Good beaches with soul-warming sun, crystal-clear waters, and fragrant sea air can be found on virtually every island of the Caribbean, with the possible exceptions of Saba (which has rocky shores) and Dominica (where the few beaches have dramatically black sands that absorb the hot sun).

Golden beaches shaded by palm trees and crystalline waters teeming with colorful tropical fish – it’s all just a few hours’ flight from the East Coast of the United States. Dubbed the “Eighth Continent of the World,” the Caribbean islands have an amazing variety of terrain that ranges from thick rainforests to haunting volcanoes, from white- to black-sand beaches. Spicy food, spicier music, and a gentle, leisurely lifestyle draw millions of visitors each year, all of whom are searching for that perfect place in the sun.

Published by Wiley Publishing Inc. | Publication date : June 2007 | ISBN : 0470120096 | PDF | 673 pages | English | 7.5 MB

To the Western visitor, Southeast Asia is an assault on the senses, an immersion into a way of life utterly unlike that to which we’re accustomed. From bustling cities like Bangkok, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur to tiny fishing villages and thatched rural hamlets, from the jungles of Malaysian Borneo to the deluxe resorts of Bali, from the temples of Luang Prabang in Laos to the bacchanal of Patpong in Thailand, Southeast Asia offers a glimpse of the extraordinary, an explosion of colors, sounds, smells, textures, and life that will send you home with a wider vision of the human experience.

Edible Mushrooms, 2nd Edition

Edible Mushrooms, 2nd Edition

Clyde M. Christensen "Edible Mushrooms, 2nd Edition"
Published by University of Minnesota Press | Publication date : June 1981 | ISBN : 0816610495 | PDF | 139 pages | English | 5.24 MB

Mushrooms have long been regarded all over the world as the most delectable and succulent of foods. Their peculiarly delicate flavor charmed the luxury-loving Roman aristocrats more than twenty centuries ago, as it charms people today. But most of us do not realize that the mushrooms we buy at the grocery store, either fresh or in cans, represent only one of the many edible kinds and that countless others make equally delightful eating. For edible mushrooms are to be found everywhere – in front yards, on shade trees, in parks, fields, and forests.

All too often these evanescent plants are looked upon as strange, unearthly things, to be feared and avoided, if not trodden upon and destroyed. Yet many of these same mushrooms that spring up in such prodigal abundance are both savory and delicious, eagerly sought by the epicure but to be had by anyone for the mere fun of hunting and picking them. To those who do not know them, the best are made to share the reputation of the worst, and all are grouped together under the darkly suggestive name of toadstools, malevolent things that smack of night and thunder and pouring rain, fit company for goblins and witches!

Published by Wiley Publishing, Inc. | Publication date : February 2007 | ISBN : 0470068604 | PDF | 323 pages | English | 5.02 MB

Frommer's Amsterdam (14th Edition) is the only guide you'll need to plan the perfect trip to this vibrant, attractive city. Amsterdam is far more complex than its dated reputation as a hippie haven suggests, and we give you the best of both worlds, from the Red Light District to the Van Gogh Museum, from "smoking coffeeshops" to an evening at the Concertgebouw. It's all gezellig to Amsterdammers. Frommer's Amsterdam gives you insider tips on the best museums, big and small; the best antique shops in the Spiegelgracht quarter; the best restaurants for French, modern Dutch, or the Indonesian feast rijsttafel walking tours and biking tours along the Golden Age Canal and the Amstel River; plus information for side trips to Rotterdam, The Hague, Gouda, and other cities.

Published by Wiley Publishing, Inc. | Publication date : September 2007 | ISBN : 0470145668 | PDF | 259 pages | English | 5.64 MB

Frankly, Bermuda is predictable, and its regular visitors wouldn’t have it any other way. The tiny island chain has attracted vacationers for decades, and there aren’t many secrets left to uncover. But those sandy pink beaches remain just as inviting as ever, no matter how many times you return.
Even some diehard fans compare Bermuda to certain beauty queens, beautiful but dull. We prefer to think of it as “tranquil.” If you’re looking for exotic local color or sizzling rum and reggae-filled nights, look farther south to the Caribbean. But if you need to escape the stress and strain of daily life, go to Bermuda.

Discovering the City of Light and making it your own has always been the most compelling reason to visit Paris. If you’re a first-timer, everything, of course, will be new to you. If you’ve been away for awhile, expect changes: Taxi drivers may no longer correct your fractured French, but address you in English tantamount to a revolution. More Parisians have a rudimentary knowledge of the language, and France, at least at first glance, seems less xenophobic than in past years. Paris, aware of its role within a united Europe, is an international city. Parisians are attracted to foreign music, videos, and films, especially those from America, even though most French people vehemently disagree with the political dictates emerging from George Bush’s Washington.

Former stamping grounds of some of history’s most famous seafarers, the Virgin Islands are now invaded by thousands of visitors who arrive daily by cruise ship and plane from Miami and Puerto Rico. These green, hilly islands, some governed by the United States and some by Great Britain, number about 100 in all. Most are tiny and virtually uninhabited, except for a few birds or an adventurous boating party stopping off for a little snorkeling or swimming. For the ultimate tropical getaway, it’s possible to rent an entire island for yourself.

Maui, also called the Valley Isle, is just a small dot in the vast Pacific Ocean, but it has the potential to offer visitors unforgettable experiences: floating weightless through rainbows of tropical fish, standing atop a 10,000-foot volcano watching the sunrise color the sky, and listening to the raindrops in a bamboo forest.

Las Vegas is a true original; there is nothing else like it in the world. In other cities, hotels are built near the major attractions. Here, the hotels are the major attractions. What other city has a skyline made up of buildings from other cities’ skylines?

Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America, but tourists are only now beginning to discover it.

Central America s largest lake, Lago de Nicaragua, is here and Granada, the oldest Spanish city in the continental Americas, with the earliest colonial buildings. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the west and the Caribbean Sea on the east. The Pacific Lowlands region, which includes the cities of Managua, Granada, and San Juan del Sur, is the most-visited area of the country.

There aren't many places in the world you can ski and then hit the beach afterwards for a refreshing dip; see Greek, Roman, Etruscan, medieval and Arabic architecture all in the same town; and meet some of the friendliest people in the world. The richness in culture is demonstrated in the theater, cinema and art found everywhere.
The coastal towns, the Mafia, the wines and foods, the astonishing history - all are explored in this guidebook. Included are the Tyrrhenian coast, which runs the length of Sicily's northern shore; the Aeolian Islands, with their steaming volcanoes, mud baths, crystal-clear waters and beaches; the Ionian coast, with its stunning sea views, woodlands, spectacular gorges and numerous old towns.

Kaua`i is one of the most beautiful places on earth.

It really is unforgettable.
From the moment you step off the plane, you’ll notice that you’re in a unique place, and it will captivate you.

Even though it’s only about 100 miles from Honolulu, Kaua`I is literally a world away from the up-tempo city life.
