A trilogy of ultimate travelling in style - on rails, rivers and sailing ships.
87 imagesHeimo Aga travelled aboard the most beautiful "Hotels on Wheels", from Blue Train to Royal Scotsman, from Eastern & Oriental to Orient Express. This project has been published in 1997 (2nd edition 1999) as a coffee table book by Hädecke Verlag, Germany.
104 images12 journeys in style along the World's greatest rivers. Between 1999 and 2002, Heimo Aga (Photos) and Nicole Schmidt (Text) travelled along the 12 most fascinating rivers of the World--from Amazonas to Yangzi--with the most exclusive and luxurious vessels available. The resulting coffee table book "Flussreisen" has been published in October 2002 by Hädecke Verlag, Weil der Stadt/Germany.
99 imagesHeimo Aga and Nicole Schmidt (text) have been sailing across the Seven Seas aboard the most luxurious classic clippers. This project has been published in 2004 as a coffee table book by Hädecke Verlag, Germany.
24 imagesA visit to the legendary "Bridge at the River Kwai" in style--aboard the fabulous Eastern & Oriental Express, South East Asia's finest luxury train. Besides linking Singapore and Bangkok with the first direct railway service, the E&O now also does regular trips to Chiang Mai in Northern Thailand, making a special detour to the infamous River Kwai Bridge, including a visit to the allied P.O.W. graveyard and museum.
67 imagesFrom Moscow to St. Petersburg aboard MS Kazan, the only Four-Star-Plus ship in Russia operated by Austrian River Cruises (President Putin has travelled with it, already). The most enjoyable way to travel along Russia's "Golden Ring", by far! UPDATE: The company operating MS Kazan has been dissolved; however, many other ships are going along the same route, so images of the destinations can be used for any of these, as well!
