I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

      Thanks, Debby! It’s such a wonderful place and I discovered quite a few places to go and explore next. Enjoy the week!

        Well, whenever I get back there, I’m talking to you first! <3 Happy week ahead Olga 🙂 x

          Thanks, Debby! Who knows? Perhaps we’ll meet there at some point!

            I’d definitely let you know when I’m coming that way. 😉

  2. We do look at guide books when we travel, Olga, but I never considered reviewing one. It is a good idea and thanks for this share. You have no idea have may books you review I buy. You find such interesting and different books to review.

      Thank you, Robbie. You’re very kind. Some guide books make me think about how many people would be interested, but I don’t always remember to review them all either. Have a lovely week!

  3. Guide books are kind of like coffee table books for me. I love flipping through the pages and dreaming of faraway lands. On the practical side, guide books can take you on tours you would never have known about otherwise. Enjoyed this review, Olga. Hope you have a lovely week!

    1. Thanks, Jacquie. Yes, travel books can be enjoyed for the places they can take us to, even if we haven’t a trip organised there (or even planned). Have a lovely week.

  4. I always buy a guide book when I visit a foreign city. But I have yet to find any better than those published by Dorling Kindersly. They have been my first choice for a long time. This one looks very good though, especially as it concentrates on the interest in Art.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation, Pete. I’ve only ever checked some of the usual ones, but must have a look at your recommendation. This one is brief but full of interesting information for art lovers.
      Enjoy your week!

        1. Oh, yes, I know them now! I think we used one for Washington DC, although it was my friend’s, and it proved very useful. If you visit again, let me know! 😉
