    Mediterranean Winter is a really good read It is subtitled The pleasures of History and Landscape in Tunisia, Siciliy, Dalmatia and the Peloponnese It is a travel book that Robert Kaplan wrote in 2004 about a trip he took back in the 70s The focus of the book is actually on what it says history and landscape, and how they influenced each other I

    There are a handful of great travel writers of the 20th century In their number I would include Patrick Leigh Fermor, Freya Stark, Robert Byron, Lawrence Durrell, and Robert D Kaplan His Mediterranean Winter The Pleasures of History and Landscape in Tunisia, Sicily, Dalmatia and the Peloponnese is the type of travel book I love to read It is imbue

    Kaplan tells the story of his travels to Tunisia, Sicily, mainland Italy, Yugoslavia and Greece in the 1970 s, largely based upon the journals he was keeping at the time The strength of the book lies in his fleshing out impressions of each location with historical background, without making it seem as though he s padding out the book he has visited

    I am really captivated by Kaplan s books This one is done as a memory of his first travels in Europe in the mid 70 s but with an update of his return visits to some of these places over the years Here he focuses on Tunisia and I am reminded of the scene in Patton where he reminisces about fighting with the Romans and Kaplan brings up all of that anci

    Leuk boek waarin Kaplan vertelt over de geschiedenis van het gebied rond de Middellandse Zee op basis van een reis die hij in de jaren zeventig in dat gebied gemaakt heeft De verhalen die Kaplan vertelt over de geschiedenis van het Romeinse Rijk of de rijken daarvoor vond ik heel erg interessant en leuk om te lezen Sommige meer filosofische betogen wa

    Kaplan at his most poetic Beautifully written, filled with philosophical annotations that he relates to the places he traveled trough.

    Why Read As anyone who knows me well knows, I m a huge Robert Kaplan and Travel Book fan I had been searching for Mediterranean Winter for a very long time It never appealed to me in Kindle format much as I love the convenience of ereading So luckily, I found it in Marco Polo Library whew.Review It s hard to put into words exactly how much I loved this

    If able, I travel to the Bay area every year, being picked up at either the Oakland or San Francisco airports by Tom Miley Usually, after a few days at his home in the city, we drive up to his mountain home between Big Trees State Park and Lake Alpine, there to be joined by his brother Michael A light traveller, I bring nothan one book with me for the fl

    Robert D Kaplan s unique style of historical travel writing is finely demonstrated in this heartfelt volume While the setting is slightlyoffbeat and different from his previous works, he nonetheless delivers in his usual way, albeit with a slightly different setting.For those familiar with Kaplan s works, he employs his adept way of describing places thro
