What a fun book. The first thing I did when I received it was just page through looking at the photos. Being from National Geographic you just know they are going to be exceptional and they are. The second thing I did was “visit” the cities I have been fortunate enough to see in person.
After that came the dreaming – reading about all of the places I would love to go at some future date. I sincerely doubt I will get to all of them but it’s fun to dream and that is where a book like this is magic. It allows the dream to be a little more real.
Any time you want to learn a little something or just want to escape from the everyday a page through this book will be just the thing. It will take you out of the ordinary and allow you to think about what might be sometime in the future.
Or at least that is how I chose to approach it. Someone else might see it in a totally different way. That is the magic of books.
It would make an excellent gift for someone who has traveled or someone who longs to travel.
