Have you ever fancied going on a “Grand Tour” like the early aristocrats, staying in multiple locations, but thought it too hard to organise?
Are you looking for a new kind of travel/guide book? Perhaps one which gives: - A well planned 14 day multiple location tour which starts in historic Liverpool before moving on to vibrant Berlin and then the beautiful city of St Petersburg with its magnificent Palaces, revolutionary history and beautiful architecture. Whilst in busy St Petersburg the tour also visits the Imperial Palaces at Peterhof and Pushkin (formerly Tsarskoe Selo) located on the outskirts of the city, in addition to the Winter Palace, Hermitage and Summer Palaces as well as many other famous buildings (including the Peter & Paul Fortress & Cathedral, which is the last resting place of the Russian Tsars) museums, galleries and former private Palaces (Yusopov & Stoganov)before moving on to the trendy, tranquil city of Riga for a well earned short rest before continuing on to the lovely city of Stockholm. - Detailed information on how to organise your own Grand Tour (travel, visas, accommodation, visitor attractions, location history and information, etc.) - Tips on how to keep costs down whist away and website addresses to visit to obtain best value for money deals, promotions and discount vouchers. - Tour destinations and attractions which are a little different to those normally on offer, some of which are “off the beaten track” and are not covered in other guides - Gives daily itinerary’s to maximise the time spent in each location which you can follow, or tailor to suit yourself - Has maps, pictures and information on locations and attractions (including address, opening times, web address, how to get there, history &/or other pertinent information) - All the information required in one book rather than having to purchase and carry, several city /town different guides whilst on your Grand Tour - Is suitable for all age groups and nationalities (particularly long haul visitors wishing to see as much of Europe as they can in a limited timescale, but not wanting to join a group arranged tour). - Armchair traveller information and website addresses to enable them to “virtually” undertake the tour and visit attractions on line, if they cannot visit them in person
Caroline Preston has always had a love of literature, history, the arts, travel, bargain hunting and adventure and was delighted she was able to bring all her interests together whilst writing her travel books.
In addition to her travel guides she has also written comedy sketches, plays, newsletters and articles.
Although it may look mysterious, the Y in her name does not stand for anything in particular and is there merely to distinguish her from several other authors also named Caroline Preston.
Caroline brings her British Northern “no nonsense, down to earth, can do, concise approach” to everything she does, including going on holiday! Which is partly the reason why her “Grand Tour” "City Breaks" and "British Weekend Jaunt" books are so useful. She has been fortunate to travel extensively in Europe and lived in Brittany, France during the mid 1980’s. Caroline currently lives in the North of England.
She very much hopes you will enjoy her eBooks and have as much fun on your “Grand Tours” "City Breaks" and "British Weekend Jaunts" as she did on hersread more
