Dieser sensationelle und vollkommen neuartige Reiseführer führt uns an wilde Seen, Flüsse und Wasserfälle in Frankreich und lässt uns das Land mit ganz neuen Augen sehen. Die Côte d'Azur zu überlaufen, der aufgewühlte Atlantik gut zum Surfen, jedoch weniger gut zum Schwimmen – aber das französische Binnenland bietet spektakuläre Badestellen, von deren Existenz wir gar nichts wussten. Ist das wirklich Frankreich und nicht Costa Rica? Drei Sommer lang bereiste der Traveler, Autor und Verleger Daniel Start mit seiner Frau das Land. Herausgekommen ist ein Brevier magischer Orte, genau solcher Orte, nach denen wir immer suchen, wenn wir auf Reisen sind. Denn in der Natur schwimmen ist eine der seltenen Dinge, die uns ein tiefes Gefühl der Verbundenheit mit der Natur – und mit uns selbst verschaffen.

This new, thoroughly updated edition of Bradt's award-winning North Devon & Exmoor remains the only dedicated general guide to this compelling area. North Devon's relative inaccessibility has been a deterrent to ugly development, and Exmoor National Park is one of the smallest, least well known, and utterly delightful of all national parks. The rugged western cliffs around Hartland Point are the most dramatic in Devon and the cliff-top walking some of the best. New to this edition are several nature reserves which didn't make it into the first edition and more in-depth descriptions of the far western part of Devon abutting the Cornish border. Also included are the Gnome Reserve and the Bakelite Museum - just two of several quirky places in the region - and expanded information on the island of Lundy in the Bristol Channel, as well as unique coverage of the whole of Exmoor National Park straddling Devon and Somerset. Particularly intriguing are the many descriptions of country churches, 'the storerooms of history'. The North Devon and Exmoor region is arguably the most scenic in the southwest. No other has this blend of wild rugged coastline, deep river valleys, heather-covered moorland, family-friendly sandy beaches, great surfing and enchanting villages. Some of the prettiest villages in the southwest are found here, with cream teas aplenty. Much information is unique to this guidebook, blending descriptions of little-known places and country pursuits with portraits of local characters, past and present. The guide also places special emphasis on car-free travel, walking, local food, pubs and unusual or special accommodation. Whether you like to spend time exploring National Trust properties, discovering gardens, wildlife watching (Exmoor is home to Britain's largest mammal, the red deer), or indulging in more active pursuits such as coasteering, kayaking or just a gentle pony trek, Bradt's North Devon & Exmoor is the ideal companion for a successful visit.

Niemals hätte Jessica J. Lee gedacht, dass ausgerechnet die Seen rund um die deutsche Hauptstadt ihrem Leben eine neue Wendung geben würden. Geboren und aufgewachsen in Kanada, hat sie später viele Jahre in England verbracht. Berlin mutet ihr zunächst unwirtlich an. Als Lichtblick erscheinen ihr die unzähligen Seen rund um die Stadt. Und die passionierte Schwimmerin beschließt: 52 der über 3000 im Brandenburger Land versteckten Gewässer wird sie im Laufe eines Jahres testen – ganz egal, ob die Augusthitze über dem Nymphensee brütet oder die klirrende Kälte den Schlachtensee gefrieren lässt ... Mit zarter Lakonie erzählt »Mein Jahr im Wasser« von Verlorenheit und Fremdheit, von frühen Verletzungen und kindlichen Ängsten, aber auch von seidig-klarem Wasser auf der Haut und der meditativen Wirkung, die das Schwimmen in offenen Gewässern haben kann. Am Ende lösen sich nicht alle Probleme, aber es wächst ein Gefühl von Zuhause quer über alle Kontinente hinweg.

In Dip, Andrew Fusek Peters describes an extraordinary year of wild swimming. He leads us to rivers, lakes, waterfalls and hidden pools, into untamed landscapes that have the potential to surprise and move us in unexpected ways. Following in the wake of great writers such as Richard Jefferies and Edward Thomas, Dip combines meditations on place, history and myth with sharp observation and a poet's eye. As he takes the plunge and immerses himself in the elements, Andrew also begins to surface from a deep depression, making Dip at once a personal journey and about the many ways in which wild water and nature can restore us to ourselves.
