For the World Traveler
If someone you know has the travel bug—this book may be the cure, or it may heighten the fever. Either way, you certainly must give THE TRAVEL BOOK BY LONELY PLANET. This book is expansive—both in content and in size, as the monster easily weighs ten pounds. Without a doubt, it covers nearly every square inch of Earth, plus the animals, flora, natural wonders, and cultures contained within. In alphabetical order, stunning photography and knowledgeable text takes readers from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe (you saw that coming, I’m sure) including Kyrgyzstan, Finland, the Seychelles, and everywhere between. Though not travel sized, this is a must-give for recent grads to recent retirees. Everyone will be inspired. THE TRAVEL BOOK is available now from Lonley Planet, for $50, in stores and online.
