5.0 out of 5 stars I'd like to go there, and there!, 18 Feb 2012
This review is from: Great Journeys: Travel the World's Most Spectacular Routes (Lonely Planet. Great Journeys) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great Journeys is a gorgeous book from Lonely Planet covering journeys across the world whether they are by rivers or sea, by rail, overland or the journeys made by explorers and conquerors. To begin there's a short introduction on why we choose to travel followed by each journey. These routes usually cover a few countries at a time as shown by a map, details of the journey, some stats including distance, how much time it could take and any tips. Of course each has photos representing something on that journey. There is a lot of information packed into the 4 or so pages each journey covers and I like the addition of `Armchair' which includes any films, books or video games these journeys are featured in.

This is more of a great gift for someone who likes to travel rather than something to reference for a specific journey because there just isn't enough information covered to plan a trip on. The pictures however are enough to make you want to find out more. Some of them are fantastic landscapes while others are portraits really capturing the different cultures and lifestyles. There's a little on wildlife but really not enough for someone to buy it for that. This would make a great coffee table book and it's great for getting a little inspiration.
