These Books will ignite the inner travel bug in you to go out more.
The idea of travelling doesn’t just come by planning about it, first, you need to feel inspired about travelling. You need to have that compelling feeling of the need to travel to a new place and explore new things and learn new things. All of this comes with an inspiring atmosphere, in order to be inspired you need to have inspiring things around you.
While for some it’s music, for some it’s movies and for some, it’s books, that transcends them into the mood and need of travelling. Even when you can’t travel because of a busy schedule or something else, books help you in getting out of your mundane life and instantly lands you in any kind of mystical place you want to be. Along with that, there are times when a book that you’re reading is set in a different place and the entire description by the author just pushes you into adding that specific place into your list of places to visit or see. Eat, Pray and Love did that to me, the first time I read the book, I was immediately compelled to make it a point that once in this lifetime, I would visit Italy and get myself a hostel room, write whatever I like and have a lot of lunch sessions in one of the cafes in Italy.
So, get your checklist out and start jotting down the places in these books that you’ll immediately want to visit. And for the reading part, you can either do it before finalising the place or maybe, just in the plane. Sounds cool, right?
