If you are looking for a good travel book to read, then look no further. Here is my selection of my 3 top travel books.
A year in Provence by Peter Mayle:
A year in Provence is a hilarious description about what is it really like to live in France. Written by Peter Mayle, it explains his first year of a dream-life in Provence, trying to move with his wife to an old farmhouse.
The Shadow of the Sun by Ryszard Kapuscinksi:
Polish writer and journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski wrote this extraordinary description of Africa, not as a group of nations or geographically, but as a vibrant land of peoples, culture and encounters. It is a remarkable portrait of the continent.
Journey to Portugal. In Pursuit of Portugal’s History and Culture by José Saramago:
Forget your tourist guide and road map, and discover with José Saramago an extraordinary journey, brilliantly written, where Portugal comes alive.
I love the following quote from the book: “The journey is never over. Only travellers come to an end…. The end of one journey is simply the start of another.“
