For the content of my book I decided to break down the destination content into sections which are detailed below. I did this in order for the audience to get a well rounded view of what to experience in that destination and to cater to everyones tastes.

Bucket list — the main attraction or sight to see within that city, this can take the form of a quote or phrase e.g                          "No.1 - Gaze at the northern lights"

Helpful phrases — A collection of simple phrases to use when travelling, like hello + goodbye.

Native dish — The dish that represents that country or recommended restaurant

Accommodation — A reasonable priced hotel / hostel within the place

Hidden Gem — An alternative place to visit or experience like and excursion or entertainment.

I then researched into each destination individually using online sources which are linked to the words and the books I gathered from my primary research to STA.
