Florian John Hanauers English book, “Sailing to Scandinavia”, will be getting its own audiobook edition soon! Presently, we are preparing the production of the audio. For this purpose, the text will be edited again so that all contents can be transmitted. Now, after the summer vacation, there is time for that. Of course, an audiobook is something different from a printed book, and therefore some work will be necessary before the audiobook edition can be published. For example, how are the maps produced in Audio? Do we need different voices for the narrator and the character of Mr. Moose? As soon as the rewrite is finished, the production can begin.
Sail the river Elbe to Hamburg
By the way, “Sailing to Scandinavia” is more than the English edition of the German book “Von Hamburg bis Haparanda” by Friedrich Steindorf, of which there is also an audiobook edition (here for example). The book is extensive, it contains many supplements as well as separate chapters on Copenhagen in Denmark and Hamburg on the Elbe. Sailors who want to sail north from the Netherlands or the United Kingdom to the Baltic Sea can thus experience what it would be like to sail up the Elbe – all the way to Hamburg. Of course, the heart of the book is our long trip to Haparanda in Sweden. Practical Boat Owner magazine reported on this trip in January 2023.
So stay tuned for the audiobook edition of “Sailing to Scandinavia”. We will keep you informed.
