Weinig mense spit diep in hulle spaargeld in, sluit hulle huis en klim vir drie maande van afsondering op ’n kanaalboot in die verre Engeland. Op hul eie. Sonder ervaring. Sonder ’n bootliksens. Sonder die voorwete dat alles goed sal afloop.
Annelie en die ou gryse het besluit om die kanaalpad te vat en reg in die snerpende winter in te vaar. Om te toets wat hulle ná vier-en-veertig jaar van saamwees in mekaar oorhet. Om te besin oor die roete van die allerlaaste vyftien sterkerige jare wat dálk voorlê. Om herinneringe te vergaar vir die stil dae op die ouetehuisstoep. En om mekaar vergifnis te gee vir sovele sondes. Min sou hulle kon voorsien dat die reis van hosannas ook ’n reis van tappende ontberings en rasperende emosies sou wees. En dat hulle meer as een maal die boot wou verlaat en die kinders bel om hulle te kom haal.
Maar tot op die een-en-neëntigste dag het hulle vasgehou aan die idille. En aan mekaar.

1926. Gas is 17 a gallon. Haircuts are 25 cents. And U.S. Route 66--two thousand miles of road and concrete--connects Chicago with Los Angeles, making long-distance travel a reality for millions of Americans.
Often called America's Main Street, this famous highway played a key role in the development of U.S. industry and commerce. It offered the prospect of a better life in the West for families trapped in rural poverty along its path. And, by the early 1940s, it was a lifeline in the U.S. war effort. Route 66 quickly became part of the American Dream, generating its own myths and romance and inspiring scores of novelists, poets, artists, moviemakers, and songwriters to weave its image into their work.
This compact book follows the path of the Mother Road, reveals its importance, and captures its special magic. More than 240 full-color illustrations reveal the unique culture along the road, from neon signs and historic landmarks to favorite cars and recipes popular along the highway.
""Don't be fooled by this small package--within its pages is a colorful, illustrated history of the fabled road and its landmarks.""--Paul Taylor, from the Introduction

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.

Greenwich is the one London district whose name resonates around the world. As 'the place where time began', everyone has heard of it, so naturally everyone wants to come here when they visit the capital. With a memorable and picturesque Thames-side location, its maritime history means that there's more to see here per square foot than any other outer London neighborhood, and this new guide tells you how to do it. 111 Places not only tracks down the most interesting nuggets among Greenwich's mainstream sights, from the Cutty Sark to the Meridian Line, it also lifts the lid on the area's lesser-known attractions - from haunted Jacobean houses and mudlarking in Deptford Creek to classic pie and mash shops and famous riverside pubs. It explores beyond the confines of Greenwich town centre, turning up treasures like Henry VIII's favorite residence, Eltham Palace - now an Art Deco gem - and nearby engineering feats like the Thames Barrier. You could come to London and spend half your time in Greenwich, and we wouldn't blame you if you did. This book tells you how to make the most of London's maritime borough.

To reach Machu Picchu one must first navigate a path over the Andes Mountains, instead of hiking I chose to ride across by horse. As a novice rider every day was special, a real adventure and one that I shall never forget. Along the way I stayed in purpose built lodges, had a dip in a glacial lake, received a blessing from a Shaman and ate guinea pig for lunch. Later I managed to survive: a car crash, hotel eviction, a terrifying flight over the Nazca Lines and a severe bout of food poisoning. Life is seldom dull when I am on my travels.
The city is a rich tapestry, home to native Coventrians and newcomers of every nationality and ethnicity. But behind the modernity, Coventry's storied past lives on in its architecture and artworks, its visionary centre and outlying council estates. This book reveals some of its hard-to-find origins as a city with a major medieval influence, and the relics of its industrial boom as a centre for making cloth and clocks, cars and bikes. But it was manufacturing munitions that made it a target for the German Luftwaffe in WWII, flattening its medieval heart, and prompting the distinctive look and feel of its centre and surrounds today. It details everything from a quirky homage to 11th-century Lady Godiva, to the remnants of the walled city of the English Civil War that spawned the phrase 'sent to Coventry'. From the remnants of the ruined cathedral to the boho Fargo village, from the origins of the influential Two-Tone music style born here, to the impact of UK City of Culture 2021 status, it's all uncovered inside. This unusual guidebook invites the inquisitive to head off the beaten track and explore many of the city's lesser-known places.
