3. Destination Saigon Adventures in Vietnam (Large Print 16pt) - Walter Mason

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

From the crazy heat and colour of Saigon to the quieter splendour of Hanoi, Walter Mason gives us a rare, joyous and at times hilarious insight into twenty first century Vietnam. Seduced by the beauty and charm of its people, and the sensuousness of its culture, we can almost taste the little coconut cakes cooked over a fire in a smoky Can Tho kitchen, or smell the endless supplies of fresh baguettes and croissants just out of city ovens. As colourful city cafes and bars make way for visits to out of the way shrines and temples, we take an impromptu visit to forbidden fortune tellers, and glimpse a little of the Cao Dai religion, made famous in Graham Greene's The Quiet American. Escaping on impulse to a far flung province, a brief imprisonment culminates in an invitation to local wedding celebrations. Travelling off the beaten track to far flung villages and lesser known towns, we cruise along the Mekong, board hopelessly overcrowded local buses or perch perilously on the back of motorbikes. Behind the scenes visits to Buddhist monasteries reveal a quieter and more transcendent world beyond the busy day trips of tourists. And in the process we begin to see the country through the eyes of its people.

8. Go To Bath! A Kid's Guide To Bath, England - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £9.20  - Click book title for availability and further details

The city of Bath was first established by the Romans in 43 AD as a spa resort and was given the Latin name, Aquae Sulis, "the waters of Sulis." However, many believe Bath was known about before that. The Romans built baths and a temple on the surrounding hills of Bath in the valley of the River Avon around hot springs, the only natural hot springs in the United Kingdom. Edgar was crowned King of England at Bath Abbey in 973. Bath became very popular as a spa resort during the Georgian era. This led to major expansion of the city and left Bath with a rich heritage of Georgian architecture. Today, there is even more to Bath than the great Roman baths. There's ice-cream to eat, stores where you can shop and all sorts of musicians and things to see and hear. Use this book as a learning tool when you go to Bath, and see what you can add to this book. Take time to insert your own pictures of what you find inside and outside the Roman baths. You can get to Bath by train from London, rent a car to get there, or go on a sight seeing tour. Here is a secret. (Don?t tell anyone we told you.) You can even see Windsor Castle and Stonehenge on the way to bath (or from Bath) if you like. No professional photographs are allowed inside the baths, so this surprise also awaits your visit. This book was photographed by John D. Weigand, and written by award winning author, attorney and former teacher, Penelope Dyan in a way the youngest of kids can learn and understand. It is also a perfect complement to your mom?s coffee table!

12. Lookin' For Shamrocks! A Kid's Guide To Dublin, Ireland - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £9.20  - Click book title for availability and further details

Parents may enjoy going to the Guinness Brewery for a beer when they come to Dublin, Ireland; but kids see the world through different eyes. This book is not meant to be a true travel book in the sense of what one may view as a travel book. Instead, it is meant to inspire imaginations, to be added to with a kid's own notes, photos and drawings and to be used as a true learning tool,for even the youngest of travelers. Too many books spoon feed facts. Few encourage true mind exploration, and it is only with the exploring eye and the inquiring mind that a child can really truly learn. Take a trip to Dublin, Ireland and look at what Photographer John D. Weigand saw through the lens of his camera, and then take some photos of your own or gather photos from the internet or from magazines and travel brochures. You can even travel vicariously with Weigand and Dyan, if you like! Penelope Dyan has added a few words of poetic narrative to help get little minds moving and making up their very own narratives for their very own additions to this book. Dyan is an attorney, a former teacher, and a writer who knows just how to spark kids' imaginations and how to inspire them.

14. On The Rails---A Kid's Guide To Brenner Pass - Penelope Dyan

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £9.20  - Click book title for availability and further details

You can get very bored on a long train ride, but you won't get bored if you know what is ahead on the tracks. Brenner Pass is a beautiful place, and the exciting thing is that you can see it by train! If you want, you can even stop at one of the many train stations along the way and stretch your legs and talk a walk around one of the several lovely small towns. Brenner Pass is a feast for the eyes. Have your children count how many church steeples they see along the way, or how many small villages they see. Watch for hikers and take in the breath taking beauty. With photography by John D. Weigand and poetry by award winning author, Penelope Dyan, you can delight in the sights and impressions of these two travelers as you talk to your children about what happened along the pass. Brenner Pass served mule trains and carts until a road was opened in 1777. The railway, completed in 1867, is the only trans-alpine rail route with no major tunnel. At the end of World War I international borders shifted. Control of the area has shared between Italy and Austria ever since. During World War II, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini met there to celebrate their Pact of Steel on March 10, 1940. And Brenner Pass was a Nazi escape route after the collapse of Germany in 1945. The pass is beautiful to behold, and with or without its colorful history, the journey is fun and interesting. Travel the pass through the pages of this book, and pretend you can hear the sound of the rails going clickity clack, clickity clack as you trave along the railroad's track.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Revised and expanded for the 2010 Olympics. It's been said that Vancouver is a little superficial. Observers point to her great bones, pretty face, and fine outerwear of mountains, gardens, trees and water. But there's more to this Pacific coast city than good looks. Vancouver has character, warmth, brains and style - even some spunk. Consider funky, former - industrial Yaletown, where restaurants and tasting bars serve locally sourced and seasonal cuisine in an ultra - chic atmosphere, at prices so modest they'll shock the knowing American. Or visit the dramatic Museum of Anthropology, with its historic aboriginal totem poles still standing tall in the Great Hall. This revised and expanded edition of Secret Vancouver, just in time for the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, includes even more secret sites, restaurants, bars, patios, bookstores, yoga classes, and other off - the - beaten - path finds. Where can you get good wireless internet? Where can you relax with a drink and the best ocean views? Whether you are a long - time local or casual vacationer, let Secret Vancouver introduce you to the sights, sensations and stories you'd never think to look for.

A slow ramble through the French countryside perhaps, or a tramp along New Zealand's Milford Track, or maybe an indulgent luxury walk in Tasmania?

While focusing on a comfortable approach to walking on path rather than off track, staying in simple accommodation rather than camping, enjoying a glass of wine with dinner instead of purifying your drinking water Slow Journeys is generous in its whimsical considerations and observations of the joys of taking a long walk. It also offers practical information on the hurdles all walkers face, including preparing your itinerary, choosing kit, preventing blisters and mastering the intricacies of navigation.

20. Southeast Asia An Introductory History (Large Print 16pt) - Milton Osborne

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

While deepening our understanding of Southeast Asia, this fine introduction reminds us of the importance of history itself. ' - Anthony Milner, Basham Professor of Asian History, Australian National University 'Still one of the best short introductory histories to the region even after nine editions.' - Eric Tagliacozzo, Cornell University The first edition of Southeast Asia; An introductory history was published in 1979 and immediately filled a need for travellers and students interested in a tantalisingly different part of the world. Subsequent editions have continued to document with great perception the enormous changes and dramatic growth experienced in the region. Dr Milton Osborne has been a resident, student and fascinated observer of Southeast Asia for over 40 years. This familiarity has resulted in a highly readable and lively chronicle. While giving due regard to the early history of the region, Osborne concentrates on the changes that have taken place since the eighteenth century; the impact of colonial rule, economic transformations of the 19th and 20th centuries, the emergence and triumph of the independence movements, the impact of social change and the pivotal roles played by religion, ethnic minorities and immigrant groups. He also provides an introduction to the art of the region and a comprehensive guide to literature about Southeast Asia. Clearly written and extensively illustrated this tenth edition of Southeast Asia; An introductory history remains a classic in the field.
