My Top 10 Books for Reading on The Road

Top Travel Reads

We all know, there aren’t many positives of travelling on long distance buses or trains whilst backpacking. Having spent a lot of time reading on my travels, I decided to make a list of my top 10 books I think you should all be reading!

One of the greatest gifts is the amount of reading you’re able get through. After many years of packing multiple travel guides and novels for my trips, I decided to invest in a Kindle a few years ago. This is one of the best decisions I made. Instead of finding a book swap in the hostel and choosing from the best of a bad bunch on the shelf, I can download books whenever I’m in wifi, ask for recommendations from other backpackers, carry as many books as I wish AND buy all my books at a reduced price.

What I like to do, is to read books based on the place that I happen to be in at the time. It helps me to know more about the streets and locations that I find myself in, whilst also creating a story for my imagination to enjoy along the way.

Here are a few of my all time favourite books to travel with:
