What People are Saying...

“Ooooh, I LOVE this for a gift idea! If I didn’t have the travel bug before, I definitely have it now!!! I recommend this travel guide. It is beautiful and thorough, written by my friends Jolayne and Chris Kline. They use their extensive knowledge from experience traveling to address every detail you can think of. There are great tips of when and where and what, from before you leave home to when you are there, local transportation, places to eat, what is worth spending money on and what is not, do’s and don’ts, safety precautions, traveling with kids, and so much more. It truly is worth taking a look at if you are going to travel.” ~Kirsten
