Drives of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's Most Spectacular Trips

(National Geographic) This visual delight draws you into an around-the-world road trip that takes you over mountains, through canyons and along some of the most unforgettable coastlines. We love the section on Gourmet Road Trips that recommends fantastic flavours along the way.

Make The Most Of Your Time On Earth: 1000 Ultimate Travel Experiences

(Rough Guides) The Rough Guides concept has always been to take travel to the limit. This means enjoying a truly authentic, local experience, letting a non-conventional travel guide show you around, and trying your hand at out-of-the-ordinary activities. Suggestions include walking the wall of Conwy Castle in Wales and building an igloo in the Arctic Circle. Not the most practical guide but definitely a must-read for the young at heart.
