Museums and Places
As I’m missing travelling so much, especially to great historic places I decided to start re-visiting the guides I have purchased from many Museums around the globe.
I am a bad Museum visitor in many ways as I do not read all of the text the curators and exhibition designers have spent so long writing. Instead I only read what attracts me and I purchase the guide book at the end so I can take it home and read about what I’d seen in my own time. For this reason I have a lot of guide books so I’ve decided to start reading through them again and reminiscing.
This serves as the basis for the places I've noted below. As time allows I will add to this collection of Museums and historic places that I really enjoy.
St. Petersburg, Russia
With a title “The Hermitage in 1 Hour”, I thought this was a good book to spend a little bit of time reading. It was great to take a trip back to the Hermitage.

The Tower of London
London, United Kingdom
The first book I randomly grabbed off my shelf was “Experience the Tower of London Souvenir Guidebook” (Historic Royal Places, 2007).
