Great adventures indeed but not really achievable,
This review is from: Great Adventures: Experience the World at its Breathtaking Best (Lonely Planet Travel Pictorial) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a beautiful coffee table book but to me it was little else.
I love Lonely Planet's guides but I think they have horribly missed the mark with this one.
I get that it had to be visually stunning - which it is, and the photographer side of me loves it, but the adventurer side was left disappointed.
The author really cannot be serious in suggesting most of these trips to joe public. I think anyone would be immensely lucky to achieve any of these let alone trying to achieve all.
It is a shame but at least the photography makes up for it.
