As the rains started to drench our roads and our souls, vacation planning is in full swing – with family, friends, solo backpacking or romantic getaways. No matter who is your companion a book will always serve the purpose of a true partner. In the words of Stephen King “Books are a uniquely portable Magic” and thus wherever you are heading one book or the other will guide your path. I would suggest the books based on my experiences and it has nothing to do with the chronological order here. I would try to correlate the books based on the type of traveler.
1. Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert – For a mere casual traveler, it will serve as a dose of smile and amusement. It helps to understand why travelling is not a luxury , it must be a priority in everyone’s life.
2. The Life of Pi by Yann Martel – If you are an adrenaline junkie you could not miss this. The adventure of a guy in a boat with a tiger is worth your time in travel.
3. The Wild Places by Robert Macfarlane – If you are a thrill seeker you will drool for this book where the hero traverses through all kinds of wilderness.
