Journeys of a Lifetime - 500 of the World's Greatest Trips Book Review
By Michael K Bush

Compiled from the favorite trips of National Geographic's journey writers, Journeys of a Lifetime spans the globe to highlight the very best of the world's most popular and lesser identified destinations.

It presents an amazing diversity of possibilities, from ocean cruises close to Antarctica to horse treks within the Andes. Each and every continent and each feasible form of transport is covered.

Should you be looking for a traveler guide which will guide you towards the not to be missed locations, then this is the selection for you.

The photographs are awesome and also the description of every area, even though only a single page is used to give you a good idea about what to anticipate.

There is also a tiny section on ideas which actually offer you some out of the way tips to complete at each and every area.

The book is organized into nine themes:

1. Across Water

2. By Road

3. By Rail

4. On Foot

5. In Search of Culture

6. In Gourmet Heaven

7. Into the Action

8. Up and Away

9. In Their Footsteps

Every destination or journey entry includes a page of pictures and details. A tiny map showing the place and route is included in addition to a directory of highlights.

The book contains a wealth of suggestions and there is definitely something for everybody.

Also, you will find that this book is organized differently than numerous other travel books. The chapters are organized by way of vacation, not by geographic place.

It has everything you ever want to know about incredible vacation spots. It even tells you the best season and finest travel routes.
