Get inspired and plan your next trip with Fodor’s ebook travel guide to the Greek Islands and the Best of Athens. Intelligent Planning: Discover all of the essential, up-to-date travel insights you expect in a Fodor’s guide, including Fodor’s Choice dining and lodging, top experiences and attractions, and detailed planning advice. Easy Navigation for E-Readers: Whether you’re reading this ebook from start to finish or jumping from chapter to chapter as you develop your itinerary, Fodor’s makes it easy to find the information you need with a single touch. In addition to a traditional main table of contents for the ebook, each chapter opens with its own table of contents, making it easy to browse. Full-Color Photos and Maps: It’s hard not to fall in love with the Greek Islands as you flip through a vivid full-color photo album. Explore the layout of city centers and popular neighborhoods with easy-to-read full-color maps. Plus get an overview of Greek geography with the convenient atlas at the end of the ebook. What’s Covered? Get to Know the Greek Islands: When Athenians want a break, they often make a quick crossing to the idyllic islands of the Saronic Gulf. Car-free Hydra is a relaxing retreat with stone houses set above a gorgeously festive harbor. Aegina is noted for its medieval Old Town and magnificent Temple of Aphaia. Spetses has a time-burnished town hiding treasures like Bouboulina’s House. To the northeast, the Northern Sporades delivers quintessential Greek-island pleasures: villages spilling down hillsides like giant sugar cubes, Byzantine monasteries, and ageless paths, where the tinkle of goat bells may be the only sound for miles. Off the west coast of the Greek mainland lies Corfu, a temperate multihued island with emerald mountains and turquoise waters. The island has an equally colorful history, reflecting the commingling of Corinthians, Romans, Goths, Normans, and Venetians, among others. The Cyclades are the ultimate Mediterranean archipelago. Santorini is the most picturesque. Mykonos takes the prize for hedonism. Mountainous Folegandros, verdant Naxos, idyllic Sifnos, and church-studded Tinos all have distinct charms. Crete is Greece’s southernmost and largest island. The island is home to some of Greece’s tallest mountains, its deepest gorge, many of its best beaches, and a wealth of Venetian and Byzantine wonders. The Dodecanese (Twelve Islands) are the easternmost holdings of Greece and are set around the shores of Turkey and Asia Minor. Each of the green and gold Northern Aegean Islands is distinct: Chios retains an eerie beauty amid its fortified villages and Byzantine monasteries, Lesbos is a forgetaway favored by artists and writers, and lush, mountainous Samos whispers of antiquity. Most travelers to the Greek Islands make at least a stopover in Athens. Greece’s capital is a city of tried and true pleasures: the endless parade of cafés, the charming Plaka district, and most of all, the glorious remnants of one of the greatest civilizations the West has produced. Note: This ebook edition is adapted from Fodor’s Greek Islands, 2nd Edition but differs in some content. Additionally, the ebook edition includes photographs and maps that will appear on black-and-white devices but are optimized for devices that support full-color images

A Fortune Teller Told Me

Author: Tiziano Terzani
Publisher: Crown
ISBN: 9780307565730
Release Date: 2010-02-17
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Warned by a Hong Kong fortune-teller not to risk flying for a whole year, Tiziano Terzani — a vastly experienced Asia correspondent — took what he called “the first step into an unknown world. . . . It turned out to be one of the most extraordinary years I have ever spent: I was marked for death, and instead I was reborn.” Traveling by foot, boat, bus, car, and train, he visited Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Mongolia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Geography expanded under his feet. He consulted soothsayers, sorcerers, and shamans and received much advice — some wise, some otherwise — about his future. With time to think, he learned to understand, respect, and fear for older ways of life and beliefs now threatened by the crasser forms of Western modernity. He rediscovered a place he had been reporting on for decades. And it reinvigorated him. The result is an immensely engaging, insightful, and idiosyncratic journey, filled with unexpected delights and strange encounters. A bestseller and major prizewinner in Italy, A Fortune-Teller Told Me is a powerful warning against the new missionaries of materialism. From the Hardcover edition.
