Finished reading THE PILLARS OF HERCULES by US novelist and travel writer Paul Theroux.
For 18 months in 1993-1994 Theroux travelled along the entire shoreline of the Mediterranean Sea. He began his journey from Gibraltar, regarded as one of the pillars of Hercules standing at the narrow Strait that links the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean. He concluded it in the Moroccan city of Ceuta, the other Pillar of Hercules. He passed through the coastlines of Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Albania, Malta Greece, Turkey, Syria, Israel, Egypt and Tunisia. As well as the islands of Corsica, Sardinia, Sicily and Cyprus. The journey was covered by land and sea, not by air.
In this book I followed Theroux's account with the help of Google maps, an effort that rewarded me tremendously.
