Secret Journeys of a Lifetime

500 of the World's Best Hidden Travel Gems

The latest in the highly successful Journeys of a Lifetime series and the sequel to the original bestseller, Secret Journeys of a Lifetime offers in-depth site descriptions; dozens of fun, themed top ten lists; locator maps; illuminating sidebars; and oversized, lavish full-color images that bring to life 500 novel destinations that have managed to fly under the radar.

Divided into themed chapters, the book features the "World at Your Feet", "Last Wildernesses", "Island Getaways", "The Road Less Traveled", "Secret History", "Spiritual Havens", "Hidden Treasures", "Undiscovered Villages", and "City Secrets". This book will also feature numerous short sidebars by National Geographic contributors entitled "My Secret Journey" that will eloquently describe and personalize travel experiences for readers and will also provide insight on bonus excursions near the featured destinations.

Additional eclectic sidebars will highlight intriguing ancillary information, including entertaining snippets on the local culture or history as well as other sights to see while in the area.

As with other books in the series, each chapter contains two to five lists of "Top Tens," shorter features describing experiences in a wide variety of categories, from quirky museums and quiet city garden oases to atmospheric ghost towns and the best spots for amazing ocean views.

Zitat
"If you've resolved to explore new horizons this year, Joe Yogerst has some suggestions. As one of the primary authors of "Secret Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's-Best Hidden Travel Gems" (National Geographic, $40), he says many incredible sites are overlooked." -"USA Today" "We're kind of obsessed with National Geographic's new book, "Secret Journeys of a Lifetime." The book, which came out earlier this week, has all sorts of travel tips, from the best ghost towns worth visiting to broader topics like the most idyllic island getaways, spiritual travel tips and even classic road trips worth embarking on." --The Huffington Post "As is custom in a National Geographic coffee table book, the photos are stunning; the practical information and planning advice are useful; and the small sidebars on other nearby points of interest are fascinating. But most compelling are the star attractions, with vivid descriptions that transport you for a tiny glimpse into an often unseen world. It will leave you wondering what National Geographic will come up with next." -"San Jose Mercury News"
