Our traveling family is never far from a stack of books. Those books provide a wealth of information, as well as entertainment, to enhance each journey.
We want to share some our favorite travel books with you—books that we have actually read and think that you will enjoy too. Our site will allow you to seamlessly purchase any of our listed books through amazon.com, although we also encourage you to find them in your community library or local bookstore.
Our Top 9 Favorite Travel Books—When we're not on the road, our nightstands almost always contain books about someone else’s adventure. Many of these books speak to our hearts or challenge our way of thinking. Others ignite a fire to experience a particular place for ourselves. We have revisited many of our favorites and have chosen the “top-9” that we think are really special.
Countries—Select any of the countries below to find guidebooks, children’s books, and other stories that have enriched our travels in that country.
Books for Kids—Here are our favorite children’s books about different places or communities. We have found that sharing relevant stories with our kids before an upcoming journey not only creates excitement about visiting a particular place, but it lays the foundation of familiarity that allows them to have a deeper connection to that place when they are there experiencing it for themselves.
Motorcycle Adventures—One of our favorite ways to travel is on two wheels. Here are books that make us yearn for curvy roads and the unexpected.
Travel, Other Places—These travelogues, stories, and resource books stimulate our imaginations. They not only allow us to experience a journey through the eyes of another, but they provide inspiration to create our own journeys to places that pull at our hearts. Dream on!
Family Travel—Traveling with children is often quite different than an adult adventure. Here are books about families who explore pieces of the world together.
