North Carolina Adventure Weekends makes it easy for campers, hikers, cyclists, paddlers, and climbers to plan weekend after weekend of memorable outdoor trips. It’s written for both novice and experienced adventurers who enjoy―or aspire to enjoy―a variety of outdoor pursuits but don’t have time to spend hours researching the best destinations or can’t get away for a long trip. Most outdoors enthusiasts enjoy a variety of activities, and this is the ideal resource for hikers who love to climb, paddlers who also pedal, and everyone who wants to get the most adventure out of a weekend. It’s also ideal for couples, families, or groups who love sharing a weekend getaway but want to do different things. Many guidebooks focus on one specific activity, such as hiking, paddling, or camping, and North Carolina Adventure Weekends eliminates the need for weekend warriors to spend hours thumbing through multiple guidebooks and websites, trying to find the best options for their multisport weekend trips. Furthermore, regional guidebooks might offer suggestions on different outdoor activities but not pinpoint the best options for adventurers who only have a weekend to explore. With North Carolina Adventure Weekends, readers have numerous action-packed weekend itineraries at their fingertips. They’ll know not only where to stay to be closest to the action, but also which adventures―hike routes, bike rides, paddle trips, climbing areas, etc.―are weekend-worthy. Each chapter highlights a focused geographic area and includes detailed directions, so readers can spend more time playing and less time driving from place to place. Adventurers will also learn where to stock up on supplies, what to do on a rainy day, and where to go to rehash the weekend’s adventures over an epic-worthy meal and a beer.

From Silvio Berlusconi's bed to Casanova's memoirs (the most expensive manuscript in history), via the Statue of Liberty's nose and an X-ray of Marilyn Monroe's chest, here is a remarkable record of some of the quirkiest, most unexpected and sometimes bizarre possessions that have changed hands in the last year - some costing millions, some only pennies (or even nothing at all). Ranging from rare historical artefacts (such as Marie-Antoinette's pearls) to the weirdly iconic (Elvis's medicine cabinet, anyone?), by turns ingenious, intriguing and witty, this is a brilliant and teasing insight into the culture of our time, packed with extraordinary things to amuse, inspire or amaze.

Die Geschichte eines Aufbruchs und einer wunderbaren Freundschaft. In Ein Jahr am Meer schildert Joan Anderson nachdenklich, ehrlich und mit Humor ihre Auszeit von Alltag und Ehe, die sie in einem Cottage am Cape Cod verbringt. Hier nun erzählt sie die Geschichte einer außergewöhnlichen Freundschaft. Zufällig macht sie bei einem Spaziergang am Strand die Bekanntschaft der 94-jährigen Joan Erikson, Ehefrau des berühmten Psychoanalytikers Erik Erikson. Während Joan Anderson sich für eine Weile bewusst von ihrem Mann zurückgezogen hat, genießt Joan Erikson die ihr verbleibende Zeit an der Seite ihres Partners, der, wie sie weiß, nicht mehr lange leben wird. Die beiden so unterschiedlichen und doch durch tiefe Empathie verbundenen Frauen reden über ihr Leben, sprechen über ihre Wünsche, Hoffnungen, Bedürfnisse. Joan Erikson, die mehr vom Handeln als von weisen Ratschlägen hält, gibt viel von ihrer Lebensklugheit weiter, wird mehr und mehr zur spirituellen Mentorin. Sie erinnert Anderson daran, wie wichtig es ist, nicht stehen zu bleiben, sondern ein Leben lang bereit zu sein, zu lernen, zu wachsen, sich zu verändern, offen zu sein für alles, was das Leben so bringt und vor allem, sich eine spielerische Herangehensweise an die Herausforderungen des Lebens zu bewahren.
