Robert Louis Stevenson - Travel Writer

Robert Louis Stevenson - November 13, 1850 – December 3, 1894

Robert Louis Stevenson is best known for his novels Treasure Island, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and The Black Arrow: A Tale of the Two Roses to name just a few. However, did you know that he was also a very accomplished travel writer? He was!

In 1878 he set off across the remote Cévennes mountain range in France with only one small donkey, Modestine for company. His classic account of this eventful journey is entitled: Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes. This is one of the first books to present hiking and camping as recreational activities. It also tells of commissioning one of the first sleeping bags.

A Historic Kiss

Often it is daytime television that pushes the envelope, and created history within that media. And that dear readers is exactly what As The World Turns did with their Noah and Luke storyline. If you are prude I'll warn you that the kiss in the vid clip above is definitely hot, hot hot!!! And I am very happy to see this soap further breaking down sexual barriers within pop culture.

Definitely a historic kiss!
