This giveaway is for $90 worth of DK Eyewitness Travel Guide books! The giveaway details are below this review.

Ten years ago I found myself awkwardly stumbling around the cobblestone streets of Prague. I was lost and alone. I said to myself “this Lonely Planet guidebook is so confusing…there’s got to be something better!”

Well, the travel gods must have heard my cries, because a couple years later I found what I was looking for, the amazing DK Eyewitness Travel guides.

These travel guides are full of all kinds of useful information, including hundreds of color photographs, three-dimensional drawings, country histories, building floor plans, detailed neighborhood maps, as well as time lines, charts, and even hotels & restaurants. I’m a very visual person, so illustrations are good. Each guide paints a complete picture of the country, and will help immerse you into the culture.

If you love to travel like me, or even if you are just dreaming of traveling, you’ve got to check out my favorite travel guides! Click here to browse through all of DK’s colorful travel guides.

    “DK Eyewitness Travel Guide: Rome” is the book that gets me the most excited about traveling. I took three Roman History classes in college and have not yet had the chance to visit. So, that is the top one for me.
