BOOKS WITH A SENSE OF PLACE
Announcing the first three volumes in our series A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Characters™: Impressions of Hong Kong and Macau, Impressions of Sydney and Impressions of Sydney and Melbourne. We've put a unique stamp on our personal experiences by giving a modern twist to the familiar phrase, "A picture is worth a thousand words." Each story is just 1,000 characters long and features an original photograph.
Whether you plan to visit these corners of the world or simply experience them vicariously, our books provide what few travel books do. They give you a real sense of place.
Come along on a visual storytelling journey to one of the world’s most beautiful cities and find out what it’s really like even before you book your ticket.
The iconic Opera House is a marvelous place to start, but there’s much more to Sydney than that. Explore the seemingly endless waterfront to discover the city’s maritime roots and love of anything that floats. Plunge into one of Sydney’s idyllic bays, coves or nearby seawater pools. Take a stroll along the vibrant Circular Quay and central business district or an easy day hike overlooking the sapphire waters of the Pacific Ocean just minutes from downtown. Sydney offers an adventure and cultural experience for everyone.
Immerse yourself in Hong Kong’s 24/7 lifestyle where people and vehicles are seemingly impatient to be anywhere but where they are. Escape into the exotic flower, bird, goldfish and “wet” markets lining the city’s narrow streets for a glimpse at everyday life for Hong Kongers. Explore Macau on foot to wander through her stunning mosaic plazas and alleyways to sights where tourists gasp on hilly streets that rival San Francisco’s. And ride the ferry back in time to the auto-free fishing village of Cheung Chau where many of the harbor’s colorful boats display a day’s catch sun drying on racks and nets.
With so much to see and do in these fascinating cities, Impressions of Hong Kong and Macau will help you understand what they’re really like even before you leave home.
Want to know what two of Australia’s most exciting cities are like even before you set foot in the Land Down Under? Impressions of Sydney and Melbourne takes you there. It includes all of the marvelous stories found in Impressions of Sydney, plus 21 more spotlighting Melbourne. Virtually come along with us to these welcoming cities and the stunning scenery around them.
Explore Sydney's incredible waterfront, while soaking in her history and passion for the water. Walk through the breathtaking Blue Mountains. Dine your way through Melbourne's world-class restaurants and cultural areas. Then take a drive to see the colorful beachside town of Brighton and the spectacular Great Ocean Road. This is one trip you won't forget.
