I’m thrilled to post this! (Thanks, BajaJaneite for sending in the link — I’ve been wanting to share it with you all.)
I did a gallery for BeliefNet with pictures from my trip and thoughts on the spiritual Austen places I visited — spiritual being rather loosely defined, as in perhaps relating to (ahem…) the cult of Colin Firth. 😉
Check it out! The pics are some of my absolute favorites. They’re also running an excerpt from my book.

Oh, does that bring back memories. I visited Bath — I think it was the first time I was in England, with a group from my college. And I got sick as a dog. (Cramps, plus the effect of an underdone pig-in-a-blanket I’d unwisely eaten at a concession stand in Stonehenge.) I was so sick I was crouched on the floor in the museum, thankful it was dark in there, and trying to stay in a corner so I wouldn’t get trampled on! Needless to say, I couldn’t enjoy the place at all. I’d like to go back sometime when I could enjoy it! 🙂
Your photos are splendid! I enjoyed this little pilgrimage tour very much!
Lori, this is lovely, both the words and pictures. I believe I loved the Hampshire Fields most of all.
