I love to travel. I love finding new places, meeting new people, and seeing new sights. So it’s with great pleasure I tune into Wyn’s travel blog and read about her travels.

I’m reading about Eleanor of Aquitaine, and was amazed to see that although living in the twelfth century, she travelled extensively through Europe and the Orient, even going on the Crusades with her first husband, the king of France. Eleanor was a thoroughly modern woman living in an age where things were changing rapidly. Her influence on that time is not negligeable (She married two kings, was kidnapped twice, went on the Crusades, and raised seven children!)

Have fun reading Wyn’s travel blog, and if you would like to know more about Eleanor of Aquitaine, there are some wonderful books (both fiction and nonfiction) available.
