Here is a brand new second edition that has been fully updated. The author is a long-time resident of Budapest, who knows the region intimately and takes us behind the scenes to discover its best features the sights, the places to stay and eat, the shopping, and all the activities. Millions of people every year hike into, bike, drive, or climb into the green valleys and limestone mountain ridges of Hungary s national parks and the hills. Storks, eagles, wrens, blackbirds, woodpeckers, and flocks of thousands make their home in forests, grasslands, and cliff-sides. Majestic antlered stags and deer range the forest. Fresh springs and cold clear creeks tumble down from the mountains. The author takes us there. There are thousands of restaurants and virtually every type of cuisine. Hotels and nightspots are just as numerous and the author guides us to the best of them all. As you walk through the Budapest, you will find literally thousands of statues and monuments. Rose-tinted sunsets and shadowed romance reflect on the Danube, mirroring this city, which has been called the Paris of Eastern Europe and The Pearl of the Danube. The home of two million of the nation´s 10 million people, it is the center of Hungary´s culture, science, industry, and government. There are three basic areas: Buda (including Gellert Hill and Castle Hill), Pest (including District 5 - also known as the Belvaros, and City Park), and Obuda (the largest Roman ruins outside of Rome). Before Christ, fearsome Celts occupied Gellert Hill, the central mountain whose mammoth like shoulders rise from the Danube shore to dominate Buda (site of the imposing Citadel, Freedom Statue, Gellert Statue, lookout points, winding paths, and bathhouses). Late in the first century AD the Romans marched in to establish Aquincum, the capital of the province of Pannonia. North of Gellert Hill, in what is today Obuda, it is the site of extensive Roman ruins. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Adrienne Ellis.

Are you tired of feeling worn out, sick, and overweight? Why is it that we experience weight gain, fatigue, aches and pains, illnesses, and memory loss as we get older? And, more importantly, do we have to? These ailments do become more common in our 30s and 40s, but they are by no means inevitable. In fact we are perfectly capable of remaining slim and vigorous, and our brains can absolutely stay clear and sharp - if we give them what they need. The problem is that most of us don´t do that. We don´t realize what our bodies need, so we eat the wrong foods, skimp on sleep, and deprive our bodies of the movement they crave. Overwhelmed by the stresses and the pressures of our lives, we take a host of prescriptions, never realizing how they might be disrupting our bodies´ innate abilities to heal. Most insidious of all, many of us lack the personal support and the community that we need to feel fully alive. Instead we buy in to the myth that age means decline. A pioneer and internationally recognized expert in integrative and functional medicine, Dr. Frank Lipman proves that you don´t have to feel this way. You have a choice! In his latest book, Dr. Lipman breaks through the common myths and misconceptions surrounding aging and dieting, and he zeroes in on what you need to do in order to feel your very best. His two-week Revitalize Program brings together key information regarding insulin resistance and carbohydrate intolerance, gut and hormonal imbalances, sleep disorders, medications and supplements, and community support. And beyond the audio content on this download, you´ll find even more helpful material via documents available for downloads on Hay House´s website (Dr. Lipman will give you your access code as you listen to the audio download).
