"This life is a short journey," Freeman and Teplica observe in this unusual travel guide. "How can you make sure you fill it with the most fun and that you visit all the coolest places on earth before you pack those bags for the very last time?" Then these authors--both new media travel entrepreneurs--give suggestions for how to do so, in a modest listing of 100 of the world's wondrous events. Ranging from the participatory to the sedate, their list includes the Iditarod Sled Dog Race in Alaska; the Pageant of the Masters in Southern California; Mardi Gras in New Orleans; the World Cow Chip Throwing Championship in Beaver, Oklahoma; Carnival in Brazil; Bastille Day and the Cannes Film Festival in France; Oktoberfest in Germany; the Running of the Bulls in Spain; Yom Kippur at Israel's Western Wall; the Pushkar Camel Fair in India; the Sapporo Snow Festival in Japan; and Australia's Nude Night Surfing Contest. For each event they provide detailed explanations and specifics on how to get there, where to stay, what to eat, and how to find out more on the web. Recommended for large public libraries and libraries with extensive travel collections.--Thomas K. Fry, Univ. of Denver Lib.
