“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”               – St. Augustine

Learning about the places that shaped and inspired writers and musicians can add deeper understanding to a work of literature or a song.  Because of the significance these works have in our lives, traveling to explore the life of a famous writer or see the creative communities that produced music for defining a generation can touch and enrich travelers in profound ways.
