National Geographic takes us everywhere, and with this giant fantasy-feeding pictorial, they tell us the very best places to go. The 500 journeys featured are keyed to your travel preferences: The Top 10 European Wine Routes; the Top 10 City Walks; the Top 10 Ancient Highways; the Top 10 Sea Kayak Adventures; the Top 10 Long Distance Walks; the Top 10 Shopping Streets. Of course, no National Geographic book could be limited to travel expertise, however incomparable. 500 Journeys of a Lifetime brims with spectacular shots of scenes from Tuscany to Nepal, from Brooklyn to the Amazon jungle.

    National Geographic series

    Such beautiful photography, such inspiration. I've enjoyed the series and never get tired of flipping through the pages, especially in winter when I'm snowbound. I'm also a longtime subscriber to their magazine. Definitely you'll get your moneys worth with this 400 page book. My family is heading for Hawaii in two weeks.
