    1 thought on “Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's Greatest Trips”

    1. It's a really lovely coffee table sized book full of the little blurbs & gorgeous photos that I connect with anything by National Geographic. I like the organization of it - with the colored tabs on the sides - as well as the chosen categories. Definitely trips for everyone. A great starting point for a "must travel" list.

    2. Awesome Book. There is a trip for everyone, every bucket list, anyone who wants to travel. Hike the San Juan Skyway, Scotland Highlands, Tour du Mont Blanc in the Alps, Dolomites of Italy, Trans Canada Trail, The Tyrol in Austria, John Muir Trail. ORtake the Inland Railway across Sweden, Sea Kayak off Baja, Slow Food in Tuscany, Cross Country Ski Vermont's Catamount Trail, Surf School in Hawaii. The best thing about the book is it lists "When to Go, How Long it takes, Planning, Inside Informatio [...]

    3. This is a great way to show students the art of embodying the voice of persuasion. These writers have to persuade the audience to think a particular destination is one of the World's greatest trips. I will select a few trips for students to read. This will be used as a model text for students to get some ideas about putting on their selling something voice and persuading the audience on why something is the best or worst. Student will highlight phrases or sentences that really stand out in persu [...]

    4. A wonderful book to dream with--of where you've been and where you'd like to go. Amazingly I have been on many of the domestic trips described. Hopefully I wil be fortunate enough to spend the next 40 years visiting and experiencing some of the international places and adventures. I'll try to remember to return to this book to make plans--it's nicely organized by journeys across water, by road, by rail, on foot, in search of culture,in gourmet heaven, into the action, up and away and in their fo [...]

    5. Before reading this book I would have never imagined there is The Great Pub Crawl in Australia where the designated driver is the pilot who flies you from pub to pub. It sounded like great fun. This is perfect gift for an armchair traveler or for the person in charge of vacation itineraries. Websites are given for each trip for more research.

    6. WOW, WOW & WOW!!!If this book doesn't wake up the travel and adventure bug in you nothing will.So many great trips, so little time.Nicely split up into chapters by water, by road, by rail & by foot. Even has the best elevator trips.A much better book than "1,000 places to see before you die".

    7. Wonder if the publishers considered such alternate titles like, "Oh, The Places You'll Never Go" or "Dare to Dream".

    8. Not really a book to read page by page, this big volume does have some interesting tidbits about our world and how to experience it. I was sort of surprised by how many of these "world's greatest trips" I've actually taken--probably about a dozen or so, although I don't consider myself particularly well traveled.

    9. Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's Greatest Trips is a thick and visual one from National Geographic Traveler that enables dreamers to dream. With brief descriptions of destinations and experiences, coupled with their ever-fantastic photography, it's hard not to pine for travel every time you open this book.

    10. Beautiful book with the perfect balance of written information and photos! The journeys that appeal to me the most are on the following pages 54 The Lower Zambeizi River, 55 The Mangoky River, 73 Crossing the Andes from Bolivia to Chile, 81 The West Coast Road of New Zealand, 145 Utah/Arizonia Paria Canyon, 151 the Inca Trail, 199 Amish Country, 280 Dogsledding in Alaska, 281 Polar Bears in Canada, 294 Sea kayaking off Baja, 295Teh Belize barrier Reef, 333 Hawaii Helicoptor tour of Darden isle o [...]

    11. I love, love, LOVE this book. I've had it for years, and it's as fun to read on any rainy day as it is to read when planning a trip. I'm constantly dog-earing another page to add to my list of travel destinations. Half the fun is looking at the photographs, collected over the years by Nat Geo's finest. The format, divided into modes of travel (By Train, On Foot) makes what could be a very overwhelming coffee table book accessible. The Top 10 lists are also great fun (Where else would you find a [...]

    12. An excellent "coffee table book". There is a trip in here for everyone who wants to travel local and internationally; by boat, plane, or foot; adventure-themed or food-themed. Very fun. The only thing I wish they could have done was given more detailed information about each trip. Logically I know that book would be 3x the size as this one, and this book is not light already-but that is what I thought was missing, more detail.

    13. Unless you are extremely lucky, extremely rich, or both, this book is a way to vicariously see places you are not likely to visit in person. It's National Geographic, so, of course the pictures are awesome. I was pleasantly surprised that I had visited some of the places mentioned, but not shocked to find that many I'd never heard of! There are minimal travel details included for each journey, but if you actually intend to take one of the trips a more in depth guide would be essential.

    14. I read this when it was newly published. The photographs are outstanding---it's National Geographic, after all.This is a great book to reflect on during cold weather monthstake yourself on a visual journey.This book has inspired country-themed parties; I've used it to inspire a culinary themed dinner at least twice.Highly Recommended.

    15. Reading is book is like traveling around the world. I love this book since it introduces places that are very beautiful and nice to visit. Also it includes here some bridges, highways and rides that you can just see it beautiful and great to stay for a while. I love also the pictures included here. Such an overwhelmed to read.

    16. This was a wonderful "coffee table book" full of ideas about places to go and things to do around the world. It's only drawback was also it's highpoint, that it didn't go into too much depth about each location. It was visually attractive as each page was one locale. For people who like to travel, or wish they could, it was a great way to get ideas about where to go and what to do.

    17. I love to travel and I think this book is fantastic! Browsing through this beautiful book, I had to add several travel destinations to my list of places I someday want to visit. If you want some great vacation ideas, from US to exotic oversees destinations, this book will provide many. Paging through the book is also an educational opportunity to discover a bit more about places around the world.

    18. It was a special gift from a special someone. For a person with wanderlust,its an absolute must to have.Excellent location picks,breathtaking images,wonderful account,Nat Geo special tips : the book is a paradise.

    19. This is a great coffee table book--I often will flip through it in a spare moment here and there's like taking a mini-vacation. It's also great in assisting with off-beat trip planning. This is definitely a book for travelers, not tourists.

    20. I went through the whole book but i think i will always be going back and looking through this before every trip/vacation of mine Its categorized so differently and it makes it more interesting and has all these new way to explore a placeSo in love with it

    21. Even when I can't travel physically, I can take "mind trips" with this fabulous book by Nat Geo. Of course, the photos are gorgeous, and it's great fun to say, "I've been there!" or "That's on my list!" when flipping through the pages.

    22. Love the color photos. A great book that feeds my wanderlust until I can take my next trip. Very inspiring.

    23. If you adore travelling, even if sometimes it is only through imagination, you have to buy these two volumes of travel art!!

    24. There were so many trips that I didn't know existed until I read this book; now I have so many more trips to take.
