We couldn’t resist reposting what our dear friend Restless Jo had to say about our book, “Cities of Kings.”

I have to admit to being a little nervous when I was approached recently for my views on the above book, Cities of Kings. I have followed Bespoke Traveller for quite some time and didn’t want to spoil a good friendship. I needn’t have worried. Atreyee Gupta and Jesse Japitana have done a great job. Their passion and enthusiasm for architecture and history transmits readily to this self-publication, and I am delighted to be able to heartily recommend it.
London is a city which captured my imagination as a girl, and it has never really let it go. I visit infrequently these days, but when I do it conjures the same excitement and sense of pride I felt back then. I delight in the architecture, old and new, and in that skyline, pierced anew by gravity-defying creations.
With Paris, I have only a fleeting acquaintance. That same starry-eyed girl boarded a plane and wandered the banks of the Seine with the same enthusiasm she had bestowed on the Thames. Sadly, I have never been back, but reading Cities and Kings I feel the need to return more than ever.
