Paris To The Moon - A Family In France, Adam Copnik

Vintage 237961 London 2001 0099772019 / 9780099772019 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket In 1995, Adam Gopnik, his wife, and their infant son left the familiar comforts and hassles of New York for the urbane glamour of Paris. Charmed by the beauties of the city, Gopnik set out to experience for himself the spirit and romance that has so captivated American writers throughout the twentieth century. In the grand tradition of Stein and Hemingway, Gopnik planned to walk the paths of the Tuilleries, to enjoy philosophical discussion in cafes - in short, to lead the fabled life of an American in Paris. Of course, there was also the matter of raising a child and carrying on with everyday, not-so-fabled life. 338 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman, Alice Steinbach
8 Alice Steinbach Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman
Bantam Books 238179 Australia 2000 1863253769 / 9781863253765 Softcover Very Good Condition Without Reservations is about a woman's dream come true - taking a year off to travel the world and rediscover what it is like to be an independent woman, without ties and without reservations. 'In many ways, I was an independent woman,' writes Alice Steinbach, single working mother and Pulitzer prize-winnning journalist. 'For years I'd made my own choices, paid my own bills, shovelled my own snow, and had relationships that allowed for a lot of freedom on both sides.' Slowly, however, she saw that she had become quite dependent in another way. 'I had fallen into the habit of defining myself in terms of who I was to other people and what they expected of me.' Who am I, she wanted to know, away from the things that define me - my family, children, job, friends? Steinbach searches for the answer in some of the most exciting places in the world- Paris, where she finds a soulmate in a Japanese man; Oxford, where she learns more from a ballroom dancing lesson than any of her studies; Milan, where she befriends a young woman about to be married. Beautifully illustrated with postcards Steinbach wrote home to herself, this is an unforgettable voyage of discovery 278 pages. Black and white illustrations. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Travel; Travel & Places; Autobiography::Memoir. ISBN: 1863253769. ISBN/EAN: 9781863253765. Inventory No: 238179. Paperback

New Holland 240825 Australia 2004 1741101522 / 9781741101522 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition We walk up to the castle, an 18th century thing that is now just neglected ruins. We scamble around but it is obvious from the pungent odour and stains on the crumbling old walls that several hundred men have used this as a convenient place to take a pee. Still it has fabulous views out over the blue sea and we stay there for as long as we can stand the smell, admiring the scene. Ann Rickard has the writing and travel bug. After her first book Not Another Book About Italy she returned to her life and job in Noosa but it wasn't long before she found another reason to travel, this time to Greece. Her witty observations of Greeks and their way of life, the descriptions of another divine location with yet another Greek salad, fried fish, bottle of wine and a beer for Geoffrey, keeps the reader thoroughly entertained. Ann and her husband criss-cross Greece, island hopping and enjoying those lovely little restaurants perched high on the terraced hills, beckoning us inside with blackboard offerings "lobster alive today" and home made dishes, visiting historical locations and enjoying life. Greece - Just Wonderful dishes up the travel recipe that keeps the reader coming back for more. 239 pages. Light tanning to page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
