Great concept: slightly disappointing reality.
on 18 July 2015
I was disappointed I didn't love this book more then I did. The concept is great - but it was just lacking at parts. Some suggestions felt like they were trying too hard and seemed to me much less interesting then the "tourist road" or other locations that could have been used. A lot of the pictures feel very 90s or earl 2000s too, which made this book feel more dated then it actually is. Also makes me wonder if I can fully trust them. The same countries (Italy and France mainly) kept coming up too - at one point I wondered if I should have just bought a Italian tour guide instead.
That said, the information given is quite impressive, and the sheer amount of suggestions means that there is something for everyone somewhere within it's pages. It's a great book for any traveler friends, or even those interested in cultural studies.
