Since the release of Arthur Ransome’s Swallows and Amazons in 1930’s, each and sundry, kids and elderly, all have been equally captivated by this tale of companionship and adventure. And this enchanting story has recently been adapted into a movie reviving the nostalgic memories of the blithe, heroic exploits of youth. The narrative by Arthur Ransome was so picturesque that we can literally envisage the beautiful places. These vivid places and environment that he described in the book were not imaginary, but they depicted the real backdrops and vistas of beautiful Lake district. He weaved the story of the heroic adventures magnificently in the locales of Windermere & Coniston Water.
The good part is we can recreate our Own Swallows & Amazons Adventure journey and follow the footsteps of our favourite protagonists enjoying the different activities like sailing, treasure hunting etc.
