Serendipia by Traveller Made
THE MYTH OF SERENDIP
Serenpidity means a “fortunate happenstance” or “pleasant surprise”.
The term was coined by Horace Walpole in 1745.
In a letter he wrote to a friend , Walpole explained an
unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a
Persian fairy Tale, The Three princes of Serendip*.
The Princes, he told his correspondant, were “always
making discoveries, by accident and sagacity,
of things which they were not in quest of”.

*Serendip is the ancient name for Ceylan, today Sri Lanka.
