Great little book and map. We went to lots of the suggested places in Amsterdam. Have used books from this series before...for Venice and Edinburgh. Will buy another when we visit a new city as easy to carry and light, yet packed with info.

This review is from: BUENA VISTA SOCIAL CLUB (Audio CD)
I bought this album for my husband as a present and we have listened to it loads. We borrowed it from a relative years ago and loved it, but when we returned it we meant to buy our own and forgot about it. We recently heard it again while staying with friends and it brought all the happy memories back, so I bought it and am so glad I did. It's a real feel good, cheery CD. Buy it!

I heard this CD while staying with friends and loved it. I immediately bought it when we got home and have been playing it ever since! I never tire of it, and although folky type music wouldn't necessarily be my first choice -this is something different. Once you get the songs in your head they are addictive. I love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty to look at, 13 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is lovely to look at, pretty pictures etc. but doesn't really give you much camping advice. It has lists of music to play while camping, games to play, food to cook and is quite a pleasant read, but isn't helpful in the way that Cool Camping by Jonathan Knight, for example, is helpful. I bought both books together so got a discount, but would have been quite disappointed had I just bought this one on it's own.I've camped every year for the past 29 so have a fair idea of what life under canvas is all about, but this book has a very idealised, romanticised view ie: It's always sunny and warm, everyone wears cashmere socks and sends thank you cards to fellow campers for lending a corkscrew! please! My husband thinks it's useless, but I must admit I like all the Cath Kidstonesque pictures etc. It's Ok, but not a must have camping manual.

This review is from: Cool Camping: England (Paperback)
This is a really helpful book for those of us who like life under canvas. We have tried out some of the campsites in it and have a few more on our list to visit. The ones we have been to were excellent, and the fact that the book gives suggestions of places close by to visit etc, is really useful. Some lovely photos in the book too. We recently went on a trip to Norfolk in a B&B and while on a coastal walk at Wells-next-the-sea we spotted one of the campsites from the book, so are now planning a trip there later on in the summer. I'm now planning on buying the Cool Camping Wales book. This is a down to earth guide for those who camp for pleasure, rather than survival, half way up a mountain. I would definitely recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Venice, 13 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this after a holiday to Venice and wanted to re capture the magic! It's the story of a house wife who is un-appreciated by her family so she goes to Venice alone to have some 'me' time and meets some interesting characters along the way.It's a bright, cheery film, with a good storyline and lots of lovely views of Venice. I really enjoyed it both times I watched it and will happily watch it again.
