Reading is, in itself, a form of travel. Any bookworm can agree – often a novel set in an distant land or about an exotic culture can transport you instantly into another world. Our new travel collection is a nod to that amazing feeling books can give us. We’ve coupled some of our favorite travel narratives and memoirs with Lonely Planet guidebooks to those very same places. Prepare to be inspired (to take a vacation).
