Linking up to Austen in August, hosted by Lost Generation Reader. I love this event, so look forward to a few more Austen related posts in the coming month!
One of the exciting things about living in the UK for this Kiwi girl is the chance to visit places that have historical and literary significance. Last week we took an unexpected day off when my sister-in-law visited us and took a day trip to Chatsworth. This stately home came into being in 1549! That's approximately 300 years longer than my home country has had European settlement! It's the subject of many non-fiction titles, and also inspired many famous literary icons (it's believed to be the original inspiration for Jane Austen's Pemberly and many of the adaptations have been filmed there). Here's some photos from our lovely day out!
