Five Great Travellers Books

1. Candide by Voltaire

Awesome little travel book, first published in 1759 but fresh like it was written last week.

2. The Colossus Of Maroussi by Henry Miller

Tropic of Cancer is a great travel book too, but this one of Miller in Greece is full of traveller inspiration and beauty.

3. The Mosquito Coast by Paul Theroux

Great story of rebellion and dreams and travel. Written by a trail blazing travel writer.

4. A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway

Well there has to be one of Hem, and as over-quoted as it is, his lines make you taste Paris on your tongue and yearn like crazy to live in another country.

5. Nietzsche In Turin by Lesley Chamberlain

About the great little philosopher thinking his great thoughts and burning the midnight oil writing some of his best books while livin in Turin and travelling around the Alps, high up in the mountains of his mind.
