Heritage Travel

This is certainly not a comprehensive travel guide-book! Our intention here is to suggest some unique experiences of a heritage nature that you may be able to incorporate into your travels.  There is a little something for everyone from: visits to modernist architectural masterpieces in the US; to a rock museum in Norway; to local historic villages.  We will try to add to this list as regularly as we can, but we need your help. Please write to us and tell us your favourites!
