about my upcoming class next week:
Traveling to Wales — Dragons, Castles, and Books
* Presented by our resident globetrotter Jo Ann Ferguson
* Class Dates: February 1st thru February 14, 2010
* Fee $15 for Non-Beau Monde Members & $10 for Members
Wales proudly claims to have more castles per square mile than any other country. Those castles range from the Stone Age to the Victorian era…and some
of them are connected with the legends surrounding Merlin. Did someone mention dragons? How about music? The industrial revolution?
Medieval resistance armies? A prince who sailed to North America before Columbus? The first and best book town?
Find out about Wales, a charming land with ancient traditions, surrounded on three sides by the sea. In the many small towns, a traveler can visit buildings
that weren’t “victorianized”, losing what our Regency characters would have encountered. Whether you write Regencies or medievals, Wales offers beautiful settings and fascinating history. And did I mention that book town???
