BOOK REVIEW – SPAIN (A LONELY PLANET GUIDEBOOK)

BOOK REVIEW – SPAIN (A LONELY PLANET GUIDEBOOK)

Spain (a Lonely Planet Guidebook) by Gregor Clark and others. 

I’m hoping to visit Spain next year so, of course, borrowed the latest version of Lonely Planet’s book about the country.  The book did not disappoint and has helped me plan my prospective trip, with maps of each region, and reviews of places to eat, sleep or visit. The information about culture, history, music, cuisine, and politics was interesting and bound to be useful during my holiday. The suggested itineraries for tailored trips are of various lengths of time; such handy information for short visits! 

The comprehensive guide I borrowed provides commentary on all regions of Spain, delving into where and when to go, what to eat, budget-conscious accommodation, places to see, and much more. There is a Survival Guide section, advice on the best way to avoid crowds and trouble spots, a small section of useful phrases, a list of embassies and consulates, and a pull-out map of Barcelona. 

Lonely Planet Spain is just one of the travel guidebooks that can be borrowed from Gladstone Regional Libraries. Why not visit one of our branches and find out what we have to offer?
