Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Let's face it, for many of us, travel is one of the key factors in giving our lives meaning. We build our year around those precious few weeks when we can make our way to some exotic destination and experience things that are different from all that we normally encounter. With Make the Most of Your Time on Earth (subtitled a Rough Guide to the World), we are offered what the publishers claim are ‘1000 Ultimate Travel Experiences’. And those familiar with the Rough Guide catalogue will know that that is no idle boast. Within this arm-straining book, we are presented (at length) with the most exhilarating travel experiences the world has to offer. Every possible diversion is on offer here, from a cool and aesthetic appreciation of exquisite architecture to pulse-raising adventure holidays. With Rough Guide’s intrepid team of specialists (always seeing things from a different angle), one can trek the Ganges or go mountain biking on some of the world's most treacherous roads in Bolivia.

Alongside the more physical adventures here, we are given the perfect guide to enjoying the ancient beauty of Venice as well as many experiences which are more off the normal tourist trail (such as snorkelling in Tanzania). The thoroughness of the book is as exhaustive as one could wish, with (for instance) fascinating detail on wildlife and festivals. And for those of us attempting to ensure that our holidays have an ethical dimension, such elements are treated with the thoroughness one would expect from this publisher. The sheer bulk of the book means that this is one for planning with rather than stuffing into a rucksack, but such pre-planning will be sheer pleasure. --Barry Forshaw

Einleitungssatz
ENGLAND The experienced professional punter - propelling boatloads of tourists along Cambridge's river Cam - speaks of the simple sensory pleasure to be found in the interaction of the firm riverbed, the massive pole (wielded with a masterful delicacy) and the punt itself, pushing against the springy upthrust of the gentle waters. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

This book is an awesome source for trip inspirations.
Reading in it once in a while, and even if only for just 10 minutes, energizes me and makes me want to hit the road again soon.

PS: Look in the back and you'll find a register by country... :)

If you want to look for a specific country - you need to go through the whole region and gather the info by pieces..... not really too many worthseeing "rough" guidlines...

Fantastic Tome Ripe with Ideas 15. November 2007
Von Lauraloo Mattox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you're looking for a reference book on travel ideas, look no further! This book is beyond excellent.

I am currently researching for an extended round-the-world backpacking trip with my son. I spend a lot of time in bookstores taking notes. This book, however, was so full of excellent info that I actually bought it, despite my strict budget. It is one of the best travel investments I have made so far.

It is arranged in chapters, each dealing with a specific region, such as the Iberian Peninsula, Southeast Asia and even the Polar Regions! For each region, there are plenty of fantastic and interesting things to do. There is a great variety: from walks on castle walls in Wales to walks on hot coals in Greece, from Christmas shopping in Kutch India to sampling wines in Liechtenstein, from turtle watching in Costa Rica to tracking rhino in Namibia. There are, literally, a thousand things to do. And they're of all varieties - relaxing, adrenaline-pumping, cultural, outdoorsy, athletic, lazy, cheap, pricey - there is truly something for everyone in here.

At the end of each chapter, there is a "Miscellany" section with little tidbits about each region, such as the best places to dance or dine, trivia, unusual hotels, best souvenirs, etc.

At the end of the book, the activities are listed alphabetically by country. Then they are all listed by number, after which there is vital info for each entry, such as a website or directions.

Each entry is well-written by its respective author, condensed but informative and interesting. The photographs are numerous and fabulous - they get you excited about the place. I suppose even armchair travelers will get their kicks from this book!

In short, this book is a bargain, a must-have for anyone who plans to travel anywhere. Or even for those who like to pretend! Hold me to it, you won't regret it.

P.S. Rough Guides has been cranking out some great books lately. I also highly recommend World Party, similar to this book, but with a focus on festivals and other celebrations both wild and tame. Awesome.

Much better than 1000 Places to Go Before You Die 30. Juni 2008
Von Buck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
We have both books, the 1000 Places to Go Before You Die and this book. This one is much better, because it focuses much more on experiences rather than shopping and staying at fancy hotels. The other book seems like half advertising. Sure, the experiences might not all be my cup of tea. I won't be doing any extreme sports, and I won't be partying now that I am a mom. However, there is something for everybody, the pictures are compelling and the descriptions are opinionated, evocative and short.

Dream on! 7. Januar 2008
Von Artemus Q. Kraig - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I buy a lot of books from Amazon, especially books on travel. This is hands down the best purchase I have made in that genre. The descriptions are great, there is lots of valuable information, and the photography is wonderful. I would say that this is a book that will give you many, many good ideas, but you will need to depend on other more specific guidebooks for the actual planning (Lonely Planet and Footprint are what I prefer).

As an aside, I also purchased the "World Party" book that too is published by Rough. There is some repetition, but on the whole I think that the two books compliment each other quite nicely. If I were choosing between them, I would probably select this volume. After all, there is more to life than parties...or so I've been told.

Been everywhere? Think again... 29. November 2008
Von Lisa W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book is amazingly gorgeous. The photos will have you salivating like a foodie looking at a gourmet cookbook. If you have even the tiniest travel bug in you, this book will inspire you to see more places and dream a little bigger.

Because it's organized by destinations, you simply can't resist going through it and saying to yourself, "Been there. Seen it. Done it. Oh, this looks interesting...I haven't been here."

Also, I looked at all of the places where I've lived to see how accurate the book was. Were these places really worthy of the moniker of ultimate travel experience? They were! Excellent choices by the editors.

I guarantee you won't make it through the first hundred pages of this book without feeling inspired to add another destination to your "must see" list.

Packed with Ideas 28. Februar 2009
Von SharksMamma - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is filled with 1000 places to travel to. It includes what you may eat, places you may stay, what type of activities you may encounter, and what wildlife you do not want to miss out on! In the back of the book, it lists websites that have been referenced though out the book or important information you need to know like park times or costs. Great overview on 1000 unique experiences worldwide!
