TRAVEL READING: A few books on my wishlist

rome31

I always take a book with me when I travel. Most of the times, it stays nicely in my backpack for the whole trip and it comes back without even being touched. But that doesn’t stop me from constantly selecting new books to take with me on my travels – here are a few currently on my wishlist:

Under An African Sky: Journey to the Climate Frontline, by Peter Hudson

biennale05

I know nothing about Mauritania. But after reading an article by Peter Hudson on National Geographic Traveller I decided I wanted to learn more. Peter has been visiting the same village in Mauritania for decades, and this is his most recent book about it. I know that reading it will make me want to go there too!

The Last Train to Zona Verde: Overland from Cape Town to Angola, by Paul Theroux

I’ve never read anything by Paul Theroux (shame!), but for a long time I’ve been meaning to. On the top of my list is The Last Train to Zona Verde, which is supposed to be really dark and not particularly nice to read. I have a fascination with Angola, so I’m keen to see what his experience was.

Around the World in 50 Years: My Adventure to Every Country on Earth, by Albert Podell

I love learning about others’ travel habits and adventures. This book is about how Albert Podell visited all countries on earth – how cool is that? I don’t necessarily want to go to every country on earth (I’m lying, I do, but I’m not planning to do it just yet), but I really want to learn how others do it!

Happy reading!
