If you haven’t felt inspired to travel in a while – don’t worry!
We’ve put together a list containing eight of the best travel books of all time from Kerouac to Hemingway (with a little Steinbeck thrown in for good measure).
On the Road by Jack Kerouac (1957)
Based on the travels of Kerouac and his friends across America – On the Road is considered one of the defining works of the post-war Beat and Counterculture generations.
The Beach by Alex Garland (1996)
Considered by some to be the quintessential backpacking novel The Beach details one backpacker’s search for a legendary isolated beach that’s untouched by tourism.
The Great Railway Bazaar by Paul Theroux (1975)
This riveting travelogue recounts a four-month journey by train from London through Europe – the Middle East – the Indian subcontinent and Southeast Asia.
(ed:..if i could lean in here with a personal recommendation from this list you may not have heard of/considered..i have very pleasant memories from my encounter with therouxs’ ‘the great railway bazaar’..and would throw a ‘must-read!’ at it..)
