Books that inspire me to travel

Now that my life is finally starting to calm down from the chaotic changes of the past few months I want to try and swing this blog back to what I intended it for, escaping the cubicle to seek adventure and live YOUR life to the fullest, that being said reading has always been a huge aspect of my life and I feel it is important to share the books that often inspire a deep wanderlust. Most of these books were accidental finds but they still give me a since of wanderlust when I think about them. If you are someone that loves to read but can’t afford to travel full time then these lovely finds are for you. Who knows maybe if you read one of these they will inspire your next adventure. All of these books are FIVE fabulous stars in my book and I highly recommend each and every one of them.

Soy Sauce for Beginners by Kirstin Chen  Singapore


Not only is this a beautiful cover (which I admit is normally a bad thing) this book is a beautiful tale of love, family, loyalty and well soy sauce.   I admit when first read this book I was certainly a soy sauce beginner and have learned to pay attention to soy sauce as they really are different…. I am serious.






The Unimaginable by Dina Silver- Thailand



This book is quite the adventure and page turner.   It is everyone’s dream AND nightmare wrapped up in one book.  When I started this book I could not put this book down.  I still think about this book and even though it had some scary moments I can’t wait to visit Thailand someday.












Sleeping with Paris by Juliette Sobanet- France

18800548 Again this is a book that once I started I could not put it down.  I confess I started this book because of the French men… but in reality I kept reading in the series because it is superb.  Sobanet is a fabulous author and I HIGHLY recommend you read any of her books as they are all absolutely amazing.








The next three books are from the same author and she again she is one of my favorite authors, like seriously.   When I start one of her books I know ABSOLUTELY I will not be asleep at a respectable hour.   All of her books are amazing and she writes the books set in awesome places.

Honeymoon for One is Hilarious and set in Belize… I could NOT stop laughing at this book so amazing.

How I Learned to Love the Walrus is amazing, it was very unexpected and very real.  There is such a sad moment in the book but sadly it is a reality check for those in the wild but the book is heart warming and eye opening about the Walrus and the Alaskan wilderness.

Vlad All Over- Boy oh Boy I loved this book…and I admit I have a thing for Romanians ( I mean have you SEEN Sebastian Stan???)  that being said this book is well paced & gives you a pretty good adventure around Romania, and believe me books set in Romania is not easy
