If you think that a self-catering holiday means exchanging one sink for another, then this book will change your mind. Written by two empty-nesters who love to travel but hate being tourists, it's a lighthearted chronicle of their first adventure together in Venice. Full of useful observations and amusing and informative anecdotes, these two 'ducks' achieve what they set out to do, which is to show how fun and easy it is to be a local in your destination of choice, if only for a week.
About the Author
Philippa and Virginia spent the first eight years of their lives 'joined at the hip', inseperable. Then their lives took them in different directions and while they raised their families in different countries, Philippa started writing and Virginia became and restaurateur and caterer. Now back in England and back in close touch, they both leapt at the idea of traveling together, and so began the Ducks' adventures.
