Exploring one of the most economically powerful metropolitan areas in Europe, this guide delves into North Rhine-Westphalia, a German region that boasts a diversity of landscapes, major cultural sites, and a significant history. Roaming the cities of Xanten, Bonn, and Cologne, the survey also considers countless castles, palaces, and sacred buildings, such as the cathedrals in Paderborn, Altenburg, and the mighty edifice in Cologne, bearing witness to an impressive past. Numerous works of art and artifacts, including everything from archaeological finds and contemporary art to chocolate, are detailed throughout nearly 700 museums in the state. North Rhine-Westphalia’s most famous natural spectacles are described, including the dripstone caves of Attendorn and the strange rock formations of the Externsteine in the Teutoburg Forest. Details on the many festivals of the region, the industrial history of the Ruhr, the region’s culinary specialties, and its extremely diverse architecture are also featured.

Most people like to travel in comfort: they stay in fancy hotels, never leave tourist spots, and stay away from the locals. Michael Wigge isn’t like most people, though. After travelling the world without money for 150 days while writing How to Travel the World for Free, his next challenge: turn an apple into a house in Hawaii. Wigge goes around fourteen countries and six continents exchanging goods for more valuable ones, and he meets an array of good-humored people who take his deals. Taking on his Barterman persona, he trades the apple for sixteen cigarettes in Germany; a couple of trades later in India, he fixes up a motorized rickshaw and trades it for silk; in Australia, a millionaire amuses himself by offering him an art piece for the silk if Wigge feeds a wild crocodile. Finally, he arrives in Hawaii armed with two bicycles, a surfboard, Portuguese porcelain, three solid-gold coins, a Porsche wristwatch, a record by musician Coati Mundi and accompanying contract for 25 percent of the proceeds from his next single, a voucher for a two-night stay in a mansion in L.A., and a piece of original artwork by painter Alex Stenzel—now he just has to find someone to give him a house in exchange. On the 200-day journey around the world, Wigge makes forty-two trades and meets strange, kind, funny, friendly, eccentric, and good-natured people who help him in his quest. It’s a journey you won’t want to miss!

Into The Heart Of The Mafia

Lane shows how globalisation has transformed the Mafia into more than simply a local phenomenon. It describes in painful detail the daily accommodation to Mafia pressure endured by priests, politicians and prosecutors, businessmen, trade unionists and ordinary citizens. At the same time he incorporates a portrait of the South's long and tumultuous history and powerful flavours to provide a richly coloured portrait of a European region under siege.

Twenty-two ordinary Germans, among them a doctor, a druggist, an accountant, a small businessman, and a dentist, have been accused of Nazi mass murders and experts from a Frankfurt court in the year 1965 have come to Auschwitz, Poland to verify the testimony of the accused. From this starting point Amos Elon, a young Israeli journalist, goes on to crisscross Germany. He describes Cologne, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Dresden, the new press lords, the new industrialists, the new universities, the new politics of Bonn, the new establishment, and the "still, small voices" of protest of such writers and intellectuals as Gunther Grass, Henrich Boll, Alexander Kluge, Hans Magnus Enzensberger, and Ingeborg Bachmann.

If being a grown-up were as simple as holding down a job, buying a reliable car, finding the home of your dreams and living happily ever after, there’d be no need for this true story. But our mid-thirties author’s unorthodox approach and complete failure to accept the world as defined by adults was never going to make it quite so straightforward - especially when Brexit threw a spanner in the works. "If you liked the works of Bill Bryson, Pete McCarthy or Tony Hawks, you will enjoy this." - Amazon Review by Ian S Set against the backdrop of his ever-swelling grumpiness and the growing realization that he might never actually become a millionaire, this book follows him and his trusty hatchback as they travel by road from England to Vienna, seizing the chance to live in Europe before it closed to Brits forever. It's a journey that takes him to Cyprus and Venice, Slovenia and Surrey, Belgium and Bonn. "A hybrid of Victor Meldrew and Tony Hancock, with attitude!" - Direct Reader Comment
