How often have you visited an area to discover that you have just missed a delicious food festival or a fascinating celebration of folklore? In this book Lisa helps you to plan your vacation so that you arrive at the best time, know where to obtain tickets and learn far more about the people of the region.
Ideally, since this a small black and white paperback to carry, you should link to the website
where beautiful photographs illustrate many of the festivals from the book.
