“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” — Author Unknown

Today I’m gathering together all of the well loved Lonely Planet travel guide books from my bookcase to start planning our next family vacation. I’ll also be researching online and ordering new ones to explore destinations on our bucket list.

Let’s face it, planning the perfect trip for everyone can be stressful. Guide books are my go-to for the most valuable and researched information at the tip of my fingers. I love using them to plan and especially to have on hand while we travel. The thumbed through, stained and dog-eared books I’ve found on the shelf are bringing back a flood of the warm fuzzies from vacation memories.

I’m excited to explore with the kids this summer and continue to create memories that will last a lifetime. It’s time to delve in and do some planning!
