The Grand Tour was the traditional trip of the Polar Regions undertaken by mainly upper-class European young men of means. The pursuit of this goal is now available to millions. From authors Ellen and Peter Boer comes a precious book that incorporates their experiences and knowledge about travelling, having seen so much all over the world. Grand Tourist does not only share great venues and destinations, but also injects wonderful insight valuable in planning a perfect trip.

When Peter asked Ellen to marry him some fifty years ago, she asked what he thought their life would be like. He answered, “I will show you the world.” Their own Grand Tour has taken them to seven continents and over a hundred thirty countries and to favorite sites many dozens of times. Their love of history, geography and wildlife has led them to explore the Polar Regions, the African savanna, and the ruins of great civilizations. According to them both, the key to happy travel is motivation. Sorting out one’s goals is the foundation of a successful trip.

This book aims at providing the reader a perspective on what the world holds for a curious traveler, covering a significant portion of popular sites but attempts to put them in the perspective of modern history, earlier history, technology, economics, and geography. That may help readers order their priorities, but their own research and interests will carry them yet further. The authors also include both the advantages and disadvantages of travelling, imparting helpful tips to alleviate the difficulties and possible obstacles that they may encounter-like the choice of hotels, budget cost, foods and transportation concerns.

Highly informative and very insightful, Grand Tourist does not only provide readers with helpful guides and tips to plan a perfect trip, but their experiences also give the readers a glimpse into the fulfilling journey of their travels all over the world.
