Synopsis

Dream Journeys Explore the World's Most Incredible Places by Mary-Ann Gallagher

Join us on a voyage of discovery to the world's most incredible places. This once-in-a-lifetime experience surveys every continent on the planet, selecting the most spectacular, heart-stirring and inspirational journeys - across landscapes so breathtaking that once seen they are never forgotten. Part reference, part travel guide, Dream Journeys contains a unique combination of inspirational photography, descriptive narrative and travel information: it will inspire and inform in equal measure. The 50 once-in-a-lifetime journeys featured in the book have been carefully selected by acclaimed travel writer Mary-Ann Gallagher. Geographically grouped and presented in easily accessible spreads, featured routes include America's renowned Route 66 and spectacular Pacific Coast Highway, the old and beautiful Orient Express and Silk Routes, stunning drives along Australia's Gold Coast and Stuart Highway, as well as more adventurous journeys across the plains of the Kalahari, to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, or around the magical Golden Triangle of the Orient. Beauty and nature abound on these journeys: discover incredible treks along Inca trails, winding paths along the foothills of the Andes, or the serene wilderness of the Trans-Siberian Railway and Antarctica. Or perhaps you would prefer to lay back and enjoy the romantic cities of Europe along the Appian Way; the paradise scenery of Costa Rica; or the awe-inspiring cruises down the Amazon or the Nile. Packed with travel tips and advice, as well as fascinating facts and descriptions of the world's most memorable routes, Dream Journeys allows the intrepid traveller to plan a trip of a lifetime or simply to explore the very best locations around the planet from the comfort of an armchair.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

With literary excellence, humour and drama, Lovereading's got value and is a real stress-calmer!

Siobhan McDowell

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

It's a lively, independent website with reviews, recommendations and more - with a huge range of books available to buy in all formats.

Alison Layland

Because of Lovereading I have broadened my reading horizons with some really great books that I probably would never have chosen myself.
