Review: This is the fourth of the National Geographic books that I get to review. If you ever needed a nudge to get you to travel, this is it! And there are 500 trips discussed in this book.

The trips are broken down into nine categories:
  • Across water
  • By road
  • By rail
  • On foot
  • In search of culture
  • In Gourmet heaven
  • Into the action
  • Up and away
  • In their footsteps
Each page is a different trip with beautiful National Geographic images, a map of the route, highlights of the trip, when to go, how long the trip takes, planning, and inside information, as well as a brief narrative. What more could an armchair (or real) traveler want?!
