The Great Train Mystery eBook by Carole Marsh - | Rakuten Kobo
One of the most entertaining travelogues I have read. Thanks for the suggestions. Lucky for us now, the reasons to travel are more to fulfill personal dreams. As for modern travel literature, The Beach is a classic almost cliche one that still gives me that wanderlust feeling. Just read it ….. It is a classic. I love Troosts books too about living on different Pacifi Islands…..
Have to get around to reading his latest one about following in the footsteps of RLS in the Pacific….. Great to see tips on travel books, Matt. Thanks to this post I downloaded and read the alchemist in a day. Such an incredible book, very life affirming and positive.
It made me think of when I had my palm read by a medium 12 years ago who said I would travel and work for myself. I laughed at him but now it looks like it may be happening. Maybe Paulo was onto something. I enjoyed your interview and plan to read the book.
Description du produit
The Alchemist is one of my favorite books of all time. The movie was abyssal! I dislike the book too. It was a pre-planned adventure. It was a pre-planned book proposal. Ruins the sense of adventure the book tries to portray.

Hi Matt! I went to Paris for the first time in Oct and totally fell in love. Going back in May for a quick visit but would love to drop everything and do the whole expat writer thing there someday. Beautiful work, just beautiful. You left out my favorite, the book that started it all for me. As a child, that book was a magic carpet that took me all over the world and started my wanderlust.
Back in the days before airport shuttles, handicapped walkways and ATMs. A Native American is telling about traditional tribal wisdom can help us maintain our spiritual and physical health on an everyday basis. Have read 4 times, once a year for 4 years aprox. But is full of brilliant wisdom frases which make sense right away. Hope you will enjoy it. I am an avid reader and love an excellent travel memoir! To add some of my favorites to the great list and fantastic additions in the comments, here are a few books I feel are worth the time:.
I was thrilled Vagabonding came out on kindle and bought it as soon as I read my appreciated email from Matt! The latter is a German that toured the US, spent 3 years on a whael cathcer boat and then toured the rest of the world like India and South America in the 19 hundreds. Just finished reading the Alchemist and man What a great book! I can see myself reading the alchemist more than once just because of how inspiring it is. As a frequent business traveler to Asia, I can assure you it is worth a read before a trip there!
I want to suggest one more — City of Djins. I have not read a better travel book.
However, you will enjoy it more if you have or are planning on visiting New Delhi.. Also an epic adventure read, absolutely love it. I came across, and read Vagabonding because of your blog — so Thank You! This book inspired me to visit the Sunderbans, a group of semi-inhabited tidal channel islands in the Gangetic delta, where regular life is at the mercy of the elements of nature, more often fearsome than kind.
It is a few hours road journey from Kolkata. For the local islanders, tourism is one of the means of livelihood and we took a daylong boat ride down the distributaries of the Ganges upto the Bay of Bengal and then back. We had lunch of freshly caught fish on the boat and spent a lazy day cruising through the waters in the cool seaside breeze.
However, the calm and idyll is deceptive, as the locals are always wary of crocodiles and the Bengal tiger lurking in the muddy waters of the delta. We, however, did see the forest officials take away a tranquillised Bengal tiger on a boat to probably a wildlife centre. Staying overnight there is a thrill of sorts as one has to do without electricity and with only basic amenities at hand.
Another plan is to try the local honey that the islanders collect from the jungles of Sundari trees, braving the threat of the tigers and cyclonic storms.

His legend, however, lives on to this day, in the village of Phoenicia, where, or so it is believed, Schultz buried a metal safe containing diamonds, gold and millions of dollars in cash and bonds.
Dewey, for tax evasion. So it was that he ordered his henchmen to gather up the millions he had hoarded over the years and stash it away for the proverbial rainy day. Schultz eventually beat the tax charges, but decided that Dewey needed to be eliminated. He proposed as much to the Syndicate of mob bosses, who voted against it.
