The older style of writing late 1800s takes a little getting used to and you ll find some of the advice to be laughable these days Frustratingly, you ll often find at one point that the author tells you to pack light e.g for walking tours, or where you pay for luggage by weight , and then in the next breath, they are advising you take your own etna for heating water, your own deckchair, every possible toiletry, etc And as for the notion of tossing used clothing overboard on sailing trips This little book gives you glimpse into ladies of a certain social class s life during the 19th century The burgeoning freedom of unsupervised public movement necessitated the writing of this travel guide.
