TRAVEL BOOKS WITH A SENSE OF PLACE
Announcing the first five volumes in our series A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Characters™ : Impressions of Hong Kong and Macau, Impressions of Sydney, Impressions of Sydney and Melbourne, Impressions of the Pacific Northwest and Impressions of New Zealand’s South Island.
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 markets lining the city’s narrow streets for a glimpse at everyday life. 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.
Impressions of Hong Kong and Macau will help you understand what these fascinating cities are really like even before you leave home.
Want to know what these 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. In her honest and thorough book review, The Uncorked Librarian calls it, “A sincere Sydney and Melbourne travel guide unlike any other.”
Explore Sydney's incredible waterfront, soaking in her history and passion for the water. Walk through the breathtaking Blue Mountains. Enjoy Melbourne's world-class restaurants and cultural areas. Then take a drive to see Brighton and the spectacular Great Ocean Road. This is one trip you won't forget.
Just for fun, we created a mini e-book about our own corner of the world. Impressions of the Pacific Northwest offers a glimpse into the incredible beauty of the cities, coast and mountains in this extraordinary region.
Because this is a small book with just over a dozen stories, it’s only available as an e-book. This is the only one in our series that’s exclusively found on Amazon’s Kindle store. All of our other books may be purchased from multiple online retailers.
New Zealand’s one place you’ll want to savor, one island at a time. That’s why this book includes 54 enlightening and entertaining impressions just about the South Island. Soak up Queenstown’s scenery and adventure sports. Give into the Otago region’s temptations of wines and gold panning. Travel to Te Anau for an up-close look at the amazing Fiordland National Park. Experience the warmth of sunny Nelson. Then set sail or tramp through Abel Tasman National Park, the Tasman District and the picture postcard Marlborough Sounds.
Impressions of New Zealand’s South Island will “take you” to this special place filled with jaw-dropping scenery, warm hospitality and endless adventures.
