  • Supriya Sehgal 111 Places in Rajasthan That You Must Not Miss

    Englische Originalausgabe

    The forbidding landscape of insipid browns and impregnable fortresses is often the most prevalent image visitors take away from the desert state of Rajasthan. But while these breathtaking palaces are the enduring legacy of the Rajput royals, the real soul of Rajasthan is best glimpsed off the beaten path, where amusing stories, eccentric traditions, unusual encounters, and elusive relics await your discovery. 111 Places in Rajasthan leads you beyond the veil of famous legends, monuments, shopping destinations, and culinary pleasures, to the state’s most unexpected and often outlandish locales. Watch wild deer roam the homes of tribal groups; make an offering of whiskey at a motorcycle shrine; meet a tigon – a half lion, half tiger; or become the subject of a comedic roast by an expletive-ridden folk theatre troupe. Explore the hidden treasures of Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur, and experience what makes Rajasthan one of the most exotic and exciting regions in the world.

     

    Eine raue Landschaft und unüberwindbare Festungen – so sehen viele Besucher Rajasthan. Mit diesem Buch blicken Sie in die wahre Seele dieser Gegend. Entdecken Sie amüsante Geschichten, außergewöhnliche Rituale und kulinarische Genüsse fernab der Touristenpfade.

Dieses Buch lüftet den Schleier, der die Legenden, Denkmäler und Schauplätze des Landes umhüllt. Lernen Sie Jaipur, Jodhpur und Udaipur neu kennen und erleben Sie, was den Wüstenstaat zu einer der exotischsten und spannendsten Regionen der Welt macht.

  • Kathleen Becker 111 Places in Lisbon That You Shouldn't Miss

    Travel Guide

    Lisbon, Lisboa … the Portuguese capital stands for colourful tiles and architectural contrasts, the most sunshine hours in Europe and a very special light, for stockfish tascas and cafés, for traditional shops next to postmodern shopping centres.

Today the city is booming again like no other time since the days of the great voyages of discovery. Foreign investors are buying into it, facades are being surrounded by scaffolding. The goldmine of tourism has created a new international flair, brought jobs and attracted film teams, scrubbing away at the morbid charm of urban decay. Lisbon’s lively cultural life now includes a young blossoming street art scene; it is a city with rather reserved, friendly people and an unflustered multicultural identity.

  • Ed Lefkowicz, John Major 111 Places in Brooklyn That You Must Not Miss

    Travel Guide

    It doesn’t take a passport to visit Brooklyn, as some Manhattanites might lead you to believe. Still, Brooklyn can feel a world away. And that’s precisely what locals loveabout it.

But what outsiders might be surprised to learn is that Brooklyn is less an undifferentiated mass than a collection of neighborhoods, each with its own distinctive character and history. From Bay Ridge, Bed-Stuy and Bergen Beach to Weeksville, Williamsburg and Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn is a patchwork quilt of communities stitched together with mismatched threads from nearly everywhere in
    the world. Celebrating its in-your-face diversity, but continuallychurning those differences into something fresh and unique, Brooklyn embodies a hip and cool version of the American experiment. E pluribus unum– from many comes one. Here are 111 places to start your explorations.

  • Alexia Amvrazi, Diana Farr Louis, Diane Shugart, Yannis Varouhakis 111 Places in Athens That You Shouldn't Miss

    Travel Guide

    Athens can be noisy and crowded and confusing, but it’s spontaneous and always surprising. A cable ride up Lykavittos rewards with an incredible panorama but veer off the track to discover the hill’s secret links to Parnitha. The beauty of Kaisariani Monastery’s architecture is matched by the ‘organised wilderness’ of its incredible gardens. Ancient relics, great and small, mirror a glorious past that remains an example to the world, but they are only the start of what’s great about Athens today. There are the mountains that surround it, busy with climbers, runners and picnic-lovers during the weekends. The ubiquitous graffiti, some admirable, some abhorrent, that reveal what’s bugging the Athenians’ psyche. Bars, cafés and restaurants thronged with broke Greeks who refuse to stay inside. Stores where you can find vendors as venerable as their antiques and others that are up to date with the edgiest demands. And many surprising, sometimes downright dark, dank and mysterious pockets. Athens is changing day by day. This book will take you to places that are beyond touristy or trendy; whether hundreds of years old or contemporary, their tales are timeless.
