15 Inspiring Travel Books You Have to Read
Looking for Lovedu: Days and Nights in Africa, by Ann Jones (2001)
As if a road trip from Tangier to Cape Town isn’t enough, Jones also successfully seeks out the Lovedu tribe, a people known for their feminine principals. And you thought that epic journey to Miami for Spring Break was the ultimate road trip…
The Old Patagonian Express: By Train through the Americas, by Paul Theroux (1979)
Another epic journey that will put your summer backpacking the comforts of Europe to shame. Theroux travels from Boston to the tip of Argentina via rail. His curmudgeon will entertain and make you feel guilty for complaining about the guy snoring in the hostel bunk above you.
The Panama Hat Trail: A Journey from South America, by Tom Miller (1986)
Yes, another book on Ecuador. Why? Because I studied there and grant myself certain liberties as a writer of these lists. Miller uses something as trivial as the creation of a hat to take readers on a journey into the depths of South America.
