I normally would not write a review about a bookstore, but Travel Bug in Santa Fe, New Mexico deserves some publicity. Located in a "plain vanilla" strip center a few blocks from the Plaza, Travel Bug is a treasure chest filled with guidebooks and maps. I counted fourteen floor to ceiling cases filled with books on practically every country in the world. The shop even had guides on Arctic travel or visiting dangerous countries experiencing civil war.

The usual travel series, along with unusual publications, are all available. I was impressed with how many countries were featured.

Separate sections in the shop include entire cases of language books. Shelves of travel DVDs and videos are also available for rental.

Coffee and pastries, along with tables to relax and flip through books and maps, add to the ambiance of the shop. Access to wireless internet is also provided.

The shop has an international feel the moment you walk through the door. Inflatable globes hang from the ceiling and dozens of magnets from flags around the world are tacked below the register. A bilingual pull-off calendar at the front desk includes phrases in both French and English.

Travel Bug is the best travel bookshop I have seen. Even though it's only January, I already bought some unique guides as Christmas presents. I felt like a child in a candy store and could have spent hours browsing.
