The Magic of Traveling: Follow the Locals

by Bistra Yakimova

Meet inspiring people from all over the world. The book will transport you to (un)usual places seen through the prism of locals’ life. It will show you their adventure and put you in some comic and enlightening situations. Let’s travel together to 14 different countries on five continents with the stories of the people we followed!

The mission of The Magic of Traveling is to inspire you to travel more by showing you countless ways and opportunities to see the world. Behind the book is the traveling couple of Bistra and Nace. Bistra is the writer, or the voice, and Nace is the photographer, or the eyes. They travel the world and explore it together.

If you are curious about the answer to any of the following questions:
How can you thrive amid the chaos in India?
How much does a dream cost in Greece?
Do Dominicans know the recipe for everlasting happiness?
Is it possible to meet your soulmate in the multi-million China?
What is life like for the ordinary people of Rio de Janeiro once the World Cup or the Olympic games have ended?

Then this book is for you!

In the book you will find all those answers and much more. You will explore interesting corners of the world and have fun with people from different nations and cultures. You will learn if it’s possible to travel slowly when you are pressed for time, how to collect not only souvenirs but also experiences, and how to see true celebrities instead of just landmarks and monuments. You will find out if two ordinary travelers will succeed in finding the magic of traveling by following the locals.

The Big Blue Ball: A Memoir

by Mike McIntyre

From the author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller The Kindness of Strangers comes a humorous and deeply revealing memoir about travel, perseverance, and the surprising places we find inspiration.

In 1962, when Mike McIntyre’s colorful grandmother becomes the first member of his working-class California family to travel overseas, she returns with a Pan Am tote bag, its side emblazoned with a big blue ball, the airline’s iconic blue globe logo.

Enchanted through childhood by the magical bag, McIntyre hurtles headlong into a life of wanderlust and adventure, transforming himself from a small-town slacker into an acclaimed, globe-trotting journalist. In a book that is both coming-of-age story and travelogue, he illuminates his journey with a candid, compelling prose that has earned him praise as “a reader’s dream” (San Diego Union-Tribune).

Funny, moving, offbeat, and ultimately, unforgettable, The Big Blue Ball vividly captures one man’s meandering search for his place in the world.



Talk Like an Italian

by Rick Zullo

Don’t you love the way Italians talk? Those long vowels, those rolling “r’s,” that lyrical cadence. It just sounds soâ?¦sexy, right? Wouldn’t you like to have that music coming from your own voice? You can. It just takes a little practice. OK, maybe more than a littleâ??so let’s get started!

But languages can’t be learned in the same way that we learn math or physics, and Italian is certainly no exception. You can’t just memorize formulas and expect to become fluent. Yes, a few rules are needed in the beginning. But like most rules in Italy, the rules governing the language are viewed as mere suggestions and therefore must be evaluated on a case by case basis.

A better approach is to assimilate the language more thoroughly. In this book, we will indeed examine the formal parts of speech, along with some common words and phrases. But we will also explore the evolution of the language and its interactions with Italian history and culture. This will give us a deeper understanding of why Italian exists in its current form, which will help us “know” more than we’ve actually studied.

What exactly do I mean by this? Well, what I mean is that we will sometimes be able to figure things out based on patterns that we’ve learned instead of relying only on the things that we’ve memorized outright. At first, this will very much be a conscious process of deduction. But further down the road our brains will begin to do these “calculations” automatically. That’s why, as you’re learning, you’ll occasionally say something (correctly) that you didn’t even realize that you knew!

Motivations are as individual as the learner. So why is it so important for you to learn Italian? After all, everybody in Rome, Florence, and Venice (and the rest of the world) speaks English, right? Well, not everyone. And besides, how boring would the world be if we all spoke the same language, ate the same food, and thought the same way? We largely experience the world through our language(s). In the words of William Gibson, “Language is to the mind what light is to the eye.” Cultures define themselves through languages, and learning Italian will grant you greater access into the rich culture of Italy.

And let’s not stop with the spoken word. When it comes to communicating, never underestimate the power of hand gestures in Italy. For our Italian friends, gestures are used to enhance, underlineâ??or in a better word, improveâ??communication. It’s one thing to merely say, “What are you looking at?” versus the same phrase accompanied by the appropriate gesture. In fact, the gesture given without the accompanying phrase often carries more weight, more contextual significance. So keep that in mind when someone is giving you a gesture while not actually speaking.

Learning Italian is fun, and as long as you keep thatâ??enjoymentâ??as your primary goal you will not go wrong. Language acquisition is a slow process and to “succeed,” we must strive to relish the small daily victories without getting hung up on becoming fluent as quickly as possible. In the U.S., we often define our success on demonstrable results. That’s fine for business purposes and career advancement. But you’re in Italy now, if only in spirit. Parla come mangi! (“Talk like you eat!” i.e. Don’t pretend to be such a snob!) So slow down. Relax. Little by little, you will learn to “Talk Like an Italian!”

La Herencia de los antiguos Mayas (Spanish Edition)

by Manuel Huitzilli

La historia maya es todavía en curso desde el apogeo político, económico y cultural de los antiguos mayas, antes del año 1000.

El pueblo maya no desapareció después, sí que existía en el siglo XVI cuando llegaron los Conquistadores.

Aprovechándonos de la edad de oro que conoce la arqueología precolombina, los descubrimientos mayores de tumbas o de emplazamientos se multiplican en el Perú o en México

Nuestros conocimientos sobre aquella brillante civilización, establecida en el sur de México, en Guatemala y en Belice, no paran de avanzar.

Terminemos con un panorama de los diferentes acontecimientos anunciados para 2012 y comparémoslas con las profecías de los antiguos mayas.

El autor : fascinado por la complejidad refinada de las grandes civilizaciones de Mexico y Perú, Manuel Huitzilli ha decidido rendirles un homenaje, exponiendo los sorprendentes avances de estos pueblos en materias como la astronomía, los calendarios,la expresión artística y la espiritualidad, en comunión con la naturaleza.

El traductor : David Gallon es un poeta que se dedica al estudio del lenguaje en numerosos aspectos: poético, literario y lingüístico sobretodo, pero también a través de su amplia práctica del I Ching.
