Fully revised for 2018!
After checking out my post sharing 72 Amazing Gift Ideas for Travel Lovers, a reader asked if I had any gift suggestions for someone who longs to travel but is unable to do so at the moment, a person who loves learning about places around the world, and is dreaming of a time when they may visit some of them. My mind turned immediately to books!
This guide recommends over 100 books full of travel inspiration, ideas and advice. Enjoy classic guide books; travel memoirs full of wonderful stories; educational books about a place’s history, culture and people; photography books showcasing the world’s wonders; and even fiction through which one connects with a story’s setting…
There are travel books to suit full-on adventurers as well as armchair travellers! I hope you enjoy my suggestions and do feel free to add your favourites in the comments!
