Love a good story?

Me too!

Here are some of my favourite adventures from the last 10 years:

📖 Best Travel Books

The Lonely Planet Guides are simply the best books for huge amounts of information in a small space. We grab one for every country we visit and use them to build our routes. The only downside is the lack of imagery, so if you are a more visual person I would suggest the Eyewitness Travel Guides as they contain a lot more photos, maps an illustrations along with great info.

The World forms the basis of my country list. It has the highlights of every country on Earth and never fails to inspire me!

When it comes to travel writers Paul Theroux and Bill Bryson are my favourites. Paul’s ability to describe characters on his journies is simply incredible and Bill is just hilarious! I have visited many places based just on the stories these two have told. Start with The Great Railway Bazaar for Paul Theroux and Notes From A Small Island for Bill Bryson.
