About the Edition

Travel has always played an important part in the lives of Paul and Valerie Ackerman. Their travels have taken them to all seven continents and to over 120 different countries. They are members of the Travelers Century Club, an organization of people who have visited 100 countries or more.

This book is a compilation of many of their favorite travel adventures, which include: wild life safaris in Africa, sailing in the Greek Isles, trekking in the Himalaya Mountains, searching for tigers on elephant back in Nepal, cruising up the Amazon River on a 100 year old river boat, and wading ashore on the Antarctic continent. They have seen the pyramids of Egypt, the Great Wall of China, the temples of Angkor Wat, the Taj Mahal of India and many other great wonders of the world. They have also journeyed to remote, less-traveled destinations like the tiny mountain kingdom of Bhutan, lonely Easter Island, and isolated, fly-in bush camps in Namibia.
