Warning : this book is bad for your wallet
on 11 March 2005
I warn you now, this book is an inspiration - it will make you want to get on the next plane out to see as many of the amazing destinations it features as possible. It makes sitting at your desk at work so much harder - and your daily commute an emotionally painful journey. There are so many other places I'd rather be travelling to! The photos are simply beautiful. But what makes this book extra special is the way it's written. It's evocative, informative and has a real personal touch. My fiancee and I have used it to decide where to go on honeymoon. I gave the book to my Mum for Mothers Day - she loves it & it's sowing the seeds of adventure in her mind. I gave one to my brother for Xmas and he described it as travel porn. The destinations are both exotic & aspirational, and easily accessible. Take your pick.
