Secret Europe: 50 Truly Unforgettable Experiences to Inspire your next trip; Lonely Planet

This book is simply a gate-way drug to wanderlust. Yep, you read that right. Don’t download this unless you want to be tempted into booking a fabulous holiday somewhere exotic.

I did warn you.

The downside to blogging, and reading so many wonderful blogs <shameless plug for all my favourite bloggers> is the sheer inspiration that causes you to fall in love with yet another destination from afar. Sunshine drenched beaches, hilarious travel escapades, immersing yourself in different cultures, tasting wonderful new flavours. All of it.

And this short book was no better. A free(!) Kindle download, it sucked me in whilst I was having a weak moment and a holiday to book over the Christmas/New Year break. With suggestions ranging from secret Krakow pubs, to sun-drenched Italian villages undiscovered by the mauraudering masses I soon realised that this may be the most costly free book I’ve ever owned.

I feel like travel bloggers are not just travelling to spend half an hour in each new city, but to experience something that makes a country unique, the as yet untold story of their own adventures – some good, some bad. We want to experience something of that city making it unique; the good, the bad AND the fascinating.

Is this really a book review? Probably not. But promise me you’ll dream big, ok?
