Description : Life is short. Take yourself to places you’ll never forget. We owe it to ourselves to see as much of this beautiful world as possible. This is for people that want to see ancient monuments, extraordinary scenery, endangered wildlife, inspiring cultures, architecture and art - places that give us the chance to grow and expand our horizons. Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die is the first title in an exciting international bestselling series of books that will help you search out essential sights and experiences around the world. International travel writer and photographer Steve Davey has drawn on his years of experience in selecting the most unmissable places to see. Some, such as the Taj Mahal and the Alhambra, are relatively well-known, but most, such as the amazing sand dunes of Dead Vlei in the Namib desert, are very much off the beaten track. All of them, though, can be visited in a holiday of two weeks or less. Beautifully illustrated with specially commissioned photographs, this is a book that will inspire you to think beyond the walls of your room and truly see the world around you.

Description : The world’s bestselling travel book is back in a more informative, more experiential, more budget-friendly full-color edition. A #1 New York Times bestseller, 1,000 Places reinvented the idea of travel book as both wish list and practical guide. As Newsweek wrote, it “tells you what’s beautiful, what’s fun, and what’s just unforgettable— everywhere on earth.” And now the best is better. There are 600 full-color photographs. Over 200 entirely new entries, including visits to 28 countries like Lebanon, Croatia, Estonia, and Nicaragua, that were not in the original edition.

Every entry from the original edition has been readdressed, rewritten, and made fuller, with more suggestions for places to stay, restaurants to visit, festivals to check out. And throughout, the book is more budget-conscious, starred restaurants and historic hotels such as the Ritz, but also moderately priced gems that don’t compromise on atmosphere or charm. The world is calling. Time to answer.

Description : "I cannot imagine a better guide to the transition between school and undergraduate geography than this short, informative and confidently-argued book. Written without fuss but based on solid learning and clear thinking, it tackles head-on a question many professional academic geographers would rather avoid." - Alisdair Rogers, University of Oxford "A beautiful little book that helps to introduce the core concepts of geography and provides an ideal framework for relating other fields of knowledge and academia." - Stefan Zimmermann, University of Osnabruck What is Geography? Geography is a fundamental fascination with, and a crucial method for, understanding the way the world works. This text offers readers a short and highly accessible account of the ideas and concepts constituting geography. Drawing out the key themes that define the subject, What is Geography? demonstrates how and why these themes - like environment and geopolitics- are of fundamental importance. Including discussion of both the human and the natural realms, the text looks at key themes like environment, space, and place - as well as geography's methods and the history of the discipline. Introductory but not simplified, What is Geography? will provide students with the ability to understand the history and context of the subject without any prior knowledge. Designed as a key transitional text for students entering undergraduate courses, this book will be of interest to all readers interested in and intrigued by the "geographical imagination".

Description : How do our everyday environments inform our activities, routines and encounters? In what way has globalization affected the sites in which we work, relax and interact? Is there still a place for local identity in a globalized age? This book examines the ways in which we use local spaces and global processes to shape our identities. Showing how enhanced tourism, communication developments and increased diversity have effected the way we live every day, the text also explains how individuals, communities and cities react to such globalizing forces on a local level. Each chapter unravels complex connections between place, identity and global processes, and carefully outlines what core theory can tell us about key contemporary debates, including surveillance, environmental change and sustainability. Taking examples from urban and rural life, shopping malls and virtual worlds, the book encourages us to look at our immediate surroundings in a sociological light. Highlighting the interdependence of space and society in a rapidly changing world, this text is essential reading for those studying place and identity in Sociology, Cultural Studies, Geography, Urban Studies and Rural Studies.

Description : Written by Jackie Beere, The Complete Learner's Toolkit: Metacognition and mindset - equipping the modern learner with the thinking, social and self-regulation skills to succeed at school and in life will empower teachers to transform their pupils' learning. Jackie Beere knows that schools have a much more important job to do than simply to prepare children for exams. In this book she hands busy teachers the tools they need to weave personal development into the curriculum in powerful and exciting ways. The Complete Learner's Toolkit focuses on the most important skills identified by the World Economic Forum - including critical thinking, emotional intelligence and judgement and decision making - and presents 36 lessons that can either be used as stand-alone sessions or be incorporated into a topic or subject context. Furthermore, they can be employed in whole-class lessons or when working with individuals/small groups who need extra support to become more independent, confident learners. Jackie has devised each lesson to develop the habits of reflection and metacognition in all learners, setting them up with the skills they will need in order to thrive and the emotional intelligence that will help them pursue a happy future. To make the most of the material in this book and create the best outcomes for students, Jackie suggests teachers also treat these lessons as personal CPD. Doing so can help embed in teachers' day-to-day practice the skills and mindsets which this book promotes, and so model them for their students. Teachers can also consider how best to adapt the lessons in this book and how to incorporate the World Economic Forum essential skills within their subject specialisms. Suitable for use with learners aged 7 to 16. The lesson plans in this book are available as editable PDFs sold under an annual licence. For more details contact [email protected] Parts of this book were previously published in The Learner's Toolkit, ISBN 978-184590070-0.

Description : This is the tale of many attempted entries into Burma to meet the people living life in political oppression. Unfortunately, the two visas that were granted came with limited timeframes. The first one barely allowed a whistle-stop tour of basic city centers, where we saw what they allowed us to see. Next up, a visit to the Three Parallel Rivers region of Yunnan Province, China, bordering North-East Burma. Scaled Jade Dragon Snow Mountain at 5,500 meters and descended Tiger Leaping Gorge, the deepest of its kind in the world, but Burma access denied. Made a deal to hitch-hike and navigate the mighty Mekong River from The Golden Triangle to the Vietnam Delta, with an acquired taste diet of garlic and diesel, plus a quick insight in following the footsteps of a want-to-be Siddhartha disciple. An extended second visa into the new Myanmar gave time necessary to discover and meet the underground organizations of Academic and Business Management schools and assist them with their foreign networking and correspondence. As usual, there is never a dull moment. A lot can happen when you decide to become an ex-pat, teach in a Thai school and buy a bar. And even stranger things can happen when you travel in countries where you have to play charades to order some dinner. This book is filled with funny stories, quirky people, and incredibly stupendous situations. This is the third book of the Road Diaries chronicles and it’s time to reassess where the hell I am at, and to consider decorating it with the stuff I have accumulated over the years.

This resource comprises an assortment of more than 70 lesson plans, each designed to motivate and inspire students and make the lesson go as smoothly and purposefully as possible.

Description : The ubiquity of computation in daily life has had decisive influence on the imaginative aspects of tourism. Online knowledge of the world is readily available through mapping services, social media, travel blogs, and online reviews. From booking and Googling, to posting and reminiscing: all stages of one’s trip can be guided and augmented by increasingly connective, personalized, and optimized algorithmic systems. In the face of this informational abundance, hypermediated tourism is fixated on access to authenticity. Peer to peer accommodation offers tourists a chance to "live like a local." Professional bloggers instruct not just on where, but on how to travel. Review websites aggregate the feedback of millions into "objective," data-driven authentication of destinations. And virtual technologies take users to places they could not dream of reaching physically. Based on a comparative ethnography of touristic blogs and vlogs, review websites, and video game environments, Scripted Journeys presents a critical analysis of touristic practice in digital ecologies. This hypermediated tourism engages technology as a harbinger of self-possession and waywardness, yet produces its own forms of digital dependence. The resulting "scripted journeys" internalize a tension between authenticity as autonomy and control, and the implicit compliance of making use of technological extensions.

Description : With no apparent sense of humour and their excessive speed when securing sunloungers, the German people and their country have had a terrible reputation among the British since time immemorial (or 1914). So, going where very few travel-writers and holidaymakers have gone before, Ben Donald has visited Germany in order to overturn stereotypes and, at the same time, fall back in love with travel. From the massed ranks on the nudist beaches of Germany's north coast (they have a reputation for liking uniform, but they'd much rather be naked), via intimate encounters in the steam-rooms of Baden-Baden and the brothels of Hamburg (where he makes his excuses and leaves), to the rite of passage that is wearing Lederhosen to the Oktoberfest (which takes place in September), the author has put his body and his dignity on the line to get beneath the skin of this most maligned of countries. He even goes to see a German stand-up comedian. In - where else? - England. And what emerges is a Germany that will surprise many who thought they knew the country and its people; an eye-opener in other words - especially those nudist beaches.

Description : Thousands of festivals take place around the world every year. Some have cult followings with tickets that sell out instantly–forty thousand Burning Man tickets sold out in a manner of minutes—some are thrown in little-known faraway places—cities in Benin or San Marino. In this unique volume, Steve Davey, author of the 300,000+ selling book Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die, has created the ultimate, unparalleled book on the subject, showcasing a whopping 500 festivals in 121 countries—far and away more than any other book of its kind. To make it, he traveled the world, comprehensively researched its most dynamic events, and carefully selected the festivals with the most extraordinary highs, a life-affirming buzz. The result is scene-setting descriptions and 270 complementary jaw-dropping photographs—colorful images on every page. It’s an energetic celebration of events from Carnival in Rio to the Full Moon Party in Thailand, from the most brilliant Day of the Dead celebrations to the gooiest food fights, the most over-the-top costumes to the most daring displays of bravado. For ease of reference, the festivals are organized by continent, by region, then alphabetically by country. With dates and locations, they’re made accessible to those looking to enhance upcoming trips and those looking for their next big adventure. The compilation is also an instant thrill for the armchair traveler—immediate access to the world’s most joyful events. Around the World in 500 Festivals was published in a limited print-run in 2013. It’s now being given a comprehensive update and new packaging—a thrilling new offering for readers looking to experience new places and cultures when they’re most alive.
