I told you last week I'd share some pictures of an author's home I once visited. While in England, my sister and I visited the home of the great English writer Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817). She was an English novelist whose books are still widely read today. Some of her books I enjoyed are Pride and Prejudice, and Emma. During her lifetime, her works brought little fame, and only a few positive reviews.

The first picture is of her home in Winchester.



This next picture is of the Wichester Cathedral where she was buried.

That's cool, that you visited Jane Austen's home. Did you pick up any special vibes there? :)

Thanks for the photos.

Oh my word! Will you be my travel guide someday? Let's take a writer's group field trip!

I would LOVE to visit places like this. Jane Austen's? Seriously?

How absolutely inspiring that must have been.
