I'm crazy about travel narratives.
When I can't decide what to read,
I always look for a travel narrative.
Here is my list of the Top Ten Travel Narratives:
Blue Highways: A Journey Into America
The first travel narrative I remember reading.
A Year in Japan
Beautiful pictures along with a
wonderful travel narrative.
Shooting the Boh
I've recommended this one several times.
Paris to the Moon
I fell in love with the idea of going to Paris
from the moment I first read this book.
Dark Star Safari
All the way across Africa.
With Paul Theroux.
Notes from a Sunburned Country
Neither Here Nor There
I can't leave out Bill Bryson.
Glory in a Camel's Eye: A Perilous Trek through the Greatest African Desert
Yet another trip I will never take
except by book.
Angry Wind by Jeffrey Tayler
And then there's Afghanistan...
with shooting still going on....
Retracing the path of Captain Cook...
Tony Horwitz is a favorite.
Travels in Siberia
And, if you get tired of the tropics,
you can always head for cooler weather.
How about you?
Can you think of a good travel narrative I missed?
