5.0 out of 5 stars Wanna travel but can't just yet? Here's the answer. 3 Dec 2013
By Dorothy Coakley - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book for a Stanford Continuing Education class. Often, "recommended" texts are boring, but "The Best Travel Writing 2011" was one of those books that you read from start to finish without pausing for air. Really fine! It will satisfy your travel lust (at least for awhile) if you are stuck in one of those "in between fabulous vacations" jobs. And, of course...its a lot cheaper than a world cruise. Enjoy!
5.0 out of 5 stars Winner! 7 July 2013

As an avid fan of travel essays, I like the Travelers Tales series and this one was right on with the excellent variety of travel locations and favorite writers. Highly recommend!
2.0 out of 5 stars Too depressing! 21 Nov 2012
By Sharon M. Anderson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had expected something more light-hearted, I think. These essays were almost all somewhat depressing in their contect. I would have liked a greater mixture of material, and I suspect there are plenty of literary pieces that would meet the test.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 2 Aug 2012
By Karen - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not exactly sure why I didn't enjoy this book. I guess it just wasn't what I was expecting and I found the tales that were in it boring.

Surprised to be disappointed.
