I use this book as a "To-Do List."There are quite a few locations in here that I'd not heard of or even considered before....National Geographic gets major props for that alone.

As expected for any book done by NG the photos are beautiful and the info just makes you want to throw your belongings in a backpack and head to the closest airport. Was delighted to find that I'd already taken several of the trips they consider "Journey's of a Lifetime"
