Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vital Information At long last, a travel book that includes the best times to visit, best time for weather, insider information, websites for more detailed information. How long it takes to travel comfortably, and planning insights. This book saves a lot of time, that would be otherwise used searching the internet. I would recommend this book, as there are a lot of journeys, I have not even heard of before.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book! This hardcover book was given to my adult son as a gift for Christmas.   He immediately browsed through the colorful pages and found great interest in what he was reading.    Now, one month later, he still brags about it and how often he refers to it for places of interests he plans to visit in the future.    I'm glad I bought the book and will continue to purchase the other ones in the same collection.
