Following Karen Blixen into Africa

If you are one of the filmgoers who would like to have the experience of walking in the footsteps of Karen Blixen, the author of ``Out of Africa,'' this trip might just be for you. Plantagenet Tours is offering a tour based on Blixen's autobiography, which will feature Copenhagen and other Danish localities where Blixen lived, continuing on to sites in Kenya to see her home and the territory about which she wrote. The Karen Blixen Tour to Denmark and Africa will be held between Jan. 6 and 27, 1989.

Plantagenet's premise in planning trips is that ``the interest of a travel experience is the result not of what is objectively experienced, but rather of the context in which it is experienced.'' Hence, they take travelers into various well-known destinations and make the experience new by showing the area in a specific context of experiences of the past in art or history.
