Download E-books Highlights des amerikanischen Westens.: Der persönliche Reiseführer. (USA Hybrid 1) (German Edition) PDF

By Andreas P. Kaiser

Dieses Buch ist ein Hybrid. Es rangiert ausgewogen zwischen einem klassischen Reiseführer und einem persönlichen Reisebericht. Die geschilderte Reise fand in der zweiten Aprilhälfte 2014 statt. united states Hybrid dient drei Zwecken. Zum Ersten der Unterhaltung meiner Leser. Sie struggle die eigentliche Motivation für mich, dieses Werk zu schreiben. united states Hybrid bietet zum Zweiten interessante, amüsante und hilfreiche Einblicke in die sich nach wie vor großer Beliebtheit erfreuenden Ferienregion united states West und Kalifornien, die für den Amerika-Erstreisenden unentbehrlich und auch für den Stammgast gewinnbringend sind. Zum Dritten soll dieses Buch den USA-Reisenden mit dem notwendigen Wissen ausstatten, den "Kulturschock united states" meistern zu können, denn die Neue Welt ist gänzlich unterschiedlich zur Alten. Die Kultur der united states ist uns Mitteleuropäern weitaus fremder, als es Hollywood suggeriert.

Was in united states Hybrid berichtet wird ist tatsächlich so geschehen. Der Leser sieht das Land durch unsere Augen und reist an unserer Seite. Auf diese Weise ist das Buch ein in höchstem Maße authentischer Reiseführer. united states Hybrid präsentiert Insidertipps und ist auch so ehrlich, das Reisevergnügen beschneidende Missstände offen anzusprechen. united states Hybrid verzichtet ganz bewusst auf die sowieso nicht erreichbare thematische Vollständigkeit. Die Inhalte sind durch den subjektiven clear out unserer Reiseerfahrungen vorverlesen. Sie decken trotzdem zuverlässig die touristischen Highlights und Must-Dos am jeweiligen Ort vollständig ab. Neben unseren Erfahrungen auf dieser Reise greife ich auch auf die aus sechs Floridaurlauben, einem längeren Auslandsaufenthalt zu Studienzeiten an der Ostküste und einer Backpacker-Tour zu Studentenzeiten durch den amerikanischen Westen zurück.

Die Zielgruppe dieses Reiseführers reicht sowohl vom Individualtouristen mit Mietwagen und eigenverantwortlicher Hotelbuchung, der in zwei Wochen das Meistmögliche im Wilden Westen sehen möchten, bis zum Pauschaltouristen, der die Reise geführt in einem Bus unternimmt. Wir gehörten auf dieser Reise zur zweiten Gruppe, die Begründung hierfür finden Sie im Kapitel "Reisevariante".

Die Weitergabe subjektiver Reiseerfahrungen ist mir ein Bedürfnis. Sei es zur Einstimmung meiner Leser auf einen bevorstehenden USA-Urlaub auf der einen oder zur Nachbereitung des bereits Erlebten auf der anderen Seite. So eignet sich united states Hybrid z. B. ausgezeichnet als Aufwärm-Lektüre vor Reiseantritt oder auf dem Flug über den Großen Teich. Nicht weniger geeignet ist es für die Lektüre daheim am offenen Kamin oder sonst einem gemütlichen Ort, um eigene Reiseerlebnisse Revue passieren zu lassen und mit den unsrigen zu vergleichen. Wir, das ist das Ehepaar Andreas P. und Michaela Kaiser aus Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

USA Hybrid ist ein hochmodernes Reiseführerkonzept. Es verzichtet auf Dinge wie die Auflistung von Öffnungszeiten und Eintrittspreisen. Stattdessen bietet das Buch dem Leser eine große Anzahl wertvoller Internetlinks. Damit orientiert sich united states Hybrid an seiner Zielgruppe, dem Internet-aufgeschlossene eBook-Leser. Nur im web finden sich die topaktuellen information und Daten, sowie umfangreiche Hintergrundinformationen, die den Rahmen eines jeden klassischen Reiseführers sprengen würden. united states Hybrid ist damit wohl zu jeder Zeit der aktuellste, deutschsprachige Reiseführer für die beschriebene quarter. Im Zeitalter GPS-gestützter, navigationsfähiger Smartphones und capsules greife ich statt auf umständliche Wegbeschreibungen auf GPS-Koordinaten zurück. Punktgenauer kann eine Ortsangabe nicht sein.

Ich wünsche ein spannendes Leseabenteuer!

Andreas P. Kaiser, im Mai 2014.
