My “Go To” Travel Book. Always.

EW_BooksMy “Eyewitness Travel: London” book arrived! Yay!  Everyone has their favorite travel guide series for different reasons. As I have traveled over the last 20 years, I find I like the “Eyewitness Travel” guides the best from DK Publishing. I’m a visual person and those books allow me to see what I am going to see, or may want to see. There are tons of color photos and probably more than any other travel series. I especially love the Survival Guide in each book which offers great advice if a city or country is new to you or reminders for a city you’ve visited before.  Everything from When To Go to Social Etiquette to Getting Around and Security.  I’ve already purchased China and Japan to help me plan for my Asia adventures (sometime in the near future, hopefully).

So check out the “Eyewitness Travel” guides when you get a chance.  You won’t regret it.  And no, this is not a paid endorsement.  🙂

A StarWars Plane? The Force is With ANA

Thanks to EverybodyHatesATourist.Net for bringing this to my attention.  This has to be the coolest things I have seen painted on a plane in years.  Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) has painted a plane to look like the StarWars icon, R2-D2.  It’s part of an overall StarWars deal with the Japanese carrier.  No word yet on just where R2 will be flying, but I doubt it will be to a Galaxy, Far, Far Away (Sorry, I had to!).

Check out R2 in flight below!
