    From the Publisher

    "Talk about pressure! A beautifully illustrated travel book like this is deadly: It could make you drop everything and go somewhere that could change your life in an instant.... This atlas is quite inspiring and manageable, not to mention cleverly arranged: The places visited in the book are pinpointed on a two-page spread of the world's climatic zones. Each destination comes with detailed maps, tips, and firsthand tales in order to...'help you choose the place that suits your schedule, your mood, and your dreams.'"
