Unless your name is Gulliver and you have time to spare, visiting new and exotic  locations can waste a lot of time finding your way around.
With the average holiday taking up to two weeks, by the time you have sorted out the places to go and sights to see, it is usually time to come home, so a momentary thought about this situation has brought me a solution and new interest in travelling.
The 'Eureka' moment came on a hot and sultry afternoon in Rome when it almost hurt to walk on the hot pavements.
Struggling with the weight of the excellent Rough Guide to Italy, the worthy publication is suggested as a must for the regular traveller or student trying to see as many sights and eke out a small grant.
In my early days of travelling it was just the ticket, but as the number of summers mounted and the size of the Guide grew with my waist measurements, my taste for adventure slowed up and the need to enjoy favourite sights in a more leisurely way took precedence.
That is probably the longest introduction I have written to say simply, I have found a way to relax on my holiday.
It has always been an ambition to share my wonder of the places I visited, and telling stories is how I make my living, so I offer my 48-page A4 full colour glossy 'Travelogue' of how to enjoy the astounding beauty and ambience of Tuscany's  Florence .
Cutting and pasting the finest sights, sounds and places to see in the time warp that  still is the Renaissance capital of Italy, I have just published an essay in words and pictures titled, 'All Sides of Florence', a personal guide to extracting maximum enjoyment from your precious holiday fortnight.
The glossy pages guide the reader to the best places to visit where history and tradition can be shared with the cuisine, be it a full six course dinner or pizza shared amid the rich aroma of coffee brewing.
Having been thoroughly infused with these joys, the Travelogue guides the reader to other sights close by for another experience.
All well within the time scale before returning home with many tales to tell of a holiday enjoyed.
