Dream Destinations

by Mary-Ann Gallagher




Whether you are ready to pack or simply looking for inspiration, the pages of this book will open your eyes to the very best destinations that this planet has to offer. From the “must see” sights of the man-made world such as Stonehenge, Venice, or the Taj Mahal, to the awesome natural splendor of the Great Barrier Reef, Monument Valley, or the Iguaçu Falls, Dream Destinations is a truly breathtaking guide to the most fascinating, romantic, and unforgettable places on Earth.

Beginning at Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland and traveling east, expert travel journalist and author, Mary-Ann Gallagher, circumnavigates the globe surveying 50 awe-inspiring destinations. Here lie the enchanting cities of Europe—from the cobbled streets of Paris and winding canals of Gothic Bruges, to Barcelona’s celebrated “La Rambla” and the epic architecture of Rome. Discover the natural beauty of Cappadocia; the abounding wildlife of the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon rainforest; and the awesome scenery of Yellowstone National Park. Or simply sit back and marvel at the incredible ancient sites of Petra, Machu Picchu and the Great Wall of China—each steeped in their own unique history.

Lavishly illustrated with over 100 stunning photographs, Dream Destinations both informs and inspires, revealing fascinating historical, cultural, and environmental information. Useful maps pin-point each destination, while traveler’s tips boxes provide practical advice on when to visit, what to look out for, and what to do at each location.
