London Pocket Precincts Summary:

London is one of the world's grandest cities, rivalling Paris and Rome for iconic buildings and stately architecture, and New York for world-class creativity, ideas and culture. It's a city where the Royal family is still idealised and romanticised to fairytale proportions; where countless movies and TV serials are filmed; and where celebrities—from movie stars and singers to authors and chefs—flock to live. It's a multicultural melting pot with residents from around the globe speaking more than 300 languages, but it also retains those very loveable English traditions where tea-drinking clichés and Hugh Grant stereotypes still bring a smile. London Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city's best cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences. Slip this guide into your pocket and head off on an adventure, experiencing the hippest places in London and surrounds like a local.

Slow Travel Summary:

Slow Travel is a beautifully designed and practical compendium of places, activities, tours and experiences that will inspire you to get on the road in your own time and on your own terms. It can be challenging to travel in the modern world without falling for the temptations of fast planes, cheap airlines, last-minute tickets, quick-fix travel apps and overzealous tour operators. To actually take a back seat, and allow yourself time to embrace the ebb and flow of travel, requires a more thoughtful and philosophical way of journeying. This book explores slow travel as a physical or philosophical endeavour, taking readers off the beaten track and through nature, and unveils journeys that will nurture talent and ignite the inner-self. You could decide to cruise slow-mo down Egypt's Nile on a 19th-century steam ship, visit ancient dzongs and temples in Bhutan or learn the art of sourdough baking in Venice. There are features on the world's best wellness escapes, digital-detox destinations and 'slo-tels' (hotels where long minimum stays and remote locations ensure full immersion). Along with compelling information, interviews and imagery, you'll find a how-to guide of helpful tips, from planning for slow travel to what music to listen to in the slow zone. In this fast-paced world, it's worth adjusting your vacation time to a pace we can all strive to keep up with.
