1000 Places to See Before You Die by Patricia Schulz Flash Giveaway (Ends 6/18) U.S./Canada

1,000 Places to See Before You Die – a Fashionista Events giveaway

Patricia Schultz’s bestselling 1,000 Places to See Before You Die has recently been re-released in the form of a full-color second edition. The book, which has spawned a number of knock-offs, is so much more than just a simple travel guide. Each entry not only tells the reader why the place should be visited but also the pertinent information such as websites, phone numbers and the best time to place a visit. Plus, this new version includes 200 additional pages covering 28 new countries. The book covers everything from the Great Mosque in Mali to the Denali National Park in Alaska.

I have heard about this book before, and I had always wanted to read it (okay, not always, but for a while).  I had it on my list to read, but I never got around to it.  As I read through this book, I was happy to see that I had been to some of the places before--especially the places in England.  I was surprised that places in Yemen were even listed!  (I have been there, too.)  The photos in this book are exquisite, and the author writes from her own experience and love of traveling.  I have to say that I doubt I will ever make all these places before I die, but it did make me think that the next time I am planning to visit somewhere, I need to check out this book!  I have read several travel guides before, but this one tops them all.  It is comprehensive and easy-to-read.  I love the fact also that she tells you to do research about where you are going before you go.  Extensive research.  That is what I do anyway, so this book is right up my alley!

They have some gorgeous videos as well.  Check out this one!

I have only ever seen Egypt from a plane (on my way to Yemen).
