The grandeur of the age of glamorous travel is brought to life in this lavishly illustrated volume.

This fascinating book celebrates a time when one could cross the Atlantic on the "Queen Mary" or speed across Europe on the "Orient Express," being pampered all the while. At journey's end there was the Ritz Hotel in Paris or the Excelsior in Venice to offer luxurious accommodations and the finest foods.

A lively text, accompanied by period illustrations, make this book ideal reading for those who yearn for a gentler, less hurried age when how you reached your destination was considered as important as actually arriving.
