Dear wonderful Readers;
Days like this lead to endless hours at home, time for books, time to read and to prepare our next journeys.
I recommend the new edition of HOTEL METROPOLE HANOI.
The first copies of THE HALF MOON TREASURY are being released – exclusively to our readers (and before its official launching date).
We have released a reprint of our successful book THE WESTIN EXCLESIOR ROME, the most famous hotel on Via Veneto.
The new edition of THE STRAND (Yangon,Myanmar) receives wonderful readers' feedback — thank you for your notes and mails.
There is a hotel in Seefeld, Tyrol, Austria, which stands for all the fables and legends this little olympic village has to tell. It is called ASTORIA, and run by legendary hotelier Elisabeth Gürtler. Our new book SEEFELDER MINIATUREN - ASTORIA - A STORY - A LEGEND is available now – in this store. It is in German, only (for the time being).
Upon request, we dispatch all our books personally autographed (as you know).
Have a save journey!
