In July of 2007, Nalynn Dolan Caine started a unique writing journey that will last for three and a half years. What started with just one article, in the end became a book full of emotions and love for beautiful places and people around the world. "Places to go" is a collection of travel articles written from July 2007 to December 2010, a story about almost 120 main destinations with many more small gems: from distant romantic beaches to street restaurants and smiling people.
This book can be roughly divided in four sections. Roughly because the main idea is the same, just the presentation is different. In the first part there are longer articles about towns, places and countries, while the second part is a collection of shorter articles about small gems that have something in common. The third part is a series of articles about magnificent buildings, and just like every journey should end with a good drink in a fine restaurant, the last part of “Places to go” ends with restaurants around the world.
"Places to go" is not a usual travel book with "go there, do that" information, this is a book written with passion and love for every destination. If you weren't at the destinations described here you will enjoy, and if you were you will still find something you didn't see before.
"The writing style is fascinating, a mix of story-telling and tourist guide speech, with a twist in almost every sentence. Sometimes I had a feeling that Great Bard himself wrote down a sentence or two, but all with a good measure. "Places to Go" serves triple causes, I dare to say. First, it can be a welcomed guide to a destination you are about to visit. Second, it can be read as a complete work, not dividing it into pieces. And third, it is a reminder that writing gems are just around the corner, we just need to put a bit bigger effort to find them. I would love to read "Places to Go II". I would really love it." - An excerpt from The New York Times review.
