Once you are there, magic happens. Seriously, you just have to take a look at the castles and that scent from the past will come alive - beside you, here, in present. I wish I was borned sometime around 1800, in a small town in England, where nature met peace. It's the life that I will never have, but the life I lived, somehow, through novels like Wuthering Heights - my all time favourite book- or Sense and Sensibility. I recommend them, especially the first one, to every soul that dares to fly.
"Oh, you said you care nothing for my sufferings! And I pray one prayer—I repeat it till my tongue stiffens—Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living! You said I killed you—haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers, I believe. I know that ghosts have wandered on earth. Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!" (Heathcliff) Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
