    .Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's Greatest Trips This is a beautifully illustrated book at a great price. I recommend everyone take a look at this book.

  • Beautiful Book

    This is a beautiful book--a true coffee table book. The photography is gorgeous on large, glossy pages. Each trip has the "lowdown" too, including important tidbits of information. It would also make a great gift to a globetrotter friend.

  • Disappointed

    If you are looking for some suggestions of travel sites world wide, this would be okay but still not super. It is just a glorified list with a few key photos. It is NOT a 'being there' experience. The ads I saw described it more like a photo travel experience. Definitely not! As for its usefulness for travel suggestions, well it is just too broad so it is skimpy on detail. If you are going to europe, then go to a book on that area so you can get some detailed suggestion. If you are going by car then look at a book on road trips. This tries to be everything for everybody and thus is too vague for anybody. It might look good on a coffee table.
