Seeing the world and experiencing different cultures is why we travel, but how are we supposed to narrow down all of the extraordinary experiences the cities of the world have to offer? For those overwhelmed by the possibilities—or for those who think they've seen it all—this collection of "52 perfect weekends for culture lovers"
is a terrific travel guide for globetrotters… especially those without unlimited time! From a tour of Ned Kelly's Bushranger Trail in southeastern Australia and an exploration of the dance-centric martial art capoeira in Brazil, to a study of Taiwanese folklore and a blues-soaked pilgrimage through America's Deep South, Culture Trails
comes complete with concise itineraries, lodging and dining recommendations, and even listings for festivals and celebrations of interest. And for those whose peripatetic ways are behind them, an armchair journey through these colorfully illustrated pages serves as a wonderful "virtual" vacation. Bon voyage! (KG)
