Set along the cliffs between mountain and sea, Hermanus is one of the most popular holiday and travel destinations in South Africa. Initially it was the abundance of fish in Walker Bay, along which the village rapidly grew, that attracted holidaymakers. Today, the stars of the bay are undoubtedly the Southern Right Whales that migrate from Antarctica to mate and calve here during the winter months.
But it is not only the wonders of the sea that draw thousands of visitors to this picturesque village and surrounds year after year. Mountains, fynbos, culture, arts, crafts, country markets, adventure sports, scenic walks, golf courses, nature reserves, shark-cage diving, historical landmarks, and the vineyards and world-class wines of the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley are richly described and illustrated in this lavish volume. With chapters covering all aspects of the town’s diversity, the reader will learn more about all that is so generously on offer here, and also catch a rare glimpse of the heart that drives the town: the people and communities that have shaped this favoured destination.
A self-published edition of Hermanus appeared in 2010. Now republished as a new title the book features entirely rewritten text and fresh photographs throughout, many commissioned especially for this edition.

The French are "different." You'll often hear this in conversations among the "Anglo-Saxons," as the French like to call English-speakers. "Different" means charming, challenging, questioning, stylish, and doing things in their own way and to their own advantage. By looking at the attitudes and values of the French, and explaining how French life and business works, Culture Smart! France shows you how to fit in as a foreigner. It gives practical advice on how to avoid faux pas and how to behave in different contexts. It takes you through French history, festivals, and traditions, and describes the French at home and at work. Above all, it shows you how the French communicate, and how to get the best out of this idiosyncratic and brilliant people.

The University of Notre Dame's connection with Ireland has been
entrenched in Notre Dame's heritage and identity since the founding
of the university in 1842. The university is also closely
associated with Ireland through its renowned football team, the
Fighting Irish. When some thirty-five thousand Americans descended
on Dublin, Ireland, for the Emerald Isle Classic football game
between Notre Dame and Navy (played on September 1, 2012) at Aviva
Stadium, the relationship between Notre Dame and the land and its
people was celebrated throughout Dublin and the rest of Ireland.
Now both the allure of Ireland and the excitement of the Emerald
Isle Classic football game are brought together in "Notre Dame's
Happy Returns: Dublin, the Experience, the Game." Senior University
Photographer Matt Cashore took thousands of photographs for this
book, and has selected nearly two hundred of his favorite shots for
this large-format collection, capturing the sights, historic
places, and cultural riches that make Ireland special for fans of
the Fighting Irish. Woven together with brief cultural and
historical captions by Brian o Conchubhair and Susan Mullen
Guibert, "Notre Dame's Happy Returns" contains dozens of full-page
photographs of Ireland's capital city. Ranging from art and
architecture to spectacular views of Dublin Castle, Saint Patrick's
Cathedral, Trinity College, Casino Marino, Saint Stephen's Green,
shops, pubs, and other notable landmarks, the photographs capture
the mythical attraction of one of Europe's most vibrant cities and
offer readers a glimpse of its rich history. The photographs and
text also highlight the university's commitment to scholarship
through the Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies, Notre
Dame's Catholic tradition of service in Ireland, and the
extraordinary beauty of the countryside beyond Dublin. In addition,
the book explores the introduction of American football in Ireland
and Notre Dame's role in elevating the sport there, and contains a
special section on the 2012 Notre Dame-Navy game in Dublin. As
travel guide, sports book, and lush photographic essay all in one,
"Notre Dame's Happy Returns" is a must have for those who attended
the Notre Dame-Navy game in Aviva Stadium as well as for all Notre
Dame football fans. It will also be of interest to graduates,
subway alumni, members of the Notre Dame family, and university
supporters for whom Ireland is a spiritual and ancestral home.

This book depicts one of the most vibrant street cultures in theworld. The typical foods found in back alleys and open marketssimultaneously provide history lessons. History and geography are keyingredients to every dish in Sicily. Ignoring the history is like ignoringthe seasoning--you might as well not even try. Geography matters. Thestreet food changes from cities less than one hour from each other.Vivid descriptions of the towns and their specialties go hand in handwith what is being eaten, creating a sensational experience for you.Sicilian street food culture is unlike anything the world becauseSicilian cuisine is not Italian. The consumption of pasta may beequivalent, but Sicilians have had their food impacted by the Greeks, Arabs, Spanish, and Italians. This has resulted in layers of flavoringthat typically use salty and sweet together, sharp acidity, and spicesattributed to North Africa.Culturally, Sicilians do everything outside because the climatepermits it. People leave their houses in the morning and don't returnuntil late at night. It's a social culture, and more often than not, at leastone meal per day will consist of street food. It can be a pastry from apasticceria on the way to work in Messina or grilled intestine in Palermofor lunch. Oysters are shucked in open markets in Siracusa, and horsesandwiches are the late-night bite of choice for Catania. The street foodscene integrates seamlessly into everyday life.The writing turns into a love letter to Sicily at points. Even knowingthe island as well as I thought I did, I never saw it in the light that I didon that trip. Exposing some of the best kept secrets and everyday ritualsside by side, it is an all encompassing how-to guide for anyone whowants to experience one of the most ingrained parts of Sicilian lifestyle.I wrote this book in a personal matter. I shared childhood memoriesand recent experiences. It's written in the form of a travel journalbecause an objective and formal guide would not give the book the soulit deserves. I want readers to feel connected to me. I want to be therewith you and take you on a delicious adventure through Sicily.We will smell the jasmine that hangs heavy in the air of Taorminaat midnight. On a volcano, we will learn the difference between lardoand fat. For focaccia, we will go to the tallest town and eat it withunparalleled views. For memory's sake, I'll show you the port towns ofthe Palermo province. There, we can hang around the boats and getcheap sardines.Welcome, to Sicilian Streats.
