Author Envy

Just finished The World Without US last night. Depressing at times, but ultimately uplifting. The last emotion I felt was jealousy, as I read the author's acknowledgments. I realized that he had traveled to all the places he wrote about in the book.

And then I cracked open my next read, The Discovery of France: A Historical Geography from the Revolution to the First World War / Graham Robb, to learn in his intro that he rode his bicycle for 14,000 miles around France in order to learn about her. Again - that twinge of envy!

Where does one sign up for these globetrotting jobs?
