Culture TrailsD where the past is melding with the future in fascinating ways Highlights include Aboriginal art in Australia's Northern Territory On a classical high in Vienna Confronting Soviet ghosts in Bulgaria Exploring a Latin American literary legacy Myths where old customs hold true and new ones are being forged; and where the past is melding with the future in fascinating ways Highlights include Aboriginal art in Australia's Northern Territory On a classical high in Vienna Confronting Soviet ghosts in Bulgaria Exploring a Latin American literary legacy Myths & legends of old Hong Kong Discovering Havana's music scene Copenhagen's design and urban environment Oxford's storytellers Ancient religion of Ethiopia Finnish sauna culture Picasso on the Riviera Walking in the footsteps of Vikings Rajasthan's open air art galleries Medici Florence Bob Marley regga To begin with this book is beautiful I love the format of a hardback without the dust jacket The pictures are glorious and each one is individually identified It is pretty enough to be a coffee table book but has actual content so it's truly usefulThere are 52 weekend trips identified but it should be noted that weekend is a very loose term as it's used here Many of the trips are two day trails but many are three to four days with some even stretching out to a full week Finnish Sauna Culture Each trip covers a specific geographical location with a particular cultural theme Classical music in Vienna Literature in Chile Vikings in Iceland for exampleFor each location there is a general introduction individual stops along with way with a description of each suggested length of trip along and the preferred mode of transportation places to stay where to eat and drink celebrations going on during the yearThis is the perfect book for the armchair traveler as it gives a great overview of interesting places around the world It would also serve as an excellent first step in planning the actual trips Due to the nature of travel I would feel the need to cross check information on lodging attractions etc as things can change so uickly that anything in print could actually be wrong before it's even published However with this book in hand and a travel guide such as Lonely Planet guides or Rick Steves books my two favorites you could plan a fabulous weekend excursion or use it as the basis of a much longer tripLoved it
