A Week Abroad is a collection of travel books that allow you to live like regional personalities for a week. 7 days for 7 inspiring portraits of actors in local life who share their best neighborhood addresses in these guides. All nicely laid out.
Charlene Lambert is behind A Week Abroad, a young independent publishing house. To date, eight bilingual guides, full of sunshine, are available for download or in FSC®-certified paper version, and take us on a different journey. The guides transport us to Marseille, Lanzarotte, the Balearic Islands, Puglia, Alentejo in Portugal, Arles & the Camargue, the Cévennes and Sicily, and make us discover each destination through the eyes of regional personalities.
" Opening minds, creating social ties and fostering local economies are the actions I want to promote for tourism responsible and sustainable. Charlène Lambert
Each guide reveals seven portraits of local personalities with eclectic profiles, in love with their region and their activity, who tell their story and share all their best daily addresses. Restaurants, taverns, brasseries, hiking trails, museums, shops, lodges... are thus listed in the Eat, Drinks, Learn, Explore, Relax or Shop sections, and mapped in a large illustrated map.
The guides with southern impressions (for the moment) transport us each time to authentic places, where old stones, preserved nature and passionate craftsmen are admirably represented by the photographs of Charlène Lambert, Emmanuelle Oddo or Hermine Naudin, whose some shots are available for sale in print version on A Week Abroad's website. A good way to bring a souvenir of your trip home!
