Great Books for Travel Loving Families and Couples

I wanted to put a couple of great books on your radar, if you are someone who loves to travel.  These books are filled with tons of great travel suggestions from all over this big beautiful world and breathtaking images.  The first is color coded to relate to different types of travel based on the types of experiences you may be interested in.  These books are a great addition to any home library, and a perfect gift for travelers. They make great coffee table books as well.

 The first book is The Family Bucket List: 1,000 Trips to Take and Memories to Make Around the World by Nana Luckham and Kath Stathers. The book is filled with one-of-a-kind vacations to fantastic locations like visiting a "hobbit roundhouse" in Cornwall, England, celebrating Mexico's Day of the Dead – the "original" Halloween; experiencing authentic Japanese living including a traditional tea ceremony in Kyoto; or shopping the docks for lobster in Portland, Maine to bird spotting along the Panama Canal or partaking of hundreds of activities at the Florida State Fair. But, of course, there's no need to daydream of a memorable vacation when you have a copy of The Family Bucket List: 1,000 Trips to Take and Memories to Make Around the World by Nana Luckham and Kath Stathers.

The second book is for those craving outdoor adventures. Check out 20,000 Steps Around the World: Great Hikes, Walks, Routes and Rambles by Stuart Butler and Mary Caperton Morton. Take breathtaking journeys to New England's Franconia Ridge Loop, Washington's Mount Rainier Trail, the pilgrimage route of Saint Francis in Italy, and Mont Blanc, where France, Italy, and Switzerland meet. Each hike offers something unique—scenic routes, historical background, cultural information, and natural wonders. Some trips take a few hours, and others require a few days. The book provides itineraries, routes, and must-see landscapes. There is information regarding the actual route, which helps readers decide if the hike is suitable for them. The symbols indicate the terrain type, whether camping is permitted, and if the route is signposted. Plus, it's full of facts and trivia that only the locals know.
