I'm alternating between Cornwall (Victorian times I think) where I'm enjoying Christmas, and 16th century Italy.

12th- 13th century England.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

I'm in 17th C Amsterdam, painting a lecherous man's portrait, so that I can take up an apprenticeship with Johannes Vermeer, the master of Delft! The things we have to do to make our way in life. At least there's Pieter, grower of all things tulip............ ;) ;) say no more! :D

I'm still in 16th century Italy, but also now in modern-day Cambridge, at the university.

1878. I'm on a train to St Petersburg with a bunch of British diplomats and such. Mysterious things are starting to happen...
At home with a good book and the cat...

It's 1777. I'm in upstate NY embroiled in the Saratoga Campaign. (I rarely read more than one book at a time, but I have a few going that include this setting. It's an interesting experiment to see how the authors handle the subject matter and historical figures.)
