<b>鈥淜ind of like getting the best tips from a friend who鈥檚 just been.鈥?lt;/b><br /><br />An international trip can seem overwhelming. Will your cell phone work? What kind of power converter do you need? What if your kid gets sick? And then there's the figuring out what to do once you're there. Why does everyone have a list of "must see" places? If you saw them all, you'd be in Iceland for a year. Or maybe forever.<br /><br /><b>鈥淲e purchased (or borrowed) several Iceland guidebooks including Lonely Planet, Frommers, Rick Steves, and Lonely Planet Ring Road, but this was my favorite.鈥?</b> <br /><br /><b>We want to simplify the process.</b> We walk you through the steps of preparing for your trip to Iceland. You'll find pages and pages of information about your cell phone, power adapters, and how to find the medicine you need. And we'll help you develop a touring itinerary, with sample itineraries based on length of stay and reviews and detailed recommendations for hundreds of destinations in Iceland.<br /><br /><b>鈥淗is descriptions are so candid, offering up positives and negatives - info you can actually use.鈥?lt;/b><br /><br /><b>This is a different kind of travel book.</b> Adults will love the detailed planning information, and we hope kids (and adults) will enjoy the more than 300 full color pictures throughout the book.<br />You won't find a list of every single hotel in Iceland or every single restaurant. You'll likely look at online reviews for those. And you won't find a list of every single attraction. You can't see it all, so please don't try! We give you plenty to cover in a vacation of any length.<br /><br /><b>鈥淲hat I am saying is, this book is VERY thorough. I can almost guarantee that this book will have a wealth of information for you, even if you've already planned your trip like I had.鈥?lt;br /><br /></b><b>It's also different because the author will answer your questions!</b> Contact us at IcelandWithKids.com or by email and we'll respond. Really!<br /><br /><b>One bonus:</b> We recently finished a video course to teach you how to drive safely and confidently in Iceland. A local Icelander reviewed the course and said, 鈥淎bsolutely amazing! 鈥?I鈥檓 blown away to be honest.鈥?If you purchase any edition of our book, even as a pre-order, contact us and we鈥檒l send you a code to get the driving course for free!

Early Santa Fe (Images of America)

The history of Santa Fe is encapsulated in imagery. Remnants of unearthed Native American artifacts from eons ago shed light on its first inhabitants. By the 17th century, Spanish settlers were capturing everyday life with brushstrokes on canvas. In the 1850s, the epic of this ancient land was brought to life through the camera's lens. These early images, which tell the story of the convergence of humanity, are as varied as the people themselves. They arrived at different times on the four major arteries that connect in the heart of the city: the Camino Real (from Mexico City), the Santa Fe Trail (from Independence, Missouri), the Old Spanish Trail (from Los Angeles), and the Mother Road, Route 66, which began in Chicago.
