A couple of months ago I went to a lecture in Dordrecht… now the fact that this lecture was followed by a delicious high tea, may have persuaded me to actually make the effort to drive all the way to Dordrecht. But the topic of this lecture really appealed to me… the lecture was about Jane Austen and more specifically about travelling in Jane Austen’s time.
Now I won’t go into details about this lecture again… you can read all about it in this post. The reason why I look back on it now is the fact that the woman who gave that lecture, the lovely Karin Quint, is looking for Jane Austen fans to back her Kickstarter campaign.
