    this book seems amazing! I love travel books, with a good taste of history it. I can’t always find the time to travel so reading about all of these incredible places you might never get to – shortens the work hours if you know what I mean :) Great review.

    It would have been nice if National Geographic would have sent all their current Adventure subscribers a copy of this book free of charge since they have decided to stop publishing this great magazine. I have every single issue since the first one and will greatly miss pulling the new issues from the mailbox.
