book of unforgettable journeys

there's this book that i've been reading lately which i too recommend to those who enjoy traveling. a book that features some of the most memorable journeys compiled by Conde Nast Traveler, entitled Book of Unforgettable Journeys.Indonesia has 173 active volcanoes while Japan also claims to have 108 active volcanoes while the Philippines have only 22 active volcanoes yet Simon Winchester best shared his experience of climbing Mount Mayon and Pinatubo in this book. the book features 21 other travel stories written pre-eminent writers. my other favorite stories in this book includes Iceland - The Loneliest Planet on Earth by Pico Iyer and Tanzania - Where the Wild Things Are by Philip Gourevitch.

now available on major bookstores.

Very interesting. I been to one of the dormant volcano in Indonesia. Up the volcano we could smell sulphur, that is why there are no snakes around volcano according to the guide. Cannot remember the name of the volcano and not sure if it had erupted.
