My Favorite Travel Books

I love to read. Always have. It thrills me that my oldest found my old Babysitter Club books and is reading the entire series. Plus, I love to travel. Unfortunately, we can't do that much now. With winter approaching, I'm looking for some good travel books to get me excited again about getting out in the world.


My favorite travel books: Anything by Bill Bryson, especially A Sunburned Country and A Walk in the Woods

1,000 Places to Visit Before You Die by Patricia Schultz

Rick Frommer has some great guidebooks but more limited locations

Lonely Planet is our go-to travel book since it combines inspirational photos and detailed insight on locations


What I love even more are adventure books about new places or memoirs with different backgrounds from me. Some great non-fiction books and memoir with unique settings:

Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer

Born to Run by Christopher McDougall

No Shortcuts to the Top: Climbing the World's 14 Highest Peaks by Ed Viesturs

Born a Crime: Stories From a South African Childhood by Trevor Noah

Tracks: A Woman's Solo Trek Across 1700 Miles of Australian Outback by Robyn Davidson

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand

In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl's Journey to Freedom by Yeonmi Park


And more than anything, right now, I like historical fiction about different places, cultures, and times. But that's another post...
