Overview

The latest in the highly successful Journeys of a Lifetime series and the sequel to the original best seller, Secret Journeys of a Lifetime offers in-depth site descriptions; dozens of fun, themed top ten lists; locator maps; illuminating sidebars; and oversize, 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 also features numerous short sidebars by National Geographic contributors entitled My Secret Journey that eloquently describe and personalize travel experiences for readers and also provide insight on bonus excursions near the featured destinations.


Additional sidebars highlight intriguing supplemental 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 several 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.
