Praise For…

"Everyday Adventures... offers some really neat way to make every day exciting and to learn more about your hometown along the way. Each double page spread offers you an adventure along with the instructions on how to complete the task and the level of complexity to do it. Some of my favourites are Adventure No. 11, Pint-Sized Tour Guide, which I have done on a number of occasions. It’s quite enjoyable as my niece, who may have less of a sense of direction than I do, plays navigator, while my son and nephew pipe their opinions from the back seat. Make sure you have a full tank of gas and be open to suggestions including lots of food stops."Book Time

"Everyday Adventures is one of those books you come across that totally changes the way you look at something... Recently, I realized there might be a different way to explore the world while I traveled and even while at home. This fun book Everyday Adventures from Lonely Planet will help you see travel differently. The ideas for adventure within this book are fun and simple and often they cost absolutely nothing at all but time... Everyday Adventures is a book all about keeping the spirit of exploration and discovery alive even when we aren’t on trips... This charming and fun book reminds us that the reason we travel is not to find the traveler spirit, but because of it... Everyday Adventures helps people recapture that travel spirit with chapters devoted to different ways that we can explore the world around us and feel like travelers in our own backyard."Thrifty Momma's Tips

"Even if you live in the most beautiful city in the world, it's easy to forget that your own home has lots to offer. We're always vying to skip town and explore. But adventure doesn't have to involve plane tickets and expensive journeys across the world. Lonely Planet's Everyday Adventures will help the wanderluster in your life satisfy some of their urge to explore by discovering new and exciting things in their own city. And who doesn't need a little nudge like that?"The Travel Channel
