“A traveler without observation is a bird without wings.”              — Moslih Eddin Saadi

No matter where you go, every place has a story.   From great struggles against oppressive forces to human inguenity, the people and the places who have defined significant eras in human history move many to travel see where history was made.   Being able to walk where history was made, seeing the places that shaped legendary figures or experiencing life as our ancestors did, travel allows history to come to life in ways that transcend a history book.
