History and Heritage Travel Destinations

Have you noticed how each country focuses on teaching their children 'heritage' and only focus a little of general world history? Well that's because for each one of us, our heritage is more important than the history of other civilizations. We pride ourselves in what our forefathers have achieved and feel a sense that we are a part of it. This section focuses on major 'heritage' travel destinations that can take us back to where it all began.
