    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book!

    I am SO happy I bought this book. When I ordered it online I hadn't realized it was more of a coffee book so I was a little surprised at the size of it when it arrived. The layout of the book is fantastic. Every country in the world is listed in this book and the countries are in alphabetical order and with each turn of the page there is beautiful photography! I absolutely love travel. I love reading about it, watching the travel channel and of course traveling when I can. This book has given me insight into so many countries I wouldn't of thought to of visited and now they are on my "must see" list. I've always been a fan of Lonely Planet's website and it should of come as no surprise that their book would be just as great. I highly recommend purchasing this book. You will not be disappointed.
