Question: What do you do with a travel blog when you’re not traveling?
Answer: Re-define the word travel.
There are many kinds of journeys, and it’s a rare day when I don’t go somewhere – to the market, to the tennis club, out through the Caldecott Tunnel, across San Francisco Bay, or just around the block. Most frequently the journey is inward, a thousand years into the past to a time and place I can only imagine (with a great deal of help from academics who have gone there before me).
So, as I expect to be more or less chained to my desk for the next six months, at least until the 47th International Medieval Congress next May in Kalamazoo, MI, this space will be devoted to a different kind of travel, as the spirit moves me.
