Synopsis

Unforgettable Things to do Before you Die by Steve Watkins, Clare Jones

Following the success of Unforgettable Places to See Before You Die, this is the second title in an exciting new series of books that will help you search out essential sights and experiences around the world. In Unforgettable Things to Do Before You Die, international travel writers and photographers Steve Watkins and Clare Jones draw on their years of experience to select forty of their favourite trips of a lifetime. This book will introduce you to a host of unusual and amazing activities to be done in fabulous destinations during a break of two weeks or less. Steve and Clare's diverse adventures range from searching for pearls in Tahiti, French Polynesia, and dog-sledding through the snowy landscapes of Sweden, to exploring the rainforests of Belize, and sailing down the Nile on an Egyptian felucca. For the less active explorer they offer more relaxed but equally unmissable pursuits, such as watching an opera in the ancient ruins of Verona, Italy, or wine-tasting in Bordeaux, France. Lavishly illustrated throughout with specially commissioned photographs, Unforgettable Things to Do Before You Die is aimed at anyone looking for ideas for an inspirational experience of a lifetime.
