Adventure Guide Hotel Stories
Adventure is a state of mind, an addiction that stems from the unexpected, the unknown, freedom, and risk. It is Steve McQueen in France, driving his speeding bullets during the shooting of Le Mans; Dian Fossey with her gorillas in Rwanda; Lawrence of Arabia fascinated by the Jordanian desert; Dennis Hopper and Peter Fonda crossing New Mexico on their mythical Harleys; and Harry Potter at Hogwarts. In this book, Francisca Mattéoli follows the paths of these adventurers and brings legendary films back to life, as she associates an unusual hotel to each story. Furthermore, having traveled to these places herself, she is able to provide us with all the details necessary for anyone tempted by adventure. An unusual and personal guidebook, full of anecdotes, information, and souvenirs.
