Title Bon Voyage

Author Yapp, Nick


ISBN: 9783823855774

Condition: softcover



Why do we travel? Where do we go? How do we get there-and how will we get there in the future? These are just some of the questions asked and answered in this colorful, informative exploration of our man's to see the world beyond his front door. In generously illustrated chapters that cover such topics as modes of transport, luggage, destinations, accommodations, and travel fashion, Bon Voyage looks at past trends and current practices, stereotypes and oddities, kitsch and class. From Greyhound to the Queen Mary; youth hostels to Hilton Hotels; camera-laden Japanese tourists to housewives in hula skirts; Great Pyramids to the Eiffel Tower, history's greatest and most notorious travel fads are thoughtfully and amusingly examined. Vintage photographs, classic postcards, and breathtaking vistas accompany a witty, insightful text while numerous sidebars offer intriguing tidbits about everything from passport stamps to the basics of camping. Beautifully designed and produced, this unique volume allows readers to experience the excitement and exoticism of travel, without ever having to leave the living room.
