Synopsis: On a trail of relics and ruins, Snapshots is a book of travels delineating my journeys of four major continents. A travel through the ancient, the medieval, the renaissance and the modern, national heritage of each of these continents has been pivotal to this book, showing an evolution of history. Primarily, palaces, mosques, churches, temples and museums, renowned forests and sea beaches have also been depicted.
Musing on peoples’ views and perceptions which they have shared with me, a stream of consciousness technique has been applied in presenting some segment in order to exhibit my internal monologue. With my rendering, these accounts have been compiled as chronicles of motley collection. On rare occasion, culinary descriptions have been noted.
Time is of essence. And on a timeline of this journey, specific dates have been drawn. As great distances have been covered, it has taken a long time for this book to be written. Snapshots started as a diary, but evolved over time into a book. Dynamic in its own right, at the end of each traverse, another begins anew and is recorded in the travelogue.
My journey begins in Europe, then to North America, Australia and ends in the sub-continent.
Snapshots is a creative travel story that takes readers on an informative journey to many beautiful cities, spanning four continents.
The author's adventure begins in Europe and readers are witness to the magic of cities like Florence, Paris, and London. Next she travels to North America before moving on to Australia and Asia. Countless cities are visited and the pilgrimage is extensively detailed. Nothing is overlooked as points of interest, history, and even culinary delights are illuminated. The book is reminiscent of a travel manifest and reads much like a diary. The events are chronological and told with such finesse that readers can get an actual feel for all this traveling author encounters in our picturesque world.
If you're looking to travel or just learn more about some fascinating locations around the world this book is a must. I recommend picking up a copy. Snapshots is available on Amazon.
