Two of my favourite things together: Kashmir and Austen

 

"To sit in the shade on a fine day, and look upon verdure, is the most perfect refreshment." -  Mansfield Park, Jane Austen 

Kashmir's pristine beauty seems so effortlessly picturesque. While I travelled through this gorgeous place, I had Austen for company.

It is indeed a perfect spot to curl up with a book :)

Thank you :) Yes I read that, what a lovely post! Needless to say, I agree 100% and love that Kenzaburo Oe quote. I'm glad I discovered Austen, for things have never been the same afterward.
