The book is lively with its descriptions of places, interactions with people, the lifestyle, and culture, but what I liked most about it is the way the author has created a sense of oneness by looking as the world as one whole. The detailed descriptions coupled with illustrations give readers wonderful insights about the places visited by the author, and also capture the diversity of places and their cultures beautifully. Love traveling? Love to learn about new places? Then this book will definitely entertain by speaking about the amazing variety that the world has to offer everyone. The quote ‘Collect only memories, not things’ (Anon) works perfectly here and is what makes this book memorable to readers.
