Download PDF by Jochen Schmidt: Gebrauchsanweisung für die Bretagne (German Edition)

By Jochen Schmidt

Die Bretagne: rau, felsig und winddurchtost. Hier haben die Kelten gelebt und die Gallier – weil es kein Römer je ausgehalten hätte. Behauptet Jochen Schmidt. Und er muss es wissen, denn er hat sich lange umgesehen, dort, wo die Artischocken herkommen, der Cidre und natürlich die Artussage. Aber trotz aller Drachen und Feen, die in dem keltischen Land zwischen Wind und Wald zu Hause sind, ist auch in der Bretagne die Zeit nicht stehen geblieben. was once sich geändert hat, welche Sprache dort heute wirklich gesprochen wird und warum alle Bretonen dickköpfig und katholisch sind – das verrät Schmidt auf kurzweilige Weise.

New PDF release: Die Panamericana - in 6 Etappen durch 7 Länder: Auf und

By Christian Schwalbe,Wolfgang Schwalbe

Die hier beschriebenen three Touren wurden in Nordamerika durchgeführt. Wir fahren von Anchorage (Alaska, united states) bis nach l. a. Paz (Mexiko).

Wir haben nach unserer Rechnung bei diesen three Reisen auf und entlang der Panamericana ca. 16.551 Kilometer zurück gelegt und neben einer Reisebeschreibung auch 161 Fotos mit eingebunden.

Die Fotos wurden selbst erstellt, ein Kamerateam stand uns - wie bei vielen Berichten der vorliegenden artwork – nicht zur Verfügung.

Damit können unsere Touren nach unserer Meinung durchaus als Vorlagen für „normale“ Menschen dienen, die ebenfalls gerne in weitest gehender Eigenregie nicht ganz alltägliche Reisen durchführen wollen.

Die nächsten three Touren, die von Mexico urban zu Teilen von Mittel- und Südamerika führen, haben wir durchgeführt.

Wir werden bald im Teil 2 darüber berichten.

Auf einer Fähre nach Japan… Alles Strecken, die sie in einer fliegenden Aluwurst mit null Beinfreiheit in wenigen Stunden bewältigt hätten – und dabei die abgefahrensten Reiseerlebnisse verpasst hätten.
