Patricia Shultzâ€™s bestselling 1,000 Places to See Before You Die has recently been re-released in the form of a new full-color edition. The book is more than just a simple travel guide. Each entry describes why the place is significant, and includes information that you would need for planning a visit, like websites and phone numbers.Â This edition includes additional pages covering 28 new countries, and many pictures.
I thought this book was a lot of fun to look through!Â There are so many fascinating places I have never been.Â Some of the places the books lists are ones anyone would think of visiting, like Paris or the French Quarter in New Orleans.Â But I like that the book also includes many less well known places, like the â€œWooden Cityâ€ of Bergen Norway.Â Here is a video showing one place I would love to see, Egypt.
We planned our summer vacation last week, and this book was useful for looking up places and bouncing ideas off each other.Â We canâ€™t afford Egypt, Norway or Paris, but we are heading to Boston and the Maine coast, both of which are covered in the book.Â I am sure I will not get to all 1000 places in my lifetime, but I am trying for 100!
You can connect with the author on twitter, @1000Places or Facebook to learn more about the book.Â This book would make a fabulous Fatherâ€™s Day present, and I have 3 copies to giveaway to my readers, just enter in the rafflecopter form below.
