Filled with expert tips, bonus side trip suggestions, and tons of innovative activities, this is an inspirational and practical keepsake for any kind of globetrotter.
I am excited to dig in this book but it is more difficult than it has to be. It would have been great if each city were listed in the index, as I would like to look up a specific city and/or check off the cities that I have already explored. Also, cities in the same country would be nice to be together in the book to make it easier when traveling to a specific country. Also the map in the front of the book does not have the cities marked that are in the book... not sure what the map is for? Anyway, I love to travel and this is a great book. It just could have been easier to navigate.
