AN ENGLISH INVENTION: GRAND-TOUR, TOURISM, MOBILITY AND NORSE MYTHOLOGY

Maximiliano E. Korstanje (CV)

Abstract
Although a great variety of papers focused on the grand tour and tourism as a legacy of Roman Empire, there is interesting evidence that contrasts this hypothesis. Certainly, the archetype of Odin who wandered through the world in view of new customs and reigns was the prerequisite for the creation of Grand Tour. There is no surprise that Grand Tour has surfaced in England. What today we argue in this short paper is tourism as we know today resulted from Norse Mythology.

Key Words: Ancient History, Norse Mythology, Travelling God, Odin, Grand Tour.
