Warrior, Scholar, Traveler, Writer.
 
Sir Richard Francis Burton was a British explorer, geographer, translator, writer, soldier, orientalist, cartographer, ethnologist, spy, linguist, poet, fencer, and diplomat. He knew how to speak about 29 languages and dialects.

He was born in 1821 and died because of a heart attack in 1890. His interest in travels and eastern culture started when he joined the army in India. Some of his adventures include a visit to Mecca, strictly forbidden for non-Muslims at that time and a visit to the capital of Somalia, Harar, where none other white man was left alive.

He wrote more than 30 books, and also translated eastern ones like “The Book of One Thousand and One Nights” and “Kama Sutra”.

He used to have a great popularity among women and I totally understand why. He wasn’t only a pretty face but an interesting and intelligent man.

Some #storyseeds  heading your way.
The Middle English poem Sir Gawain and the Green Knight and its Old Irish ancestor The Feast of Bricriu recount a remarkable stranger's challenge to the hero, in effect, 'You can chop off my head if you'll let me return the blow.'

The blood ran down the street faster than the fugitive's dead body fell. He had made it through half the precinct alongside his cronies. Now, his life drained into the grated manhole six inches from his exploded scalp. The other two fidgeted on the far end of the alley, clawing at the bottom ...
