“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”
― Pico Iyer
I had five days of screaming silence inside my mind. Hard to imagine, isn’t it? I mean I wrote nothing, not a single word, so all of these unwritten thoughts enforced their attempts to break out of my head into my hands and get a life on white pages. Alas, it was forbidden as I was on vacation.
Despite written restrictions, reading was allowed. As my Kindle always with me, all I had to choose from my list of future reading just one book that suits the occasion. After all, I don’t regret the choice because I’ve opened The Book of Bera by Suzie Wilde, and its cover told me almost everything about that we can be best friends in travel, and description just confirmed the expectations.
Unfortunately, I haven’t finished it yet, so I can’t tell you much about its plot, but the fact is this book is made to be read during journeys. As everyone puts many efforts in planning own trips and spends a lot of time for searching matching playlists, which can save the adventure mood, the book is also an important part of such planning and should be on hand.
Here’s to your help and convenience, and in case you’d like to save your precious time, the list of best travel booksin my opinion.
- An Abundance of Katherines by John Green
- The Flanders Panell by Arturo Pérez-Reverte
- The Host by Stephenie Meyer
- The Time of My Life by Cecelia Ahern
- The Violets of March by Sarah Jio
- What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty
- Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
- Looking for Alaska by John Green
- Honeymoon in Paris by Jojo Moyes
- Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion
- The Here and Now by Ann Brashares
- My Name Is Memory by Ann Brashares
- Every Day by David Levithan
- The Spectacular Now by Tim Tharp

Here I’ll leave a small slideshow of my journey through deserts and icy mountains. I had the best trip ever but, as every trip ends, it is never enough, so I better grab The Book of Bera and go find another adventure.
