Many of us want to see the world and discover places, cultures, nature, or food that will surprise us. Ideally, we’ll even surprise ourselves with how much we can be affected by such journeys. But where should we go when we want to experience something new or get away from it all? Which places will we always remember? Which moments will we never forget?
Once in a Lifetime Vol. 2 presents a diverse range of unparalleled destinations for those longing for extraordinary travel experiences, whether they are seeking an adventure or a retreat. Some will be attracted to cities—the urban flair of Vienna, the bustle of Tokyo, the rich history of Marrakech—and their sumptuous hotels. Others will want to be pampered at a wellness resort; find peace and quiet in an isolated mountain hut; fulfill a childhood dream of going on a safari; learn how to make wine; or see, hear, and smell a tropical rainforest.
The selection of accommodations in Once in a Lifetime Vol. 2 is enticing yet accessible. Many of them feature offerings suited to various budgets. The focus is on highly individual service, often from wonderful hosts who would rather cater to four guests than four hundred. The architecture, interiors, and creative details of the included examples also contribute to each destination’s charm.
Once in a Lifetime Vol. 2 celebrates exceptional hotels, lodges, and other locations. Whether readers use the book to plan their next trip or to simply enjoy a marvelous visual journey from the comfort of their own homes, it reminds us that there are a host of places out there that are worth the trip—and that our personal paradise might be closer than we might think.
