Löfgren takes us on a travel of the Western vacation global and exhibits how centuries of "learning to be a tourist" have formed our personal methods of touring. We see how models in locations have replaced over the years, with well known photos (written, drawn, painted, and later photographed) educating the vacationer what to seem for and the way to event it. tourists current and destiny won't ever see their cruises, treks, ecotours, round-the-world trips, or journeys to the holiday cottage or apartment in relatively an identical method back. All our land-, sea-, and mindscapes would be the richer for Löfgren's insights.

This is an interesting and useful classification, although there will inevitably be some difficulties in identifying where consolidation ends and development begins. The reader is invited to consider this question when reading the chapters involving examples of children working on specific historical topics.
