Take Me Away...


Come away with me to Pemberley...


...and then we'll visit Norland too!


Sigh,
back to reality.
These places are fictional and
only made popular by Jane Austen
in her novels.



But my imagination loves them.



In fact, I  love all Jane Austen novels. 
I just went through a spurt of rereading them 
and watching the corresponding films.


I think
the best place to read one of these novels
is surrounded by the right environment.




So on a lovely day
I take a copy of Pride and Prejudice,
or perhaps Emma,
along with my imagination
to Princeton University.



It is like I am living in the novel.
If the students there would just wear period clothing,
it would be perfect!

I'm thinking the places may be fictional but the photos are not! I love seeing old buildings. I MUST come to PA someday.
