Cape Verde ranked #3 in Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2011 guide

Lonely Planet, a British travel magazine, ranked Cape Verde as the #3 world travel destination for 2011. Yes, I know that's old news, but what is new is that their Best in Travel 2011 travel guide is available FREE in Apple's iBooks store from June 1, 2011 till June 14, 2011 after which it will cost about $10.

In case you missed the travel guide when it was first published in November 2010, here is what Lonely Planet has to say about Cape Verde, "Cape Verdeans may have known about the wider world forever, but it seems that the wider world is only just opening its eyes to Cape Verde." And, "Cape Verde looks and feels as if it were born of a Caribbean mother and an African father."

It describes the most bizarre experience on the island of Fogo thus, "relish the excitement of sleeping in a hotel built inside the crater of a live and brooding volcano!" You can read more about Fogo in my earlier post.

The guide offers a snippet of Cape Verde and nine other top travel destinations in its 213 color pages. So what are you waiting for? Whip out your iPads and iPhones and hurry to the iBooks store!
