As someone who has loves travel but has limited time off, the 36 hours format is great. I know having used a few of these columns that they can mean the difference between a sort of rudderless long weekend somewhere, and a better choreographed experience. Full guidebooks are often overwhelming and a little soulless for my taste, and this is different. There are practical suggestions but the columns also convey a real sense of what it's like to be immersed in a place, and they address the reality that most people aren't able to get as much time as they'd like in a specific spot. Frankly, even if the trips aren't ones that I'll be able to make anytime soon, just sampling the book gives a vicarious experience. Gorgeous photographs, perfect itineraries, 5 stars!
