Unforgettable Places To See Before You Die - Steve Davey

Recommended Posts

We only get one life so we owe it to ourselves to see as much of this beautiful world as possible. As we work longer hours our leisure time becomes more and more valuable and increasingly it's how we spend it that gives meaning and value to our lives. That's not to say that we are unhappy with our lot but, in the absence of religion, personal fulfilment is the new god and for growing numbers of people this comes from new experiences and sights. Holidays are what we live for - whether it's to see endangered wildlife, ancient monuments, modern architecture, art, foreign cultures, extraordinary scenery or whatever, holidays offer us the chance to grow and expand our horizons. For many of us today lying on a beach for two weeks is just not enough any more. "Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die" is the first in a new series of books that will help you search out some of these essential places and experiences. These books are not travel guides and they're certainly not definitive, but they will introduce you to a host of spectacular places that can all be visited in a regular two-week holiday or less. Compiled by the people who really know, each book will be written by an expert writer and photographer who will visit each location in person. In the first title, international travel writer and photographer, Steve Davey, draws on his years of experience and selects 40 of his personal favourite destinations that will inspire you to think beyond your office walls.

When I tried it just now, it said it would be despatched within 24 hours!

 

For an explanation for what to do when Amazon comes up with unhelpful messages like that, please read the Announcement near the top of every forum called Amazon Links - Updated - Please Read. The solution is to click on the underlined title and it should tell you that the book is readily available.

 

So please give it another go! Thanks.

From where you have been, what would you say is one of the unforgetable sights you will never be able to forget? I haven't been to so many places (I'm 15), but a few will always been in my memory.

- The Grand Bazzar in Istanbul

- The top of the peak in Hong Kong

- Standing on top of the Empire state building

I agree about the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and would add

The Taj Mahal in the rain

San Francisco in 1962

Vauxhall Bridge, London

The Kremlin in the snow
