I read this book while Planning a trip to Ireland. and i needed something more general and less detailed like Lonely planet or other guides, that way i can plan the route, and do my research afterwards. so this book gave me to my surprise, great tips! and it gave me a great ideas for routes in Ireland. It display the main route from Dublin to Galway (very recommended) and it has allot of tips for some hidden places on the way. this book was written by multiple authors, just like many guide books.but this one felt like they knew what they were talking about, and shared their personal preferences, and revealed great places for walk and enjoying the country of Ireland. It also had great recommendations for B&B, and backpackers restaurants. this book will be around for the long run, and its no wonder. You can also view all my reviews here : mikes-road-planner

I think this is a decent book for getting a good taste of what the USA is like for traveler. for first timer, its a good place to start. its good for New York City trips, and a lot of other spots. its a great book for heavy traveler, not for those who are traveling the USA for a week… its best for cross country trips. you get plenty of good advice’s and tips for the big cities as well as the small country towns. its a great book for my own traveling collection books.

I think this book can give you an extra for the main routes and attractions in London. I’ve been to the UK and specifically London many times, and i really appreciated the 2012 edition of this book. the maps and pictures helped allot, and we enjoyed to plan a London trip with this book. it could be that this book is allot more for people that visited London before, and are familiar with allot of the areas.

Travel plans in Europe

As a senior traveler, i found there are a lot of great web sites that can help me to plan a trip. its so brilliant that once i’m in the map, i can click on various sites and i can view the wiki-travel info or the Wikipedia site in order to discover what things you might be interested in seeing. This means that if for example your planning a family trip, you can involve everyone in the family in the travel process. You can even break down the street view or add various reviews to the road travel planner area in order to help future visitors come up with a good plan. You get a full view of the area and what it has to offer. This also gives you a chance to alter your plans before you begin.

From start to finish as i was using these planning sites, I felt as though I always had someone on my side when it came to making choices.  I accessed the information during our trip, made adjustments and even added new sites. A travel system that is interactive is much more useful than a hard copy book or a static planning trips guide that is complicated to adjust. Every place we went we had a chance to discover something new and interesting, it was much more fun than a book.
