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.

Detectives Barry Gilbert and his partner Joe Lombardo are back on the crime scene and this time the investigation´s getting personal. When a music mogul is found strangled to death in his apartment, there´s little that would give seasoned professionals Barry Gilbert and Joe Lombardo reason to pause, but this is no ordinary murder victim. Glen Boyd, the sly music producer whom even Gilbert once threatened to kill after the man nearly destroyed his venerable marriage, seems to have a shopping list of enemies a mile long. From Boyd´s former wife, and world famous folk singer, to a rock guitarist, to a notorious drug kingpin, it seems there is no one Boyd´s dirty business dealings have not affected. But there is one suspect Gilbert refuses to include even though evidence keeps piling up. Soon it becomes a race against time for Gilbert to find the true culprit behind this heinous crime before his family is torn apart. With twists and turns even the most jaded crime listener won´t see coming, Arthur Ellis Award-winning author Scott Mackay delivers his most provocative and thrilling novel to date - a story of family, loyalty and violence that is impossible to ignore and, once begun, impossible to forget. 1.

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.
