With 1000 Ultimate Experiences, Lonely Planet, the world’s leading travel authority, has brought together 1000 ideas, places and activities to inspire and entertain, for travelers and lovers of life-lists alike.
As Lonely Planet Founder Tony Wheeler writes in the book’s introduction:
“I’ve always had travel lists going: things I really must get around to doing, experiences I just might get around to and places that I simply cannot understand why I haven’t yet put a tick beside. 1000 Ultimate Experiences simply takes the sort of lists that I draw up and extends them in every direction.”
1000 Ultimate Experiences will inspire all types of travelers to start ticking off their own boxes of places they’ve always wanted to see and things they’ve always wanted to do, including:
— Finest Classic Train Trips: Hand the porter your luggage, climb aboard & relive the golden days of rail travel on these spectacular journeys including the Rocky Mountaineer in Canada and the Old Patagonia Express through Argentina.
