Experience What You Read in Travel Narratives on Mediterranean Cruises

Many people who travel around the world decide to write about it. The experiences of Mark Twain and Bill Bryson fuel the imaginations of a newer generation of travelers that long for adventure and eagerly read every word and pore over every description. If the time has come to stop traveling vicariously and actually get out there to see the world, Mediterranean cruises are one of the best ways for the newly minted traveler to explore.

If you've ever read a Bill Bryson book, you've probably felt it: the envy and yearning that comes with reading about fantastic places that you have seen pictures of and heard about for most of your life but haven't gotten to experience firsthand. Aside from Bryson's wicked sense of humor, the settings of his travels are often one of the most important parts of his storytelling. Turning green isn't the answer. If you are itching to take a trip so you can tell your own anecdotes and write your own narrative, Mediterranean cruises are for you.

Mediterranean cruises afford you the opportunity to see many different locations on one trip without the hassle of making individual hotel arrangements or deciding where to eat every day and night. You can relax on the cruise ship on the way to and from your destinations and then hop off the boat to see the sights and enjoy the best of what the area has to offer. Some of the most famous and historic sites line the Mediterranean Sea: The Parthenon and the Pantheon await classical history buffs; the pyramids are the only original wonder of the world left; Spain has Gibraltar, and France and Italy have a legendary Riviera.

If you haven't visited many places yet, Mediterranean cruises are a great way to start traveling. Follow Twain's footsteps around the Mediterranean and write your own version of The Innocents Abroad. Maybe the next travelogue that people read with yearning will be yours.
