James Baldwin

You think your pain and your heartbreak are unprecedented in the history of the world, but then you read. It was books that taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, who had ever been alive.

4 Travel Books That Will Inspire You To Travel

Travel around the world with these great reads.

However, some of the folks are still uncertain that they can pull it off. After all, traveling costs money and time — without talking about the need to overcome language and cultural barriers.

But then again, traveling changes you physically and mentally. When you travel it is like investing in yourself. You meet new people, a new way of life, a new way of thinking than the people you are used to in your homeland. It makes you feel more open to new ideas and how you see the world and living. Once you understand that traveling can do wonders for you, you will definitely be motivated to pack your bag and start traveling more. 

That is why we collect some of the best travel books to fuel your wanderlust. 

“Arabian Sands”, Wilfred Thesiger 

This book describes how the author experienced the vast desert of the Arabian Peninsula, its natural features, and the splendors of the flora and fauna contained within it. This travel book also shows the impressive landscapes of the desert such as Mount Al-Qarah. 

The book also portrays the hospitality of Bedu Arabs, particularly shown towards visitors and tourists through the sharing of food and their invaluable assistance to travelers. 

Despite the formidable desert climate, Thesiget completed his journeys throughout the sands of Ghanim and the quicksand of Umm al-Samim. 

This book includes facts, stories, and personal anecdotes from the author about his life and travels. This book also contains remarkable illustrations and maps of the Arabian peninsula and the Empty Quarter. 

While things have greatly changed since the times Bedouins roamed these deserts, you can get a glimpse of their lives by taking a trip to Dubai. Before futuristic skyscrapers, a long coastline, luxury automobiles, and bright lights, Dubai was only sand. Driving through the desert is one of the best ways to get a better idea of what culture was like before the city flourished. If you want to turn the desert trip into a romantic getaway just for the two of you, a premium car like those found in luxury car rental may be just what you need. The first benefit of a luxury car hire is that it will give you the ultimate comfort. Second, it ensures safety and makes sure that everything will be perfect. On top of that, renting a car gives you the freedom to move at your own pace and allows you to travel long distances. 

“The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho

Some travelers seek adrenaline and non-stop activity, others – unapologetic siestas and ultimate relaxation. But while you’re busy looking for something outside, you usually end up discovering a part of yourself that you didn’t even know existed.  

“The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho tells about Santiago, a young Spanish shepherd in the rolling hills of Andalusia. In search of treasure, the adolescent joins a caravan crossing the desert toward Egypt. But during his adventures, he finds himself, instead.

With the author’s visionary blend of spirituality, magical realism and folklore, The Alchemist is a story with the power to inspire you to embark on a new journey. 

“The Sheltering Sky”, Paul Bowles

The story of three Americans travel aimlessly through Africa, searching for new experiences. Thus, in this external aspect the novel is a story of amazing adventure. In its inner aspect, “The Sheltering Sky” is an allegory for the spiritual adventure of the fully conscious person into modern experience. 

“On the road”, Jack Kerouac

The novel tells the story of two friends whose cross-country journeys are a search for meaning and real experience. On the Road offers the chance to go on the road with Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarty, two great American “courage-teachers” — perhaps the last of their tribes.

This book will help get you geared up for your next epic adventure on the road.

Wrapping It Up 

Hope, these 4 books will inspire you to put on your sunglasses, or your reading glasses, and leave your old world behind.

Ezra Pound

Great literature is simply language charged with meaning to the utmost possible degree.
