The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
Old houses of British province give us a feeling like they just came out of the pages from fairy tales. They are traditions which are carefully preserved and passed on from generation to generation. Looking at these wonderful homes, it seems that behind those doors there is a lit fireplace and someone is cooking the most delicious English tea.

Scenic views are the most priceless part of the amenity-packed cruise experience. And, as savvy travelers seek more adventure opportunities, cruise lines are responding by charting a course to ever more beautiful—and remote—corners of the map.
