This book delves into the everyday spaces, diverse mobilities and affective potency of weather. It presents cutting-edge research into the multiplicity of weather phenomena and analyses the lived experiences of humans in conjunction with contemporary issues, notably climate change. The book considers how everyday experiences of weather in the mundane lives of people are linked to broader changes in weather patterns and climate change. Heat, dust, ice, snow, precipitation, sunlight, clouds, tides and fog are states of weather that impact on the ways in which humans become intertwined with landscapes. Our experiences with weather are diverse and ever-changing, and engaging with weather entangles humans with mobilities, materials and landscapes. This book thus explores affective and sensory resonances, drawing upon a variety of theoretical, empirical and creative material to investigate how weather is perceived in different social and cultural contexts. Key themes focus on the mobilities generated by weather, the affective and sensual potency of weather, and the diverse cultural forms and practices that exemplify how weather is historically, geographically and artistically represented. Offering a social and cultural understanding of weather events, this book contributes to a growing literature on weather across various disciplines, including human geography and cultural geography, and will thus appeal to students and scholars of geography, sociology, humanities, cultural studies and the arts.

Smoky Goes to Europe: A Travel Tale of a Marriage is the humorous story of a pet black bear who accompanies his human parents on a 17-day trip to Germany, Switzerland, Austria, and Italy. Besides staying with family living in Bavaria; the author and his wife take Smoky to explore medieval towns along Germany's Romantic Road; stroll Mozart's Salzburg; hike the Swiss Alps, discover a fairytale castle in Bavaria; renew wedding vows in a historic Italian church; and walk enough hills, steps, and streets to make the reader collapse from exhaustion.This story weaves through the history of European countries, provinces, cities, and towns, while embracing the cultures, languages, and incredible scenery of Europe in the spring. Amid the travel tales is the story of the close-knit relationship of a couple who married for the first time later in life and have not spent a single day of that marriage apart. Testimonials from notables profiled in the book "While touring Europe with the Rolling Stones, I made the acquaintance of Herr Amsler and found him to be a greatly troubled man, undoubtedly a result of the same medications I've been consuming. The book? I've never heard of it."-Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart."An artistic nightmare!"-Pablo Picasso"Deeply disturbing! That's all I have time to say. The partisans are coming."-Benito Mussolini."One of my aides brought this book to my attention and to the author I say this: If I ever catch you anywhere near one of my castles again, I'll have your fingers cut off with a very dull sword and mount your head above my throne."-Your humble servant, King Ludwig II."Delightfully appalling!"-Napoleon Bonaparte

What happens when you take a clumsy Australian of Anglo Indian descent, a backpack, stick him on a bus in Europe and close the door? A good question, the answer to which Darren was eager to discover. After spending an eternity behind bars serving beer to red-faced Poms, Darren is allowed to escape and decides to make the most of it. Relying on nothing but his wits and a rough plan, he leaves the UK for an eye-opening, sometimes annoying, but always memorable experience around Europe. From space cakes in Amsterdam, motor scooter mishaps in the Greek Islands, a severe lack of direction in Sicily and a stubborn tent in Portugal, Darren realises he needs more than his wits to survive Europe--he needs a bloody miracle! Informative enough to make you go "Oh really? I didn't know that" and entertaining enough to make you sit up and giggle, Between Borders and Buses is guaranteed to ignite your desire to pack your bags, hop on the next flight out of the country and discover Europe for yourself.

It is one of the world's most advanced industrialized nations, yet its towns and cities are incredibly clean. It also has the distinction of being one of the oldest democracies.

Publisher: Bradt Travel Guides
This thoroughly updated edition of Bradt's guide to Switzerland offers a unique perspective on getting the most from this mountainous country travelling only by public transport - a timely release with the Gotthard Base Tunnel transforming north-south train services. Switzerland boasts the world's finest public transport network, and the Swiss Travel System is a revelation. The comfort, efficiency and frequency of train, bus, boat and cable car services explain why so many Swiss don't own cars. Visitors cannot reach many of the finest Swiss sights by road, and there are over a dozen car-free resorts for experiencing the peace and clean air of the mountains. For walkers and cyclists, there are superbly managed networks of paths - almost 64,000 kilometres of footpaths and many surprisingly unhilly cycle paths beside lakes and rivers. Bradt's Switzerland is unique. No other guide book is devoted to Swiss public transport, which is the easiest, most enjoyable and responsible way to travel. The guide offers depth and breadth of coverage, encompassing culture, architecture, landscapes, walking and cycling, and fascinating facts for railway enthusiasts! There's a host of tips for reducing costs in a country known for being expensive, while a new section on food and wine includes a list of top restaurants. Switzerland has some of the world's most beautiful landscapes; though mountains and lakes cover most of the country's regions, each offers something quite different - and the four official languages add colour and variety. Switzerland's cities are among the world's most beautiful - and safest. Its capital, Bern, is a World Heritage Site with 6 kilometres of covered arcades, where even jaded shoppers will be enthralled by hundreds of independent shops. Luzern's lakeside setting is unrivalled, with mountains in every direction and the floodlit city walls providing a breath-taking backdrop to the historic centre. Lausanne and Geneva overlook Lac Léman, and Basel is enhanced by a broad sweep of the Rhine. With Bradt's Switzerland: a guide to exploring the country by public transport, you can enjoy all the qualities that help ensure Switzerland and its cities are consistently ranked as the most liveable in the world.
