The Edges of the Mediterranean by Karen G. Strouse

Aboard their sailboat Swept Away, Karen and Art Strouse traveled from Spain's Balearic Islands to the coast of France and on to Italy, Corsica, Sardinia, Tunisia and Malta. The voyage took them to pristine harbors, ancient ruins, and coastal villages. While bobbing under sail along offshore swells, or rattling on a slow inland ride aboard a single-track train, or traveling on foot to glorious churches and expansive museums, they left the sunbather's beaches behind to discover the magic of the true Mediterranean. They indulged in Majorcan tumbet, French delicacies, long Italian feasts, Tunisian harissa, and Maltese street food. Struggling through the local languages, they learned that the real warmth of the summer Mediterranean comes from its people.
