  With its superb photography, authoritative reporting and strong environmental ethos, National Geographic has always been geared toward travelers, not tourists; exploration and adventure over shopping and casual sight seeing. Whether you’re prepared to strap on a backpack and trek to Peru, NG’s gorgeously photographed Journeys of a Lifetime: 500 of the World's Greatest Trips is a wonderful coffee table book to tease the imagination. Structured into nine journey types – by road, by rail, in search of culture, on foot, etc – Journeys serves as precursor to getting lost in the world. Once you decide where to go, check out NG’s city and country specific titles and get packing.
