"At home we are content to move in the daily round of pleasure and business ... but in a foreign country curiosity is our business and our pleasure; and the traveller, conscious of his ignorance and covetous of his time, is diligent in the search and the view of every object that can deserve his attention." Edward Gibbon 1737-1794
