Item description for Vuelta Al Mundo en 80 Maravillas (Spanish Edition) by Carla Serra, Silvia Bombelli, Wolfgang Van Halen, David Lee Roth, Abraham Bernstein, Richard E. Mayer & Douglas Dunn...
Today, Phineas Foggs 80-day circumnavigation of the globe is not quite the stunning feat it was in 1873, but nevertheless, the story of his journey continues to fascinate readers and travelers alike. And, as only befits a classic of the travel writing genre, it continues to inspire travel writers as well. Here, authors Carla Serra and Silvia Bombelli lead readers on a whirlwind, 80-stage tour in search not of Foggs monetary prize but of the crown jewels of art, history, and nature. The tour encompasses natural beauties Mont Blanc to Monument Valley, the Great Barrier Reef to the Vatnajokull glacier, the Grand Canyon to the waterfalls of Iguazu and those made by humans from the Mexican pyramids to the skyscrapers of Manhattan, the Great Wall to Versailles, the ancient cities to 21st-century London. Vivid text provides riveting narration for each phase of this grand adventure, while spectacular photographs act as windows onto the world, giving readers the delightful impression theyre journeying by train, plane, and ship.
