Friday Coffee Table Book Suggestion

We just got a look at Rough Guides’ tome of a coffee table book Make the Most of Your Time on Earth. In addition to sporting a bit of a foreboding title, Make the Most is bursting at the seams with event and activity suggestions around the world. Looking at the compendium’s European offerings, we were pleased to see, in no particular order, the following trip suggestions: Pembrokeshire hikes; Scottish Highland Games; surfing in Tarifa; mountain walks in Madeira; taking the Lake Mývatn waters; overeating in Bologna; and bunker spotting in Durrës.

You get the picture. Make the Most is glossy and packed with trip suggestions as well as listings-driven “Miscellany” section at the close of each chapter. Just don’t plan to take it with you when you travel. It weighs approximately three tons.
