Some people like to tour with absolutely no preconceptions; that's not me. For me to really enjoy an area, I want to know it all - the local history, geography, traditional music, archeology... just a complete sponge. I'll look at the obvious scenic views, but then I'll pull out a pocket GPS and head off through the underbrush because over THERE is where some decisive battle happened in the 12th Century nobody cares about anymore, or some highwayman used to prey on carriages when there was a road there in the 15th Century. The traces of it all may be long gone, but you sometimes come up with surprising things that nobody else finds as you tramp along the way.
