We all love the Internet and how this has taken research to the next level when looking for destinations around the world. But is there anything better than a handy travel book that gives you a wealth of knowledge that you can take along with you as you travel the world?

The National Geographic’s Weekend Getaways is a great book to place in your backpack as you venture off on your travels around America. With 74 mini vacations to choose from across the States, there is likely to be something in here for everyone.

So many things inspire me to travel! Reading is a biggie - blogs, travel books, magazines, even literature. Friends and family...movies...

Nice little prize Chris and a nice idea for a competition. There is only one downside, weekends never seem to last long enough!!! :-)

I've submitted my humble offering via Twitter. Wishing you every success with the competition and to all entrants.

Thanks for the giveaway! I have a pretty horrible disease that doesn't have much of a positive prognosis, so that inspires me to travel the world. I want to see and do as much as possible before my body just can't keep up anymore. And I've found that I feel the best and have the most healing experiences when I travel :)

Congratulations on your milestone! :)

What inspires me to travel? I love experiencing new things - culture, food, people, places, scenery - I caught the travel bug from my dad; he loves to go off and explore but I think I have taken it a step further and turned it into an obsession :) My other inspiration comes from books - whenever I read about a place I need to visit so it becomes another place on our list. I visualise what a place looks like, what the people will be like and what the food will taste like to the point that I then get on the internet and start looking at flights and accommodation! My long suffering husband no longer questions why we are going somewhere, he now just assumes I have read about it! :)

There are so many things that inspire me to travel the world! To see new places, cultures, learn about the history of a place, see beautiful scenery, eat yummy food...the world is just so unique and I want to experience as much of it as I can!
