Thirty journeys that really are better than the destinations.

There are many amazing places to see and a host of exciting things to do once you get there, but for some destinations the journey is the most exhilarating part of all.

In Unforgettable Journeys to Take Before You Die international travel writers and photographers Steve Watkins and Clare Jones draw on their years of experience to select thirty of their favorite "trips of a lifetime," including:

  • the mysterious Ruta Maya from Mexico to Honduras;
  • an expedition across Antarctica that follows in the footsteps of famed explorer Ernest Shackleton;
  • from Singapore to Bangkok on the luxurious Eastern and Oriental Express;
  • the famous and infamous Route 66 -- a legendary road trip through the heart of America.

Lavishly illustrated with specially commissioned photographs, Unforgettable Journeys to Take Before You Die is a ticket to adventure that will inspire both armchair tourists and intrepid travelers with unusual and amazing experiences of a lifetime.
