“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.” ~ Mason Cooley
In this time when people are self-isolating in the hope of avoiding the spread of COVID-19, and travellers have been advised to rather stay home, what better way to still trot the globe than from the comfort of your own armchair? That’s the beauty of reading, and it’s also one of the reasons why I wrote the MYTHICAL MENAGERIE series – to help me revisit all my favourite European cities when I couldn’t do so in person.
In HUNTER’S RESOLVE, the fifth installment of the series, Ambrose Davids finds himself in Rome, on the trail of a trafficker. The Eternal City is a bucket list destination for many and while Italy is currently in quarantine with its borders closed off to the rest of the world, following Ambrose on his adventures might just be the best way to enjoy this beautiful city.
Here are a few of my favourite images from across the web showing scenes of Ambrose’s Rome to get your imagination going. Enjoy!

Are you inspired by travel destinations? Do you like to read stories that are set in places where you’ve been or where you’d like to go? Have you ever been to Rome?
