The Romantische Straße (Romantic Road) is the most popular of Germany´s roughly 150 vacation routes. It connects several romantic sights along a 210-mile route from Wurzburg on the Main to Fussen at the foot of the Alps. En route, it passes romantic towns, hamlets, castles, and churches. Rothenburg ob der Tauber and Schloss Neuschwanstein are the two most popular sights on the route. The Bavarian Alps are astonishingly beautiful. The Alps suddenly rise out of green meadows, making any approach from Munich or the north spectacular. The mountains are easily reached from Munich by road or rail and are popular for day-trips. In addition to the mountains, the area teams with history, interesting buildings, lakes, rivers, and countless hiking and cycling opportunities. Many ski resorts are popular with families. Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Oberammergau, Berchtesgaden, Chiemsee, Konigssee - these are just a few of the unforgettable places to visit here. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adrienne Ellis.

Picture rolling hills, with long rows of vineyards trailing off into the distance. Imagine the early morning sun filtering through a low veil of mist. Think of historic stone buildings perched on hillsides overlooking the valley below, and you can form a picture of Wine Country. No matter where you´re visiting from, Wine Country has the ability to transport you, for however long you´re staying, to a bucolic world, where exceptional wine flows freely and world-class cuisine is the expected norm. It´s almost impossible not to relax and unwind here. Even if you don´t come for the wine and the food, Wine Country has something to offer almost every visitor. If you´re an outdoor-type, you´ll find beautiful state parks for hiking, biking, and nature watching, or you can take to the water and paddle your way down scenic rivers. If history is more your thing, you´ll know that the region played an important role in the history of California, and you´ll find several historic sites to visit. And if you just want to relax and indulge in some personal spoiling, Wine Country has spas, luxury hotels, limousine tours, and boutique shopping. More than a dozen counties throughout California produce wine, but the North Coast region is by far the best-known. Four counties make up this region: Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Lake. Of these, Napa - or more accurately, the Napa Valley - is the most famous. Consequently, it´s the busiest and most commercialized of the regions, but it shouldn´t be missed. It´s a relatively compact region, so it´s easy to plan a tasting route. You´ll find excellent restaurants and a broad range of accommodations, from luxury resorts to homey B&Bs. North Coast winemaking began in Sonoma County, and this region has managed to maintain much of its country living feel. Aside from wine and food, Sonoma also offers plenty of activities for visitors. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Leesa Williams.

The high-stakes battle between two casino titans over the Las Vegas of the East Coast. It´s all quiet now on the eastern front of the American gaming industry - Atlantic City, New Jersey - but for five chaotic years, real estate developer Richard ´´Skip´´ Bronson was at the white-hot center of a titanic clash of money and power that transformed Atlantic City from a struggling day-tripper place with buses in and out to a born again destination drawing tourists from New York, Philadelphia, and other major cities along the eastern seaboard. From 1995 to 2000, two of the world´s best-known companies - Mirage Resorts and Trump Resorts - run by two of the most flamboyant businessmen of our time, fought a bare-knuckled, high-stakes battle over a prime piece of real estate in one of America´s most famous resort towns. No money was spared, no punch was pulled, no invective went unhurled in The War at the Shore. Now Bronson, who was a member of the board of directors of Mirage and president of New City Development Company, the Mirage subsidiary whose primary purpose was to build a top-level new casino and hotel complex in Atlantic City, tells the inside story of this epic struggle. Along the way, Bronson weaves in fascinating and inspiring anecdotes from his complicated past: A product of a fractured family and city-owned housing project in Hartford, Connecticut; former paperboy, spelling bee champion yet college dropout; and prolific developer of shopping centers and office buildings-including CityPlace, Connecticut´s tallest skyscraper-Bronson embodies the self-made business success story. Gripping from beginning to end, The War at the Shore is a rare up-close look at the world of casino development and the essential modern chapter in the history of America´s ´´Boardwalk Empire´´. 1.

To the outsider the Cayman Islands - Cayman Brac, Grand Cayman, and Little Cayman - are almost always equated with watersports and glorious beaches, plus offshore banking opportunities. This is hardly surprising, since the Cayman Islands do offer world-class scuba diving in crystal-clear waters as well as a tax-free haven. But these three islands have so much more to offer the traveler who´s willing to wander off the traditional tourist paths, walk away from the beachside resorts, and explore by themselves. Diverse woodlands and pristine wetlands occupy much of the islands´ interiors; rugged hiking trails meander across the peaks and valleys; and mangrove swamps cushion the shoreline, offering a unique breeding ground for many birds and fish. These protected wilderness areas are often left unexplored by lay-in-the-sun-all-day tourists, who miss some of the biggest attractions the islands offer. Join our team of Caribbean experts in their quest to discover ´´the other Caymans´´, the islands´ little-visited spots away from the crowds, where you can trek for miles without seeing another soul; strip down and sun yourself on a secluded beach; or join a group and sail offshore as the sun sets. As with all adventure guides, this book introduces you to the history, geography, and people of the region first, so you have a good background knowledge of the island chain. The authors then take you on a tour, visiting all the popular tourist sites and towns and offering valuable tips on shopping, transportation, restaurants and accommodations. Then it´s on with the adventures: On foot, on and below the water, on wheels, in the air, and on horseback. Among the many fun activities included are: Paragliding Sailing Catamaran cruises Soaring Scuba diving Trekking Hiking Waterskiing Windsurfing Snorkeling Driving trips Horsebac... 1.
