Travel from Lonely Planet

I’ve never been much of a traveller, I’ve had no desire to go around the world. I think I am actually afraid of how huge our planet is and of wandering around too far from home. Lately thought I have felt a desire to know more about this world so books can help me imagine what it’s like.

I have also decided that if I am to go abroad before it’s too late it will have to be soon. So, I am in the process of ordering my very first passport and I hope to be travelling further afield for the first time next year.

Books

I was thrilled to learn that the Lonely Planet book shop was having a flash sale this weekend.

You can buy one and get one free on everything. I have a collection of books already from Lonely Planet. Books about the UK for me and lots of fascinating books for the kids. You can see some of my kid’s books and games reviews over on my other blog.

I’m going to show you just a short collection of fabulous books you could be choosing from. And the buy one get one free even applies to the books on sale already…extra bargain!!

Normandy and D Day Beaches.

Now, if I’m going abroad for the first time I’m not wanting to go to far. One place that both myself and my husband would love to visit is Normandy.

Quiz Book

But everyone knows that Lonely Planet sell travel guides, you can buy for practically anywhere in the world. But they do other books too, like this fabulous quiz book.

Pit your worldly wits against family and friends, or just challenge yourself, with this ultimate travel trivia book. With head-scratching questions on everything from geography and culture to history, wildlife and transport, it’s a fun and challenging test for all ages – and the perfect addition to any trip.
Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travel Quiz Book is split into three sections: Easy, Medium and Hard, with 100 quizzes in total, each featuring 20+ questions that will confound adults and kids alike. Perfect for social get-togethers, rainy days and family trips, this fun and illustrated book also makes a great gift!

Learning a Language

Whether you want to learn a new language or just want to pick up a few phrases, you can get a book to help you from Lonely Planet.

Kids Books

I love the Lonely Planet kids books, the offer the whole world to your kids in words and pictures. As I’ve already said, I’ve review quite a few of them with my kids.

If you were asked to tell someone on the other side of the world about yourself, where would you start?
Perhaps you’d mention your favourite hobbies, the pranks you play on your family, or what you want to be when you grow up. Would you include a selfie or a family photo? A cute snap of your puppy or that awesome shot of you playing your favourite sport?
In this fascinating and fun collection, 84 children from incredibly diverse backgrounds share their stories and photos of what’s unique about their lives – from weather, local festivals and hobbies to their favourite sports and food. These personal portraits also reveal the many things children have in common, no matter where they’re from.
Discover what it’s like to live in an orphanage in Zambezi, by a remote fjord in Greenland, on a cattle ranch in Australia, high up in the Himalaya mountains in Nepal, at an eco-lodge in Costa Rica, and much more.

World’s Strangest Creepy Crawlies

I love the diversity of the books you can get for children. Take this one for instance.

Enter the weird and wonderful world of creepy-crawlies. Our animal experts have unearthed 40 of the planet’s most bizarre species and ranked them in order of their oddness! With jaw-dropping facts and amazing photos, we reveal each creature’s seriously strange characteristics and the unusual ways they hunt, eat or defend themselves.
They’re sometimes hard to spot, but there are a mind-boggling 10 billion billion bugs on the planet. Inside World’s Strangest Creepy-Crawlies, kids will discover the tiny terror that blows itself up to save its friends, a creature so well disguised even its own species can’t see it, and a giant spider the size of a dinner plate. And with our ‘strange-o-meter’, they can compare each animal based on its creepiness, fight factor and superpowers!

These books make fabulous Christmas or birthday presents too. (Just saying!)
