I thought before buying it that it was really just a photo book (and it would be well worth getting even if it was...the images are fantastic) but they have managed to capture a real essence of these places in words too. I've been fortunate enough to have done a couple of the trips with my wife, the amphitheatre opera in Verona, though we saw La Traviata not Aida, and a boat trip on the Nile river in Egypt and can vouch for the wonderful memories, feelings, sounds and colours stirred up again by the authors skilfully chosen words. I'm always looking for ways to escape from the daily grind of my work and this book has managed to do that for me without me even having to book any flights! Really great stuff and a wonderful collection of trips.
The authors have managed to achieve a comfortable balance between relaxing and more adventurous trips, and this book will have huge appeal to a wide range of readers, from all generations and walks of life. Even if you never get to do any of the trips, the book will be a source of travel dreams for years to come.
It's packed with amazing photography that will certainly inspire you. This isn't an indepth review of each destination, this is your starting point for inspiration in so many ways.
The perfect gift if you're trying to drop a subtle hint to your other half.
Forget munro bagging, start bagging some of these amazing places.
The succinct descriptions are able to further evoke the senses and give clear pointers to the 'unforgettable' experiences we all search for. Surely a must have book for astute travellers looking for a springboard to something special.
Even for those who are unlikely to take up the physical challenge this book shows travel photography at its best. In fact I will have to buy another copy because my mum liked the book so much she is using my copy to inspire her painting hobby.
