5 Best Books About Travel

The 5 Best Books meme is hosted by Indie Reader Houston
  This week’s list is for our 5 best books about travel.  One of my favorite genres is travel narratives, so I have had no trouble coming up with five books, in no particular order:
  1. The Great Typo Hunt:  Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time by Jeff Deck and Benjamin D. Herson.  A fun story about guys correcting spelling and grammar errors on signs and other public displays across the country. 
  2. Breakfast with Buddha by Roland Merullo.  A novel about two unlikely companions on a cross-country road trip.
  3. Walking Israel:  A Personal Search for the Soul of a Nation by Martin Fletcher.  An unusual yet thoughtful trip along the length of Israel
  4. The Geography of Bliss:  One Grump’s Search for the Happiest Places in the World by Eric Weiner.  This is one of my all-time favorites – a great book about how one’s environment can contribute to ( or detract from) one’s happiness.
  5. Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman.  A story of two friends travelling through China.
