There’s nothing more appealing to me than cozying up with a good book while I’m traveling. Reading has the power to whisk you away to different realities and help your mind wander to different lands. It’s one of my favorite past times when I travel for its ability to help me relax and challenge my mind in a different way. There’s nothing better than reading a good book on the beach in Costa Rica or cozying up with a blanket and immersing yourself in an adventure while all on a red eye to New York or Japan. I carry a book with me wherever I go because you never know what will happen; flights are delayed, plans change and accidents occur. A book ensures I have the ability to entertain myself and occupy my time for those unexpected twists and turns when traveling.

Reading is an escape, a breath of fresh air and a way to visit places you haven’t been to yet. Here’s a list of my favorite books that I’ve read while traveling. Some of them I’ve finished and others I’m in the process of reading or will be reading in the future. I’ve accumulated a lot of self-improvement books, some fictional stories that will touch your heart and some that will give you a new perspective on life. Each with their own personalities I love them all and I hope you do too. You don’t have to read them while traveling, you can ready them now and some may help with the yearnings of travel.

Little Women  is one of my favorite books of all time. I’ve read it numerous time and it is about a family of four sisters and their journey through life. It’s heart felt and endearing.

The Fifth Agreement is a book that summarizes five Toltec beliefs on how to live a life of peace and happiness. It’s a little more spiritual than the other books I’ve suggested, but sometimes we need some spiritual uplifting when away from work and the busy lives we need.
