Battered, bruised, but loved beyond measure: ‘The Magic Mountain’ by Thomas Mann. It’s taken me almost a year to read, and I’ve carried the book to Austria,,Italy, Germany, France and England, as I’ve immersed myself in the story of Hans Castorp. What a joy! #thomasmann #themagicmountain #derzauberberg #hanscastorp #claudiachauchat #reading #ayearwellspent

I saw the Bayeux Tapestry on a school trip when I was fourteen, and I returned forty years later with my own kids. It’s almost 1,000 years old but as fascinating and beautiful as ever. #bayeux #bayeuxtapestry #tapisseriedebayeux #tapisserie #tapestry #1066 #williamtheconqueror #battleofhastings #battleofhasting1066 #kingharold #normandy #normanconquest
