Description
Each edition of this unique series marries a collection of previously published essays with detailed practical information, creating a colorful and deeply absorbing pastiche of opinions and advice. Each book is a valuable resource--a compass of sorts--pointing vacationers, business travelers, and readers in many directions. Going abroad with a Collected Traveler edition is like being accompanied by a group of savvy and observant friends who are intimately familiar with your destination. This Edition on Northern Spain Features: * Distinguished writers, such as Calvin Trillin, Penelope Casas, Tom Brokaw, Alistair Reid, Sally Schneider, Bruce Schoenfeld, Anya Von Bremzen, and Florence Fabricant, who share seductive insights into Northern Spain's outstanding restaurants, unique landscape, and cultural treasures, including the Camino de Santiago; the Guggenheim Bilbao; the tapas bars and caf#65533;s of San Sebasti#65533;n, a city where cuisine is taken very seriously; the shrine of Covadonga, considered the birthplace of Spain; the wine-growing district of La Rioja; and the less-traveled routes through the mountains and valleys of the Picos de Europa. * Annotated bibliographies for each section with recommendations for related readings. * An A-Z "informaciones pr#65533;cticas" (practical information) section covering everything from accommodations, hiking, and museum tours to the significance of the horeo, Basque language and culture, local foods and drink, car rentals, airfares and airlines, travel insurance, and packing. Whether it's your first trip or your tenth, the Collected Traveler books are indispensable, and meant to be the first volumes you turn to when planning your journeys. Also in the Collected Traveler series: Central Italy--Tuscany & Umbria, Paris, Provence, Morocco, Venice, and the forthcoming Southwestern France.
