The heritage walks take place in four locations throughout the week. The walks will be led by inspiring local heritage guides who will share their passion for local history.  As part of the tour you will get a sneak preview of pieces from the Imagine Trail App.

In the summer of 1955, Alfred and Jakobine were crazy for adventure and each other. They married as impetuously as they decided to drive around the world in a beat up London taxicab. Their love, like their trip, was defined by passion, brushes with death and even stardom. Jakobine was certain they’d last forever—but without warning, Alfred left, breaking her heart.

Forty years later, their son Niels takes up their story when, at 84, Alfred decides to restore that old wreck of a car and head across America to see Jakobine one more time.
