Books to Foster Your Love of Travel

Good Morning!!!

I have another book post for you. Today I have selected 4 books that have really fostered my love of travel. I hope that you can look at these and it can help foster your love of travel. I love travel books because it lets me "travel" without leaving home. I can travel within the pages of the different books.


1) The Travel Book

I got this book for Christmas this year. I have looked at it at the library before but now that I have my own copy I have been adding post-its to different pages that really interest me. Definitely a must have for a traveller or someone who wants to travel.


2) Ten Years A Nomad

I love this book. I follow Matthew Kepnes on Instagram and I have his book How to travel the world on $50 a Day, which is also a really good book.

"New York Times bestselling author of How to Travel the World on $50 a Day, Matthew Kepnes knows what it feels like to get the travel bug. After meeting some travelers on a trip to Thailand in 2005, he realized that living life meant more than simply meeting society's traditional milestones, such as buying a car, paying a mortgage, and moving up the career ladder. Inspired by them, he set off for a year-long trip around the world before he started his career. He finally came home after ten years. Over 500,000 miles, 1,000 hostels, and 90 different countries later, Matt has compiled his favorite stories, experiences, and insights into this travel manifesto. Filled with the color and perspective that only hindsight and self-reflection can offer, these stories get to the real questions at the heart of wanderlust. Travel questions that transcend the basic "how-to," and plumb the depths of what drives us to travel ― and what extended travel around the world can teach us about life, ourselves, and our place in the world.

Ten Years a Nomad is for travel junkies, the travel-curious, and anyone interested in what you can learn about the world when you don’t have a cable bill for a decade or spend a month not wearing shoes living on the beach in Thailand."


3) Eat Pray Love

I loved this book. I wrote a review for this book a while back as well as for the subsequent movie. If you want to know my thoughts on it you can find it on the blog.

The reason this is on my list of books to foster travel is because this book really makes me want to do what Elizabeth Gilbert did during the book.


4) Around the World in 60 Seconds

I'm sure you have heard of Nas Daily. He is very popular on Facebook for his 60 second videos. I started following him about 2.5 years ago and when he announced he was releasing a book it was immediately on my wish list. I have my own copy right now and while I haven't finished the book completely yet but what I have read is absolutely amazing.

"In 2016, Nuseir Yassin quit his job to travel for 1,000 consecutive days. But instead of the usual tourist traps, Nas set out to meet real people, see the places they call home, and discover what unites all of us living on this beautiful planet―from villages in Africa and slums in India, to the high-rises of Singapore and the deserts of Australia. While he journeyed from country to country, Nas uploaded a single 60-second video per day for his Nas Daily Facebook following to highlight the amazing, terrifying, inspiring and downright surprising sh*t happening all over the world. Thirteen million followers later, Nas Daily has become the most immersive travel experience ever captured, and finally shows us what we’ve all been looking for: each other.

AROUND THE WORLD IN 60 SECONDS is Nas’ unpredictable 1,000-day world tour in book form. At times a striking portrait of the most uncharted places in the world, at others a touching exploration of the human heart, this collection of life-affirming stories and breathtaking photographs changes how we think about humanity and community and invites us all on a journey to see the world, and each other, anew."


Hope you enjoyed today's post. Have you read any of these books? Do you have travel books that you love?
