These are the greatest books that inspire travels – Part 2
These are the greatest books that inspire travels and we are here back in business – or into literature and travels, to be more precise. Here are some new suggestions of places to visit inspired by the wonderful adventures.
France is one of the most romantic and fascinating countries. Next time you have the chance, book a flight to Paris and a Paris airport transfer to make the most of your experience in the greatest city in Europe, the most glamorous and romantic.
But in the meantime, travel to rural France with Chocolat by Joanne Harris. You can learn more about the magic trade of chocolate making and also enjoy this study of mores in a gentle and romantic novel that has also been brought to the screen by the brilliant acting of Johnny Depp and Juliette Binoche.
One of the first novel writers, Laurence Sterne, also wrote A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy. Predictably enough, he writes about Italy and France, two of the most mesmerizing countries to visit in the world. You can start your journey with advice gathered from this book.
And if you are in for some purely American road trip, On the Road by Jack Kerouac is just the book for you. It has also been turned into a movie (2012) starring Kirsten Dunst and Kristen Stewart.
And if you have not yet decided where it is that you want to travel, but you are open to an endless classic that can take you to a magical place, that can be set everywhere and at the same time nowhere on the vast plains of this paradoxical humanity, you must explore again and again Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels. This 18th century hero is whisked to some of the most remote and outlandish places in a journey of self-discovery.
We hope you’ve enjoyed our literary trip and remember: these are just a few of the many ideas out there…
