Great Adventures: Experience the World at Its Breathtaking Best by Andrew Bain


Travel guidebooks can be practical tools to help tourists find their way, discover great deals, secure lodging, and select great meals. Some guidebooks really raise the bar with extraordinary suggestions. Great Adventures: Experience the World at its Breathtaking Best elevates far beyond a basic guidebook and might be the ultimate travel fantasy book. Combining a list of astonishing, once-in-a-lifetime trips with breathtaking images, all readers will be tempted to begin planning their next adventure.

Readers will browse 75 destinations organized by type of activity: hiking, cycling, diving, animal-watching, and kayaking, to name a few. Excursions vary in intensity, so beginner and advanced explorers can find skill-appropriate trips.

Each destination includes multiple photographs, a map, ideal time to visit, and essential experiences. Armchair travelers will love the highly descriptive travel narratives and recommendations for fiction and non-fiction books, guidebooks, and films related to these locales. The brilliant, oversize color photographs make this a beautiful book to thumb through and ideal for gift-giving.

No matter which spectacular adventure inspires you, be assured that your local librarian will help you find additional travel guidebooks. Start writing your bucket list now!
