A Traveler's Bookshelf
Traveling somewhere? Read about it first!
Before I travel anywhere I enjoy reading about the destination as a way to orient myself. I'll read travel guides, biographies, fiction, style guides, history, cookbooks and even children's books that discuss my desired destination. After reading a selection of works I feel better prepared to really appreciate the location I am visiting.
Here is a peek into my bookshelf. Perhaps you can find something here to help you enjoy the destination as well. Peruse with pleasure and enjoy being an armchair traveler or go buy that ticket and get to traveling!
