This Book Makes Me Wistful... 22. Oktober 2013
Von OutlawPoet - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Oh, this book really does make me wistful. It makes me wish my bank account was far healthier than it actually is. I want to see these places! Lonely Planet Great Escapes brings you to some of the most amazing places around the world. The photos are glorious!

Cities to Cenotes, Wildlife Parks to Festivals. The book covers it all. The authors take the time to tell you about some of the most unique cultural features of each place, making you feel like you can almost hear the sounds and taste the food. This isn't a travel guide that focuses on the practical. Don't look for hotel suggestions and museum admission charges. This is for the dreamer.

I mentioned the photos already - this is one of those books you'll want to keep out on your coffee table. When you aren't having travel dreams, your guests are guaranteed to pick it up and start their own dreams.

Absolutely gorgeous!

Inspiring Coffee Table Travel Book with Vibrant Photos 21. Januar 2014
Von S. D. Fischer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
There is much to love about Lonely Planet Great Escapes (General Pictorial): beautiful, vibrant photos; descriptive text; and a wide variety of featured locations organized by theme rather than geography.

The editors recognize that a one-size-fits-all approach to travel is not realistic. We travel as couples, as families, as groups of friends or alone - to relax, explore, party, thrill or just chill. The book's themes helps would-be travelers get ideas about potential travel destinations based on their interests.

Each featured location includes an overview of why it was chosen as well as historical facts of note and a few recommendations of what to do while there. Also included are suggestions of best time of year to visit, length of stay, budget and what to pack. The "Deckchair" section suggests related movies and books. There are only 3-4 pages dedicated to each location so do not expect detailed itineraries or comprehensive lists of restaurants and accommodations.

The first theme, Culture, includes:
-Check Out Chicago Architecture
-Flamenoc and Tapas in Andalucia
-A Culture Spree in Berlin
-Salsa Magic in Santiago de Cuba
-An Impression of Monet's Normandy
-Into the Heart of the Mayan World
-Waltz A Weekend Away in Vienna
-Live La Dolce Vita in Wales

-Reunion: A Musical Treasure Island
-Feeling Fado in Lisbon
-Dive Into Literary Dublin

The next theme, Luxe, suggests:
-James Bond's Jamaican Pad
-Open Doors in Mysterious Marrakesh
-An Island Idyll in the Great Bear Rainforest
-Safari in Style Among India's Tigers
-Live Like a Star in Amazing Utah
-Escape to Ecuador's Cloud Forest

The next theme is Food and Drink, and features:
-The Belgian Beer Odyssey
-A Crafty Taste of Cape Town
-Tasty Adventures in Hoi An
-Puglia on a Plate: Insiders' Italy
-Hawker-Food Heaven in Penang
-Chile's Grape Escapes
-Taking Tea in Sri Lanka
-Chasing Tea and Cider in Asturias

Romance is the next theme, and includes:
-Get Poetic in the Lake District
-Live the Tropical Dream on Tikehau
-Romancing the Riviera
-Sleep Under the Stars in Kerala
-It's A Pirate's Life in Nassau
-Crunch Through Krakow in Winter

The City theme includes:
-Laid-back in Ljubljana
-Tread the Banks of the Thames
-A Fresh Take on the Big Apple
-Embrace Quebec City in Winter
-Find Bangkok's Inner Calm

The Chill Out chapter features:
-Cruise the Turquoise Coast
-Spa Bliss in Bali
-Wake Up in the Wilds of Caledonia
-Tranquility in Hong Kong
-Crete: To the Beaches and Beyond
-Meditating in Mallorea
-Good Vibrations in Byron Bay

The Shoestring chapter includes:
-Sleep Out on the Kenyan Savannah
-Chic and Cheap: On a Tuscan Budget
-Hawaii on a Dime
-Camel Caravans in Rajasthan

The Family chapter features:
-Join the Revolution in Boston
-Go Wild in Costa Rica
-Saddle Up in Barcelona
-Northland: Nature's Theme Park
-On Hampshire's Jane Austen Trail
-Hit the Slopes in Stowe
-Follow Germany's Fairy-Tale Road

One of the two longest chapters, Wild features:
-Explore Colombia's Ghost Coast
-A Powder Pilgrimage to Hokkaido
-Jordan's Dead Sea Experience
-Plane-Hopping Across the Kimberley
-Where Rhinos Still Rein
-Find Yourself on the Lost Coast
-Venture in the Bay of Kotor
-DO the San Juan Island-Hop
-Get a Spiritual High in Bhutan
-Mount Up in Montana
-A Two-Wheeled Trip in Central Otago
-Motorcycling in Northern Thailand

The final chapter suggests where to Party:
-Summer in Stockholm's Archipelago
-Party Hard in the Big Easy
-Culture-Clubbing in Punta de Este
-Celebrate Lost Souls in Oaxaca
-Party on the Beach in Hvar
-Paris, After Sunset
-Leaving Las Vegas' Strip
-One Night in Tokyo

You can search by interest (such as food, music, or art), country, and other topics (such as island travel or luxury resorts) in the index.

I am looking forward to spending more time reading each overview to help plan my next vacation.

Wonderful, beautiful book 22. November 2013
Von Andrew Parodi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
I really can't praise this book enough. I love the Lonely Planet series, just about every product they make. It may sound odd for me to describe myself this way, because by the age of 18 I had visited four different continents, but I consider myself an "armchair traveler," and Lonely Planet is perfect for people like me. This book being a beautiful example. The full color, high resolution, glossy pictures in this book are often breath taking. The only thing about this book that seems a little unusual -- and this is a very, very minor detail -- is that the organization of it seems a little odd; rather than organized by continent, or region, this book is organized in terms of activities. It just seems odd to have a chapter about backpacking in the American Southwest right next to a chapter about backpacking in East Africa; two regions I don't usually associate with one another. But that doesn't change the fact that this is a beautiful book that I can't recommend enough. Thank you.

Great Inspiration for Future Travel Destinations 31. Oktober 2013
Von Jill Clardy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
"Great Escapes" is a most unusual travel book. Rather than focusing on a particular geographical area, it is organized around destination themes, including Culture, Luxe, Food & Drink, Romance, City, Chill-Out, Shoestring, Family, Wild and Party. The categories are a bit loosely interpreted. For instance, "Luxe" includes James Bond's Jamaican Pad, Open Doors in Mysterious Marrakech, An Island Idyll in the Great Bear Rainforest, Safari in Style Among India's Tigers, Live Like a Star in Amazing Utah, and Escape to Ecuador's Cloudforest.

As the editor writes in the intro, this book is all about escape, whether they be holiday escapes, romantic weekends, couples getaways, or family destinations. The exciting experiences share the common thread of enjoyment and difference, a way to break up life's routine with something special and out of the ordinary - which, as far as I'm concerned, is why we travel. Each of the journeys can be a long weekend, because travel doesn't have to be an epic adventure. It can be a mini-break, a chance to discover something different from the daily routine. I would much rather spend my precious vacation days on a variety of mini-breaks of 3-5 days, rather than one extended 3 week trip, and this beautiful book provides much food for thought in planning my next mini-break. "Great Escapes" aren't necessarily something you would want to plan a whole 2 week vacation around, but could certainly be the highlight of an extended trip to a destination.

This is a gorgeous large format coffee table book, weighing in at more than 4 lbs., with thick glossy paper and fabulous full color photography. Each of the ~75 "Great Escapes" is presented on 4 beautifully laid out pages with a map, a list of essential experiences, best time of year to visit and expected budget, multiple photographs, a section describing why it is the Perfect Getaway, a paragraph titled "Plan It", a paragraph titled "Detour" that describes other things to do in the area, and interesting facts about the area.

I'm going to really enjoy armchair travelling over and over to places I may never get a chance to see in person.
Dreamy... 19. März 2014
Von Fabulous - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Sit back and dream away with this Lonely Planet Great Escapes book… The pages are filled with amazingly beautiful photos that are separated out by themes and not geography which makes this book all the better. If you're looking for a romantic getaway or a vacation geared around food and drinks, these are located in separate areas! Love the details of each location (time to visit, what to pack, what it will cost, etc). We've got this book sitting on our coffee table and it is one of the most viewed books we've ever owned. We all just sit back, dream and plan our fantasy getaways! Great for a gift!
