Playground Earth is not an ordinary travel guide. It is a unique book, bursting with games and ideas that will transform your family's travels. The games cover every aspect of travelling: choosing the destination, long journeys, sightseeing and exploring, taking photos, going to museums and galleries, waiting in line, making souvenirs, eating local food and more.

Imagine our Earth as a huge playground:
Instead of climbing frames, there are skyscrapers. Instead of see-saws, there are mountains and valleys. Instead of swings, there are mazes of streets to explore; and instead of roundabouts there are trams, cable-cars and subways.
Seeing the world from this perspective is the gateway to the most exciting, entertaining and memorable travels you can have. That's why we wrote Playground Earth, as an invitation to let everyone's inner child be free. Although it has been specifically designed for families on holiday/vacation, the games and ideas in the pages will be of benefit to anyone, anytime, anywhere.
