This allowed me to experience the entire world while still living in my small hometown. (This was before the internet, ya’ll).
Since we’ve been in South America, I’ve been virtually traveling all over the world through the books that are still a very big part of my life, and Warren and I have started reading the same books for the first time in our relationship – it’s a built-in book club in our hotel room.
These are not travel books per se, just books set in places we’d like to visit someday.
That made us think you might like to read some of the books we’ve enjoyed so much. In fact, we’re even open to the idea of a virtual book club if enough people are interested.
As you decide to curl up and relax over your holidays, pick up one of these books for yourself or for a friend who likes to travel. All of them have been out for a while, so if you are saving for a trip you can easily get them from your library or used bookstore. If you buy them from Amazon through our link, you will be contributing to our book fund (thanks in advance).
And if you are interested in a virtual bookclub, let us know in the comments. You’ll have to bring your own wine, but we’ll still have a good time!
We have created a page on our site with the books we have enjoyed, separated by the continent they take place. Feel free to browse through the list here.
