100 places you will never visit (the world’s most secret locations) — Daniel Smith

Sin duda este es un interesante libro que en forma de pequeños teletipos nos identifica 100 lugares en los cuales el acceso de visita es imposible pese a las facilidades y ansias de viajar. Es un libro interesante y que se lee fácil

To my way of thinkin’ is a good book in order to secret locations around the world as paintbrushes in order to a cool and entertain book about places hidden to human beings.
There are times when our world seems never to have been more open. The age of cheap air travel has allowed us the opportunity to reach almost any spot on the planet within a matter of hours. Meanwhile, the inexorable rise of social networking has blurred the boundaries between our public faces and private lives like never before. Indeed, Mark Zuckerberg—Facebook’s billionaire founder—has regularly spoken of his dream of accomplishing “a social mission—to make the world more open and connected.” Then there are the countless politicians and corporate spokesmen who constantly reassure us of their transparency and the important role that we all have in our big, open society.
