Summary

Discover places you never knew existed and will fascinate you and facts that will blow your mind!

This book is a collection of Bill Roger's two incredible travel and trivia books which includes:

  1. Travel Book: A Travel Book of Hidden Gems that Takes You on a Journey You Will Never Forget: World Explorer
  2. Surprising and Shocking Fun Facts: The Treasure Book of Amazing Trivia.
     

If you're traveling the world - or if you just want to travel the world from your armchair - this book will enlighten and amuse you. It could add a few unusual stops to your itinerary, as well.
 

Perhaps you're just too busy this year for that round-the-world trip. But this book could give you ideas...and deliver a lot of fun facts en route.

This book will uncover hidden gems you never knew existed! It takes travelling to a whole new level! 

Also included: 

Maybe you want to impress your friends with a wealth of trivia - or maybe you're just fascinated by strange customs and odd traditions! This isn't just a round-up of odd facts - it's a treasury of enjoyable stories, some with a humorous turn, or a twist in the tale.

You'll be disgusted by some of the weird foods covered in the book - amused by Mark Thatcher, lost in the Sahara - captivated by the attempt to conquer the North Pole by balloon - and amazed by the way some Filipinos take their dead relatives out for a walk. We also introduce you to Columbus, the biggest failure ever, and the wonderfully named Ivailo the Cabbage, King of Bulgaria.

You may not be able to get a degree in geography or history with these fun facts - degree courses would be a lot more fun if you could! But this book will take you on a trip round the world and through the centuries that is enthralling and never, ever dull.

This book will keep you entertained, uncover hidden gems, and take you on the journey of a lifetime! Great for increasing your own knowledge, picking an exciting travel destination or as a gift!

has own style of understanding

Think about the character of the destination AND the character of your travel. Each publication has its target audience and style to go with it. Some will try to spread that net to catch a few more readers, but they can’t escape their own character.

designed perfectly for travel lover

Information about a place designed for the use of visitors or tourists". It will usually include information about sights, accommodation, restaurants, transportation, and activities. Maps of varying detail and historical and cultural information are often included.

love it, live it, breath it

Travel. I love it. I live it. I breathe it. In my view, it all starts with the rush of exhilaration when I choose the magical destination for my next trip…only to come crashing down when I have to choose a damn travel guide to start my research. Because you don’t want to be lugging around every travel guide. You need to narrow it down to the best travel guide books. And I mean, really narrow it down.

practical side of travel planning

We’re not talking the travel-inspiring books. We’re talking the more practical side of travel planning. And seriously, there are so many travel guides on the market, it is a nightmare of global proportions to choose only one. Add to that how quickly the information can date, and you are left wondering if this really is such a good idea.

perfect for your adventures

The thing is, each travel guide has its pros and cons. Some are perfect for the USA, some have a better understanding of the winding roads of New Zealand. There are guides perfect for your architectural adventures through Rome while others take you on a culinary tour of Paris. But unless you have nine months to read up on every travel guide, it’s really hard to know which is the best travel guide books.

great understanding for distance

I find this travel guide audio-book guides are best when you are travelling to a country or region, rather than a city or town. It has a great understanding of distance, travel, and all the little mysteries you can find in between. For example, the guide for Italy is brilliant for travelling around the country-side on trains and buses but the specific details for Rome are limited with less detail and enticement. thanks for this audio-book.
