This really is more for browsing and getting ideas than planning. It is chock full of ideas with just enough information to pique your interest. You'll need other resources once you've decided on an adventure. The index is by country and the reader must flip through pages to find all activities in one country. Having said that, it introduced me to many travel opportunities I might not have known about otherwise! My bucket list is growing!
