Informative, inspiring and useful,
This review is from: First Time Around the World: A Rough Guide Special (Rough Guide Travel Guides) (Paperback)
I would highly recommend this book when about to plan a round the world trip or indeed any kind of solo travel where you will need to plan your own routes and accomodation.
It is inspiring and colourful with vibrant pictures giving you ideas about where you may like to go, and detailed tips and information about all aspects of your trip. It covers what to take, how much to take, who to travel with and even deals with coming home again.
It is written in a way that appeals to both young students/graduates/young people who are about to embark upon an adventure but it is not soley for this group. It offers tips for those on a career break and those that may have to deal with renting out their own property when they go away so I feel it would be useful for all travellers of all ages.
The end of the book gives brief highlights and accounts of continents to get you thinking about where you might like to go and throughout the book there are leads and links to places where you can access further information on the topics covered.
I think that this is one of the best books i've read on the subject and worth investing in to maximise your trip.
