Nick and Claudia are traveling the world for a year, from June 2011 to June 2012. We'll be using this site to keep all our friends and family (and anyone else who's interested) up to date on our travels.
Nick is reading: Wittgenstein's Mistress by David Markson: pretty out there and experimental, but at least I'm learning how to drop the names of artists well! Shadows and Wind by Robert Templer: daring and damning view of modern-day Vietnam, its challenges and faults, as well as a lot of hope and positivity about the spirit of a people that has been through a lot in the last hundred yearsl Of Human Bondage by W. Somerset Maugham: trying to tackle a classic by an old favorite author. War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy: still taking advantage of our copious reading time to attack some of the longest books ever written. Not sure I'll make it through this one, though.
Claudia is reading:
Shadows and Wind by Robert Templer: an insight into modern-day Vietnam.
The Girl who Kicked the Hornets Nest by Stieg Larsson: the third in the trilogy, this one might be the best one yet!
