We couldn't find a more appropriate publication as 'book of the week'. The phrase ‘wish I was here’ is something we say, hear, write so much these days, now that we’ve been staying home so much and will have to do so in the coming weeks as well, thus not being allowed to make elaborate trips – let alone do foreign vacations. Luckily there are books like this one that ease the pain a bit and make us dream away at the most extraordinary places on this earth.
Forget all your worries.
This book ‘offers a selection of the most beautiful places in and around the water,’ we read in the preface. Over 72% of our planet is covered in water and Wish I was here (Lannoo) shows the unique places where that water comes into contact with the land. Hotels and restaurants on the waterfront, beaches by an azure blue sea, islands surrounded by an endless view of the ocean, unique places to stay on and even under water. These all give a very special view of our world and although it may not be possible to visit them right away, a little daydreaming certainly can't hurt. Be inspired by travel journalists, bloggers and photographers who take you to the most paradisiacal destinations. Surfers talk about their special relationship with water. Underwater photos show the splendour but also the fragility of the fauna and flora below sea level.
The more than 200 pages full of inspiring images make you forget all your worries. Enjoying life, even from the comfort of your own living room, that is what this publication offers. Buy the book today (you can via this link) and start dreaming about or even planning your next trip! Header Image: Laucala Island, Fiji © Laucala Island
