News, views and guidebooks for walking, trekking and cycling
Cicerone are delighted that Rudolf Abraham, author of the walking guidebook to the Islands of Croatia, has been awarded the coveted Best Book Award by the British Guild of Travel Writers. This award was presented to Rudolf at BGTW’s annual dinner at the Savoy Hotel, London, on November 2. It was the first time a guidebook has won this award but Islands of Croatia succeeded in winning over the judges:
“Looking through this book I became entranced by the beauty of the Croatian Islands, and immediately added them to my list of places to visit…sometime. Like all the best guidebooks, it is a manual, a ‘how to book’. Mr Abraham comes across as pretty laid back, but his experience and knowledge of the islands in apparent. He introduces the reader to unexpected delights and provides a comforting companion to the thirty walks covering fourteen of the islands.”
