Status: New - There is perhaps no better visual record of Route 66's iconic sites than the thousands of illustrated and photographic postcards that have been produced over the years to promote the Mother Road's motels, hotels, tourist traps, trading posts, bustling burgs, greasy spoons, and natural wonders. This massive collection gathers together more than 400 of the finest examples of postcard art from Route 66's golden age: the 1930s through the mid-1960s, an era before long-distance car travel was largely supplanted by the airlines. Route 66 historian Joe Sonderman has curated the very best out of his 20,000-card archive to document a journey down the Mother Road through the decades, state-by-state from east to west. Visit landmark stops like the Rock Village Court, the Meramec Caverns, Mule Trading Post, and Wigwam Village in cities that include Chicago, Springfield, Amarillo, Tucumcari, Flagstaff, Barstow, Santa Monica, and many, many more. The fruit of Sonderman's labor is the definitive book collection of Route 66 postcards. "Postcards from Route 66" is a valuable visual reference documenting the evolution of the famous highway and its equally famous roadside stops as well as a historical record of the time period, complete with many notes both hastily scribbled and thoughtfully composed by Route 66 travelers through the decades.

Regular readers will know that I'm usually hunkered down on the other side of the city, so what brings me...
Advantages: A comfortable well equipped hotel in Warrington Disadvantages: Mainly suited to the business traveller
...We had to arrange an overnight stay with breakfast, close to Walton Lea crematorium in Cheshire, for 7th August 2006 as we wanted to be present at a family funeral service the next morning.
A quick search on the internet showed me that The De Vere Village Hotel and Leisure Centre was only five miles from the village of Walton and the crematorium.
As we spent a leisure break at a De Vere...

...Village Hotel & Leisure Club Swansea
This was my first outing into Wales for some fifteen years. This hotel also was an excellent accomodation with great facilities. To the right of the hotel was a Starbucks and to the left was a pub. If one stays in Swansea this place can use this hotel for lazy relaxing days to use the facilities inside the hotel as well as using this hotel as a base to...
