As our readers know I love to travel Internationally and Davinia and Indiana have gotten to come with me on most of those adventures. When we were offered to host a Giveaway for the Book 1001 Places to See Before You Die I said yes right away because I think that people should travel more and explore the world. No matter what you are looking for in a vacation there are so many new places you can find to have an adventure then just going back to the tried and true vacation spot.
If you go to NYC every year for the Museums and Central Park why not take a family trip to Paris and go museum hopping climb the Eiffel Tower and visit Notre Dame and in the afternoon when you need a break hang out in Jardin Luxembourg. Maybe you are the outdoor type and like to go hiking and Mountain Climbing why not hike Mount Fuji or Climb to the top of a still active Volcano.
Just opening the book 1001 Places to See Before You Die is an adventure. Each page is a new destination somewhere around the world. Each of the places they say you should visit has a picture so you can experience the place the colors, sights, people, culture. Today when I opened the book I got to learn about the Alhambra in Granada Spain, the Great Ocean Road in Victoria Australia, and Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia.
When 1,000 PLACES TO SEE BEFORE YOU DIE was published in 2003, it pioneered the concept of the travel book as both wish list and practical guide. The #1 New York Times bestseller was given a complete overhaul to bring it up to date and was re-released fall 2011 after being re-researched, retraveled, and rewritten with 200 new entries, 28 additional countries, 200 more pages, and more than 600 full-color photographs. And an engaging and interactive companion app for the iPad which was released simultaneously with the book’s publication.
