These publications are compiled similarly to a traveller's scrapbook and they are essential reminders to all who have been travelling or only encourage the desire to travel may it be either the historical, architectural and religious aspects, or travel to discover the world! The photographs and illustrations convey the reality of everyday life without any pretension but have been put together as a travelogue which each and everyone one of us could have compiled. Local authenticity, the visitor's point of view, colors and more colors, curious tourists, experienced travellers. And above all passionately original photographers, creators of ambience, visual artists!
