Book of the Week: Travel + Leisure’s 100 Greatest Trips

January 5, 2007

Travel + Leisure, a magazine that I have been hooked on since 1989 (my friend Judith gave me a gift subscription as a teen), is known as the leader in directing thousands in the right direction when it comes to planning the perfect vacation. As a reader for 18 years, they have helped me put the dollup of whipped cream on all of my travel plans, that extra touch that I may not have ever known of had I not read about it in their magazine. This is why I am so excited to tell you about the new title from Travel + Leisure magazine, a gorgeous 287 page book called, “100 Greatest Trips”.

Book of the Week: Travel + Leisures 100 Greatest TripsCategorized by country, from the United States to to western Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, and beyond, this book is jam packed with hundreds of beautiful photos arranged neatly around quick bites of information (it isn’t text heavy) in clean, modern typeface.

Inside you’ll find everything from shopping expeditions to culinary tours, driving vacations, beach getaways, art and culture explorations, outdoor adventures, travel tips, mini-guides, and listings of recommended hotels, restaurants, shops, galleries, musuems, and tour operators. The best part, everything they suggest seems to be within my budget! Score! (This isn’t too common in most travel books, as they tend to cater towards the money crowd.)

Shot by some of T+L’s award-winning photographers, it’s one of those books that grabs, and keeps, your attention. It’s one that you’ll find yourself coming back to again and again, it’s almost a cookbook for travel. I love it because there are so many delicious interior shots that it gave me loads of inspiration. I highly suggest it either for yourself, or to give as a gift.
