I find that travel related books inspire the travel you’re already on and continues to give you strength to keep on going. Learning about a new culture before you arrive will greatly enhance your experience and appreciation of the destination.
Vagabonding: A must read for anyone currently traveling or about to travel. It’s the bible of backpacking.
First They Killed My Father: I highly recommend this book if you’re going to Cambodia. Read the reviews on Amazon and you will see how this book has touched so many people around the world.
Shantaram: A Novel: I highly recommend this one.
