Today is Sunday at home, morning at 2:15 am, I'm still trying to browse on the internet looking for information about an exotic places. I tried also looking for something on google.com, well... An article brought me to an interesting book!
The book was published by National Geographic entitled "100 Countries, 5,000 Ideas: Where to Go, When to Go, What to See, What to Do" and I further browsing and got information about the book with 400 pages contains lots of practical advice for anyone who likes traveling to various places in the world, especially for people in the first time trip. Interesting!
I was intending to buy it later and before it realized I was trying to guess about what's inside there. Indeed, no doubt with all the advice about travel and where anything worthy and interesting places to visit, but there is always something that made me not want to buy it now, because sometimes a situation which has changed after a few years later.
There's always a lot of places in the world of options to choose from as an alternatives, for example in Asia there are some interesting options, such as Vietnam, India, Nepal, or even to my country in Indonesia, who has a lot of special places to go - not only just Bali, such as Gili Trawangan for example with their rich coral reefs or their special uniqueness culinary.
The places as many articles I have written in this blog, and certainly many more articles that have been waiting for publication, where most are describing special places who have missed by the big media or the audience of travel in the world.
I know there are some issues developing about my country that makes a lot of travel connoisseurs avoid or select a country not as a main choice, but because they do not know how the exotic places that can be achieved.
No doubt, I think even this book in several parts on pages 164-171 says Indonesia is also attractive options, such as witnessing the race of cows maybe difficult to find elsewhere in the world, as an example only.
All of it's are interesting and always a lot place for people who want to travel!
