Format: Hardcover
If you take one trip a year and never go to the same place twice, even the most fortunate person will probably visit no more than 50 different places in a lifetime. What a great idea it is to be more aware of what your choices are before taking one of those 50 trips.

The book is organized around nine themes as described thusly on the contents page:

1. Across Water (Unforgettable voyages, from luxury cruises to dugout canoes)

2. By Road (Chasing the horizon: legendary drives and secret detours)

3. By Rail (Watching the world pass by your window)

4. On Foot (The pleasures of the oldest and greenest mode of travel)

5. In Search of Culture (Life-enhancing odysseys for lovers of all the arts)

6. In Gourmet Heaven (Seeking out the world of flavors)

7. Into the Action (Hands-on adventures for those who'd rather do it for themselves)

8. Up and Away (Flights, skyways, and bird's-eye views)

9. In Their Footsteps (Pilgrimages for readers, dreamers, and history fans)

Typical trip choices are usually described in one or two pages with color photographs and maps taking up at least half of the space. An entry contains brief advice on when to go, how long the trips last, how far ahead to plan, special packing advice, and Web sites for more information. Highlights of such a trip are also briefly described so you can get a sense of what you'll see and do. Some trips are, however, listed in as little as a paragraph.

Naturally, you have to judge a book like this very carefully. By definition, you haven't taken most of the trips!

I looked at trips I've taken that were terrific and noticed some weaknesses in the advice. Here are a few examples:

Bought this product as a gift, and want one now for myself. The photos are amazing, and the book is travel-inspiring!

The book is hard-bound with a glossy cover leaflet. Pages are glossy, with very good quality photos. Organization of journeys is by mode of transport: water, air, train, etc.

Great book for the coffee table, just to peruse, or as a starting point for planning your next trip destination.

I purchased this for my husband who has enjoyed it considerably. In the short time since we purchased it anyone who has noticed it has picked it up and leafed through it. It is fun to see places we have been and places we would like to go, and yes some places we won't go but are interested in hearing about. It was a great father's day purchase.
