Victor Hugo was exiled here for 15 years and I had the good fortune of taking a tour today of the writer's home. It's as if each room was a chapter and the home was actually another book. I'll let a few of the pictures speak for themselves.

He is certainly quotable but thus one resonates-
"Nothing makes a man so adventurous as an empty pocket.'
It is here where the writer completed his masterpiece,  Les Miserables, using a stand up desk..Sitting was the new smoking back then too.

Hugo wrote Latin phrases into his furniture, honoring God and also his beloved writers Moliere and Shakespeare. in his kitchen, the "H" in the wall tiles, we'll that stands for hisfamily's name obviously.
