National Geographic has done it again with this incredibly gorgeous and informative reference book that readers of all ages and interests are sure to love. I'm a huge fan of travel and I always enjoy discovering new places, cultures, rituals and ceremonies, festivals, landmarks, and everything else I can. This book truly takes the reader all across the globe introducing them to a wide array of countries and environments they might not have even known existed. Since the book is all about journeys, it highlights some of the best destinations for different activities and travelers. From hikers and skiers to scuba divers and white water raters - there's something that will appeal to everyone inside these pages.
I have really enjoyed reviewing some of the National Geographic releases of this year and they have all been amazing, but this is - by far - my favorite. As I mentioned, I love to travel and learn about new people and places and that's basically what this book is all about. There's so much incredible and fascinating information about various countries and destinations packed inside the pages. And then there are the photographs. They are nothing short of stunning and I honestly just went through the book and looked at all the photos and read their captions. It was amazing and I learned so much from doing just that and not even reading any of the text. I don't know if someone could sit down and read this whole book - word for word - in one day. There's so much information and (like I've mentioned) the pictures are phenomenal. It took me hours to just look through the pages at the photos and read their descriptions. This is a must have for travel lovers and those who enjoy reference books about places around the world. I definitely recommend this book to everyone regardless of age or reading preference. This is a book that transcends all of these things and will appeal to the masses.
