Italienische Reise

By: Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Fruh drei Uhr stahl ich mich aus Karlsbad, weil man mich sonst nicht fortgelassen hatte. Die Gesellschaft, die den achtundzwanzigsten August, meinen Geburtstag, auf eine sehr freundliche Weise feiern mochte, erwarb sich wohl dadurch ein Recht, mich festzuhalten; allein hier war nicht langer zu saumen.

Following the Equator

By: Mark Twain

Chapter I. A man may have no bad habits and have worse.?Pudd?nhead Wilson?s New Calendar. The starting point of this lecturing-trip around the world was Paris, where we had been living a year or two.

The climate disappointed me, but, though I found the country a...
