I am nothing more than a guy who likes to travel. Few people don’t like to grab their passport and make a run for the nearest airport or train station.
Am I right?
As well as seeing all the touristy things, I always search for unusual things about places. Like the reason there’s a statue of Darth Vader in Prague. Or the story behind the pagan astrological signs in a Roman Catholic cathedral in Milan.
There’s always a reason.
And there’s always a story.
I collect and write about these stories here – stuff you don’t readily find in guide books, but which add colour to a destination.
And which give you bragging rights since you can tell your friends, “Did you know this church was built by the Emperor’s brother to celebrate the fact his brother wasn’t killed by a deranged Hungarian?”
