Photos from some amazing places (only one photo from Canada). But the essays written by notable writers like Paul Theroux and Michael Ondaatje don't give enough context or add inspiration. Nice to look at, but I found I flipped the pages pretty fast. Maybe a book with fewer destinations and more narrative would have worked better?
