I have a passion for ancient Roman history and English history, always seeking historical sites, especially in European travel. No time for shopping or lying on beaches; there is so much history to discover! My husband and I will walk long distances to see a Roman aqueduct in the countryside of Italy or to explore battlefields of the War of the Roses in Yorkshire. But after all that heavy duty sightseeing, we do like to be comfortable and eat well, so we seek out the better hotels and restaurants...not the Ritz, but still upscale!
