The Travel Book
The Travel Book: A Journey Through Every Country in the World | Lonely Planet,
13 posts | 2 read | 1 reading | 3 to read
And here's the list. Everywhere. In one comprehensive volume. Defining everywhere was no easy task. Jotting down the 192 member states of the United Nations was the easy part; deciding which other destinations to include provoked much spirited debate and food for thought. We're very proud of this book, an all-consuming project that has involved huge input from authors, staff, photographers and experts from around the globe. Like any serious addiction, the travel bug requires constant attention. If, like me, you consider travel to be an important part of your life, then this book will be bad news - it shows us that no matter how far we travel, there's always further to go. At Lonely Planet we believe passionately in the power of independent travel to transform travellers and the communities to which they travel. Bringing respect, sensitivity, curiosity and a generous dose of humour to the travel experience is enormously important, and we hope this book acts not just as a reference tool, but also as a valuable introduction to a better travel experience. Travel is the world's most important business, but it means far more than just money and employment. It is through travel that we go out and meet the world and the world cornes to meet us. So open The Travel Book and dive inside - my bet is that soon you'll want to turn the printed experience into a real one.

@Chili What a wonderful adventure! Thank you for putting together such a thoughtful journey through the English countryside!

I love the snacks you chose - wow!! And I especially love that you included sustenance for my traveling companions. 🐶❤️🐶 The Timtams are delicious! I had to sneak one in with my morning coffee 😄 I can‘t wait to try the Caribou coffee - in my Caribou coffee mug! ☕️ Thank you for my bookish goodies & tote for carrying ...

Avanders 😍😍 4mo
Chrissyreadit Wow!!! This looks like so much fun!!! 🥰😍👏😍🥰 4mo

Being transported by a book to a different time and place is magical ❤️ Wouldn‘t it be awesome if you could capture that magic and share it with another Litten? You can!

@Chrissyreadit came up with the genius idea to swap books & surprises all centered around a time and place you would like to “travel” to. Fancy Jane Austen‘s England? Or Nemo‘s Submarine? Anywhere, anytime, & you don‘t even have to leave your couch! It is the ultimate staycation!

Chrissyreadit I LOVE your wording!!!! 6mo
Karisa Sounds like fun! Great idea. 😊 6mo

Gissy What type of books we share here? 6mo
mabell @Chrissyreadit Thanks! I‘m just *slightly* excited 😆 🤣 6mo
mabell @Karisa I agree! A really unique way to get creative and share goodies! 😄 6mo
Chrissyreadit @Gissy it can be fairly imaginative- any time past or future and any place- imagine you were traveling as a character in your book- and feel immersed in the setting while you read the story. 6mo
Chrissyreadit @mabell yay!!!! I‘m pretty excited too! I can‘t wait to see how people interpret and create this for their partners!!! 6mo
Gissy Then I want to be in Paris again, visit Scotland, Iceland, Japan, Hawaii, Caribbean countries with wonderful beaches, places to run, to do some wild sports, I can keep going😂I will sign today, sold👍 6mo
mabell @Gissy You could send fiction, nonfiction, whatever you think your swap partner would like. The difference in this case is the theme isn‘t fixed - it will depend on what time/place your swap partner chooses as their “destination”. Like Paris in the Belle Époque or the American West in the mid 1800s or even, a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... ? 6mo
mabell @Chrissyreadit Great explanation! And yes, opening day is going to be awesome! So glad you are going to do it too @Gissy ! ❤️ 6mo
mabell @Gissy I can‘t wait to see what you chose! I love your options! My choice was pretty obvious considering my profile... 😆 It will be so fun to plan the adventure for my match, it will be like I‘m going on the adventure too! 😄 6mo
Chrissyreadit @Gissy I‘m so glad you are going to join and I can‘t wait to see the time/place(s) you choose! @mabell I feel like the prep for my match will be so much fun too! I‘m really excited about this swap 🥰🥰🥰🥰 6mo
