I spent a loooong time in the bookstore perusing this book, drooling, slowly turning the pages - and I put it on my Christmas list. No one bought it for me, so I'm buying it for myself. If you can walk and have the wherewithal to travel a bit (time and money help), this book makes it possible to easily plan a very special vacation lasting from 1-2 weeks.
Best of all, you don't have to camp out if you don't want to: there's a hotel, hostel, or inn waiting for you at the end of each day's journey. And you don't have to lug 40 pounds of gear on your back; all you carry is a day pack with your lunch, a jacket and rain gear, water, sunscreen, etc. Your luggage is driven on ahead and will be awaiting your arrival at that snug little inn where you can put your feet up, have a beer or glass of wine, and wait for dinner to be ready.
The walks are all over the world: Morocco, England, Chile, Greece, the US, etc. The trips range from easy to challenging. The directions, maps, and details appear to be excellent, tho of course I haven't checked them out thru actual usage yet. But I will, I will.
