Ria Nicholas
Our Mission

We want to bring you a little historical background on some fun travel destinations, but . . .

. . . NOT the way it was taught in school years ago. History isn’t all about memorizing dates of battles and names of presidents and generals!

In reality, history is one hell of a ride! It’s the story of ALL of us – the good, the bad, and the ugly – and how we arrived where we are today.

As we travel down this road through time, we’re struck most of all by the incredible inventiveness and perseverance of the people we encounter along the way. We hope you’ll hop aboard and join our journey!
