Posted By Trav


Yesterday we ignited your wanderlust with a list of books about travel in which you’re bound to find something you’ll enjoy.

Today we fan the flames higher.

Nick returns for the epic Part II where we go through books 1-8 on our list and ,of course, more honorable mentions (like you expected anything else).

With over 40 books mentioned between Part I and Part II there’s a ton of reading to be done!

Even Nick & I have a huge list of books to read now, apparently we need to do this more often.

Do you have a favorite book about travel that we didn’t mention? We didn’t know about it! Leave a comment below and let us know, so that next time we won’t make the same mistake!
