Travel to 400 Places

World's Best Travel ExperiencesI'm smitten with a new travel book that just came out: World's Best Travel Experiences: 400 Extraordinary Places.  Since it's published by National Geographic, you know the photos are great.  But, if you're like me, you'll be putting post-its on pages and dreaming of when you'll go.
