Not only that Reading books in general is one of the most contenting activities, it opens the reader mind, and expands the reader’s horizons. It enables people to travel by their imaginary wings and experience adventures and new lands.
And indeed, many people love to travel abroad. And lots of people actually do so. Travelling abroad lets you meet different cultures, different people, and different landscapes.
However, to exploit the maximum joy from your journey, careful planning is required. Poor planning may result in very unhappy travel. One must carefully plan his/her travel, specifically if this involves travel abroad with a whole family, i.e. with kids. You need to coordinate your flights too.
People do plan their travel abroad by seeking advices from their friends, and from those who already experienced a similar travel. And last but not least, most people that I know, do approach tourist books for proper planning and study.
Tour books are most essential for planning. Actually, when I plan a trip abroad, most of the information is fetched from tourist books. Tourist books relates to several aspect of the travel: transportation, food, accommodations, shopping and entertainment. In particular, tourist books provide essential information such as recommendations for kids’ attractions, such as water parks, opening hours, code for behavior, reasonable costs, and so on.
A wonderful quote, by Joseph Addison, succeeds to compose the reading importance and the reading joy. The quote runs as follows:
“Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered from generation to generation as presents to posterity of those who are yet unborn”
