Lanzarote Marco Polo Holiday Map (Marco Polo Holiday Maps)
Lanzarote Marco Polo Holiday Map (Marco Polo Holiday Maps)
by Marco Polo
Edition: Map
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, large scale map, 4 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A great map, very easy to follow and well coded. When used in tandem with the guide book, we found some really interesting places. The only, very minor, drawback is that the map is a large scale, which is easy to forget at first! We would think somewhere was a guide 15 minutes away, but we arrived in about 5 minutes - this led to missing the occasional turn-off to begin with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guide book, 4 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent guide book. It was our 1st visit to Lanzarote, and we planned some trips using the guide book before we left. We also bought the holiday map, which had a larger scale than the one provided with the guide book, so using them together made good sense.

Alaska Traveler: Dispatches from America's Last Frontier

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to go!, 20 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've enjoyed Dana Stabenow's novels for a few years, so thought I'd give this travelogue a try. It is made up articles she wrote for Alaska Magazine who paid her to travel all over Alaska to write about life in the various communities. I found it fascinating, and could not put it down. As to how it would stand up as a guide today, I'm not sure, as some of the articles were quite old, and some places had closed before she finished the book. However, it really hooked me further into the Alaskan way of life, and I would love to go for an extended visit.

The set arrived on Friday, and I've now used it a few times. Although it seemed a bit pricey, it is sturdily built and the comb is extremely useful. The brush is the right stiffness for both floor sweeping and for brushing along skirting boards. If doing a large area, I use a normal brush then use the brush provided to sweep the debris into the pan. The lip on the pan keeps tight to the floor, so nothing escapes under the pan. Hopefully I will not need to replace this, but I would go for the same again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rook - excellent read, 16 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed The Rook. It's really gripping from the first page, anyone who enjoys the Rivers of London & Harry Potter (especially the Ministry of Magic), with a good dollop of humour should really enjoy this.

I just love Dana Stabenow's books. This was as good as ever, with a great characters, good plot and insight into Alaskan bush life. A pity that it seems to be the last in the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be good, but...., 18 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This could be a great book, as the plot is quite good, but the writing is far too verbose. Description is good, but is far too detailed. I found myself missing out huge chunks to get on with the story.
