“The past is a foreign country”, as LP Hartley declared in 1953. So finding out about the history of a foreign country feels doubly exotic and intriguing. While people’s hearts don’t perhaps change much from age to age and from country to country, the way they live certainly does. How would you have fared as a prisoner in the Bastille? As an ancient Athenian philosopher teaching in the Acropolis? As a pioneer in the Australian penal colonies? Imagine yourself into a thousand different lives as you explore the culture and history of the countries you visit, touring ancient buildings and gazing at iconic works of art that call up the spirit of their ages to suffuse and fascinate the modern traveller.
