May 02, 2020 by Freddie, 2 minute read time

Widely considered two of the finest travelogues ever penned, “A Time of Gifts” and “Between the Woods and the Water” make a perfect read before, during or after a trip to Transylvania. Having been expelled from a British boarding school, Fermor decided to walk from Holland to Istanbul, a journey that he began in 1933. Observant, curious, good-humoured and energetic, he keeps a journal of his experiences, which he later transformed into these two volumes.
