Favourite travel book

Jump to last reply

I'm not talking guidebooks but books about someone's travels. So for example any of Bill Bryson's books or Paul Theroux's travel books.

So what is your favourite or favourities if you have any. Did any inspire you to visit a place as a result of reading it? Do you regularly look for books to read before or during a trip that pertain to the trip you are planning or on?

I've read a lot but I'd have to say that John Berendt's 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil' as well as his 'The City of Falling Angels.' Somehow they are in a different league to Bryson or Theroux.
