Few places in the world compare to Brazil when it comes to birding

Few places in the world compare to Brazil when it comes to birding. The bird population of Brazil is so abundant and diverse that enthusiasts will often return over and over to different parts of the country. The Pantanal wetlands is a massive wilderness paradise and is home to as many as 650 species of birds. As someone who grew up on boats, I find that trying to write about the best places for boating is somewhat contradictory, because in my experience, any time I can get out on the water immediately qualifies as the best place for boating! Simple as that. Well, not so simple, because in the end, it gets down to your definition of boating.

There was too much rehash of old information out there and not the answers I wanted. For example, it is interesting to think of substituting Western State Fall Color for East Coast Color, but they are vastly different trips. Under East Coast Color I had hoped for THE BEST COLOR CRUISE (there are many on the market --Crystal, Holland etc), or the best Inn, and so on. Or out Westto suggest a unique activity. When analyzing European River Cruises there should be specific ship recommendations. It would have been nice to learn how to book ships to see the wildlife and birds on the various Falkland Islands and South Georgia Islands FROM THE FALKLANDS -- supposedly substantially cheaper than from the U.S.
Having been there we would like to do it again. I could list many, many omissions and differet opinions about places in this book.

Mostly we felt the ideas were pedestrian. We travel alot and the ideas here seemed pitched more to those who don't travel all that much. Wen you name a book the way this book is named, you should really come up with the goods.

Still wonderful for ideas -- three years into using it.

Sure, it is superficial. You can always get more information from dozens of sources.

But to break out of boxes -- give it a shot.

This book is impossible to summarize, but a quick review of the table of contents, which is wonderfully interactive on my iPhone, is almost certain to kick up one or a dozen or maybe a hundred different places and activities that would be fun and educational to visit.

Greenberg travels over 400,000 miles a year, publishes regularly in "The New York Times", and maintains a very useful website with daily and weekly emails, usually with interesting, but always current, content. Best of all, if you find Greenberg in a mistake, post a comment, and he invariably gets back to you within a short period of time.

Here's a short example of what you can expect, in this case Signature Dishes:

"So what's a signature dish? You know how chefs like to describe their last meal? We'll Peter doesn't have just one meal. Nor does he have just one restaurant. Instead, he has favorite signature dishes -- individual dishes at restaurants that represent his favorite foods from all around the world.

"Smoke Gouda & Artichoke Dip, Pumpkin Hill Bistro & Vineyard. In Aurora, New York, head to Pumpkin Hill Bistro & Vineyard for this seductive blend of four cheeses, spinach and roasted artichokes. It's served bubbling hot with toasted pita.

"Corned Beef Hash, Hash House a Go Go. In Las Vegas, Nevada, it's good to start the day with a hearty breakfast with every single option. Go off the strip to try all the hashes. And as you can see the portions are huge.

"Sesame Calamari Wrapped Around Blue Crab, Sushi Sasabune. Here's the thing, you can't just walk into Sushi Sasabune in Honolulu, Hawaii and order this dish. The waiter, who are wearing shirts that say "trust me", order for you and tell you how to eat what they bring. Peter's highlight on the menu, sesame calamari wrapped around blue crab.

"Caviar Pizza, Nino's Positano Pizza. In Manhattan, you have to order Nino's caviar 24 hours in advance. That's because this pie is topped with $1,000 worth of caviar (four different kinds), creme fraiche, sliced lobster tail, and salmon roe. It averages out to $125 a slice.

"Black Bottom Pie, Weidmann's Restaurant. Thought to be Mississippi's oldest restaurant, Weidmann's has the best black bottom pie. The secret is the crust made from crushed gingersnaps and butter, which is then topped with a layer of chocolate and then a bourbon-flavored filling."

Now, food may not be your thing -- the table of contents has many other delights. And, if food is your thing, you may not want to travel to Aurora, New York, Las Vegas, Nevada, Honolulu, Hawaii, Manhattan and Mississippi just for the food. But you can probably figure out how to make your own version of these delights if you have the culinary skills -- and if you are lucky, get recipes direct from the restaurants.

The key is that staying at home or on the road there are dozens and dozens of inspirations here, and many practical bits of information as well.

Bon Voyage!

I ordered this book on 11/1/15 and i didn't get it until 11/24/15 cause it didn't qualify for prime shipping! I bought this book to be used for Fosters of Hope. To be shared and talked about with other people and let them learn about other peoples' life experiences. we are not alone, there are other people out there going thru things that are worse than ours no matter how bad things get. This book is a good reminder of different life experiences and whether we would do them or not, its a good learning tool about what is out there for you to experience.

Way to state the obvious. Go to California for wine. Kentucky for whiskey. Wisconsin for cheese. Scotland for Scotch. Germany for beer seriously?
