    Do you want to find amazing and unique experiences around the world? “Strolling with Your Elephant: Perfect Moments in Travel” tells travelers of all ages and abilities how to find and enjoy them. Drawing on twenty-three years as President of D. Tours Travel, a boutique luxury travel agency, Diana Hechler outlines almost eighty experiences that are fun, unusual and thrilling, and that many people do not know are available for everyone. 
    Perfect moments range from waltzing at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna to standing in the sky atop the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Petting a sleeping rhino in South Africa? Renting a Lockmaster’s cottage along the C&O canal just a few miles from Georgetown in Washington, DC? The sky’s the limit. With almost eighty authentic experiences in numerous countries to choose from, all travelers can take advantage of this compact guidebook to enhance their adventures. 
    As Jamie Biesiada of Travel Weekly puts it, “Diana Hechler paints a vibrant picture of those one-of-a-kind experiences that never quite leave the traveler’s mind — especially those you may never have known existed. She weaves a tapestry of sights, sounds, and experiences that will make anyone want to get up and go.” Barbara Peterson, President of New York Travel Writers’ Association writes, “Strolling with Your Elephant is the ideal travel companion, taking you off the beaten path and on to some truly unique experiences, from Roman chariot racing in Jordan to a tea ceremony at a private museum in Japan. Well-written, and full of insider tips — who knew you can witness a reenactment of Julius Caesar's assassination in the very place it happened? — this book will lead you to those moments that are, after all, why we travel in the first place.”

    The book that made Mark Twain famous and introduced theworld to that obnoxious and ubiquitous character: the American tourist Based on a series of letters first published in American newspapers, The Innocents Abroad is Mark Twain’s hilarious and insightful account of an organized tour of Europe and the Holy Land undertaken in 1867.   With his trademark blend of skepticism and sincerity, Twain casts New World eyes on the people and places of the Old World, including London, Paris, Rome, Odessa, Constantinople, Damascus, and Jerusalem. He skewers the idiosyncrasies and pretensions of Americans abroad and delights in tormenting the local tour guides. In Lake Como, he insists that Lake Tahoe is nicer. In Genoa, he and his fellow travelers claim they’ve never heard of Christopher Columbus.   First published in 1869, The Innocents Abroad made Mark Twain a national celebrity. For the rest of the author’s life, it outsold all his other books, and remains one of the bestselling travelogues of all time. Part satire, part guidebook, it’s a must-read for fans of this inimitable author and anyone who has experienced the pleasure and the pain of being a tourist.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
