A Google Map of Lewis Carroll’s Visit to Moscow

As any serious fan of Lewis Carroll knows, he only left his beloved British Isles once in his entire life.  And no, it was not to visit America and see a Broadway show–although I’m pretty sure he would have enjoyed that, too.  His one trip abroad was to Moscow.  He and his friend and traveling companion Henry Liddon both recorded copious observations in their diaries, and their thoughts are fascinating to read (If you haven’t already, check out The Russian Journal sometime).

Now, in keeping with modern times, the web site Russia: Beyond the Headlines has put together a brief article about the trip, including a Google map showing key destinations, so that you can walk in Lewis Carroll’s footsteps.  To read all about it (in English), click here!

    It’s always called the Russian trip as that was his final destination, but he also visited France, Belgium, and Germany on his way there. Not to mention the several-thousand-mile loop in Russia itself, including St. Petersburg.
