Sunny Lockwoodabout this book: Readers and reviewers love Cruising the Mediterranean.
Amazon Vine Voice reviewer Dan Curnutt says: "I think that the Lockwoods write some of the best travelogue guidebooks that you can find."
Author Alicia Schooler-Hugg says: "Historical destinations become places of the heart through the eyes of two adventurous seniors on a Mediterranean cruise ... Their story sends the message: there's no time like the present to realize your dreams."
Cruising the Mediterranean is a joyful travel memoir written by a couple well-beyond youth. It proves that age is no barrier to delicious fun, unexpected adventure and dazzling beauty.
Its pages take readers on a day-by-day journey to some of Europe's grandest cities: Amsterdam, Venice, Athens, Istanbul and more.
Even before taking off on their bucket list journey, Al and Sunny Lockwood devise a way to defeat jet lag so that from the moment they arrive in Amsterdam, they'll be alert, awake and ready to discover all that the city has to offer.
Join them as they explore historic canals by boat, scout picturesque neighborhoods, wander cobbled streets and check out window displays in the Red Light District.
In Venice, get a bird's eye view from the tallest structure in the city -- St. Mark's Bell Tower. Walk with wonder through St. Mark's Basilica, glimmering in gold and candlelight.
Climb the Bridge of Straw to photograph the famous Bridge of Sighs.
Wander colorful neighborhoods with jig-saw puzzle streets and magical waterways.
Visit the oldest neighborhood in Athens, the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul, and the stunning Greek island of Santorini.
And connecting all the historic sites in this dream-come-true trip, is the cruise ship Nieuw Amsterdam. At 86,700 tons, it is a floating resort boasting restaurants, lounges, shops, swimming pools, decks, artwork, a library, a live theater and all the scenic beauty of the sea.
If you like being swept away to beautiful places and entertaining adventures, you'll love Cruising the Mediterranean.
"We write mainly for Baby Boomers and active seniors who love to travel or who dream of traveling," says Sunny Lockwood, a former newspaper reporter and columnist. "When they read our books they discover how good travel is for everyone, no matter what your age. It renews you. It energizes you. And it gives you lots of good stories to share with friends."
