Crossing Asia Minor with Alexander

From the middle of February to the middle of March this year, I ran a short series of posts on my Alexander Facebook page titled Crossing Asia Minor with Alexander. They featured a quotation based on each place that Alexander visited in Asia Minor and one or more images.

Today, I leave the U.K. to begin a month long pilgrimage from Saint Jean Pied de Port to Santiago de Compostela. To keep the blog active while I am away (which may be up to five weeks), I thought I would repeat the Asia Minor posts here.

If you are interested in a place-by-place series of posts, I have also written a series of posts that cover Alexander in India. The first one appears on the Facebook page today. I will repeat them on this blog this summer.

If you are interested in my pilgrimage to Santiago, I will be doing my best to update my Instagram page Sehnsucht and Wine, and my blog of the same name, which you can find here.
