50 places of a lifetime
Once in a Lifetime Trips: The Worlds 50 Most Extraordinary and Memorable Travel Experiences by Chris SantellaFly-fish in the virgin waters of the Chilean fjords, arriving by helicopter; navigate Alaska on a boat as luxurious as a four-star hotel but small enough to sail where the big cruise ships can’t; embark on a private-jet tour to the great opera houses in Europe with behind-the-scenes passes: experience the classic links of the British Open. Once in a Lifetime Trips is a trove of ideas for travels that are unique, decadent, and off the beaten path.
Each trip is captured through stunning photography and an essay based on in-depth interviews with experts who have firsthand knowledge of the destination and itinerary. Once in a Lifetime Trips goes way beyond what a standard guide offers: these trips are intended to be distinctive events that you will remember for the rest of your life. Chris Santella distills each experience and describes just what makes it extraordinary–whether it’s the culture of the place, a venue’s incredible isolation, or the unique amenities available to the traveler. Organized by destination–on the ocean, on an island, in the jungle, in the mountains and the desert, in the country, in the city, in the sky–Once in a Lifetime Trips is as much a vicarious and thrilling reading experience as it is a source of ideas and inspiration for anyone in search of a remarkable journey.

The app breaks the destinations into five sections such as "Urban Spaces" and "Paradise Found," with ten locations in each section.

There is also has a user's guide, which is useful to those new to iPad magazine interfaces. Swipe left to turn pages, swipe down to read more about each place.
