Books that make you go….

Ever read a book that was so good at drawing you into it’s magical world, about a boy who lived under the stairs, that you decided to plan your next vacation around it to experience the real thing?

The dining hall at Christ Church college at Oxford, aka what they replicated to creat the Great Hall at Hogwarts.

Ever finish a suspense novel and become convinced that La Pyramide (the inverted pyramid) at the Louvre isn’t just an art installation, but rather a pivotal religious site?

She must have read the Da Vinci Code too. I was a little less obvious about it.

Ever get the urge to Eat, Pray, and Love all over the world because it seemed to work out well for Elizabeth Gilbert?

Eating my way through Portland’s food trucks. Stop #1, the Grilled Cheese Grill.

Ya. Me too.

A good book transports you to another world, another life, a place you can create with your imagination. A great book does everything the good book can do plus it inspires you to get off your couch and travel.

What books have inspired you to travel? Books that made you go…

  1. I think the HP book would make me travel… if i had the money.

  2. Yes! I just wrote an article on this – six novels involving travel that have got under my skin and made me want to travel… (See my blog for article). I think books are more powerful than TV for this because of our imaginations. Definitely read a book for travel inspiration! Eat Pray Love is a great example of this – if the film gets you in the mood for travel what does the book do!
