If you´re traveling the world - or if you just want to travel the world from your armchair - this audiobook will enlighten and amuse you. It could add a few unusual stops to your itinerary, as well.We suggest some intriguing natural sights, such as the perfectly conical Chocolate Hills, Indian pilgrimage mountains topped by temples, whole forests of identikit crooked trees, and volcanoes inside volcanoes.Perhaps festivals are more to your taste. Would you prefer the anarchic creativity of Burning Man, a Japanese cry-baby competition, or a massive food fight? We´ll also tell you which major city still lets shepherds drive their flocks through the streets every autumn.If you´ve ever wondered where you can see the most human skulls in one place, we have a whole section on macabre sights that will answer that question and many more. A slightly different take on the impermanence of human life comes with industrial tourism, from abandoned whaling stations to massive salt mines.If you enjoy shopping on your travels, we have a whole section devoted to great markets and funfairs, including flea markets, souks, and even specialized markets where you can shop for Buddhist amulets. And we finish with a look at alternatives to the bucket list for travelers who want to avoid the crowds and explore somewhere a bit different.Plus, because the internet (as everyone knows) is made of cats, we have the purrfect section on cat islands, cat cafes, cat temples and even a whole city called Cat.Perhaps you´re just too busy this year for that round-the-world trip. But this book could give you ideas…and deliver a lot of fun facts en route.This book will uncover hidden gems you never knew existed! It takes travelling to a whole new level! 1. Language: English.

When ex-sheriff and watermelon farmer Bud Shumway learns his wife, Wilma Jean, wants to sell her cafe and become a backcountry pilot, he senses his world is about to change, and not necessarily in a good way. But Bud never guesses he’ll soon be deeply involved in trying to solve the mysterious death of a crusty old Scotsman who, as he was dying, told Bud his killer was a witch’s tongue. Bud soon becomes an unwilling witness to the frenzy surrounding the hunt for the old man’s hidden treasure, and it soon appears Sheriff Howie is also getting involved. Set in the deep canyons of Southeast Utah, follow along as Bud tries to figure out a cryptic map centered around a tumbleweed, as well as trying to recall the one clue that would lead to the treasure, which only he knows. Add in mysterious sightings of spacemen roasting hot dogs, a strange psychologist interviewing the townspeople, a Bucket of Bolts Overlanders expedition, and Bud’s suspicion that Wilma Jean is about to buy an airplane on the Internet, and there’s never a dull moment, even though all Bud really wants is the peace and quiet of watching his dogs play in the ditch on the farm. This is audiobook number nine in the Bud Shumway mystery series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Richard Henzel. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/120250/bk_acx0_120250_sample.mp3.

Too dark for science and too evil for theology, but some secrets refuse to stay hidden. Postgraduate student Harry Chesterton uncovers a trail of dark science that leads to the old monastery above the Welsh town of Aberystwyth. With bodies beneath the cafe, residents oozing puss from puncture marks on their necks, and the disappearance of the University Chaplain, Chesterton´s research into post-mortem consciousness is about to leap off the page. The Memoirs of Harry Chesterton were found by the author in an attic flat in Eastbourne along with Chesterton´s final letter before crossing over into the world of Thanatos. Thanatos Rising constitutes the first volume of memoirs which recounts Chesterton´s perilous investigations in Aberystwyth up until the time of his first disappearance. 1. Language: English.
