Whilst essentially another addition to the “Spectacular Places to see in your Lifetime” book genre, what sets this apart from the rest of the pack are its National Geographic credentials. You know with NG you are getting first hand research and excellent photographs which have not just been lifted from the internet. If roadtrips are your thing, you need this book.
Rather than simply showing you how wonderful these places are, the authors have woven them into road trips which, for the most part, can be travelled in a few hours or so. These range from a tour of Snowdonia, to a trip from Cairo to Cape Town.
