This blog is about my travels. At home in New Zealand, in other parts of Oceania, North, Central and South America and in Europe.
One of the first things I went to see was the ancient Hadrian's Library. It was built in 132 AD in the time of the Roman emperor Hadrian. One corner of the building contained papyrus scrolls, there were also reading rooms and lecture halls. This was a culture that valued learning! The building also contained an internal courtyard with a decorative pool. Parts of decorative mosaics on the floor are still visible. It must have been a beautiful building. I'm also always amazed by the skill of the archaeologists who work out so much about what went on thousands of years ago.
I am a traveller from New Zealand. My blog is to inform friends and family about my adventures. I hope you enjoy it!
