I love reading. While I am travelling I always take a book with me. Very often I read books about people and places that just fuel me with wanderlust. I would like to share with you my last list of books that will definitely make you look for a purpose while you head to your next destination.
”The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho will fuel you with wanderlust to discover Egypt!
The first one is ”The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho. This is his most famous book and for a reason!!! I read it several times and it always amazes me. It’s a young man’s journey through the desert to Egypt in search of treasure and the only treasure he finds is love. To sum up, the lesson learned from this book is that we always have to trust the journey in order to arrive at the right destination. Great book with a great message that will definitely fuel you with wanderlust.
“Three apples fell from the sky” by the Armenian writer Narine Abgarjan
Furthermore comes “Three apples fell from the sky” by the Armenian writer Narine Abgarjan. Likewise, this book enchanted me and transported me to Armenia and its welcoming, always assertive and wholehearted people. The book tells the story of an Armenian woman who faces a difficult life but finds happiness thanks to her helpful community. Thanks to this novel, I learned more about Armenia and to visit this beautiful country one day.
Krakow here I come: ”Legend of Jewish Krakow” will bring you in Kazimierz – the Jewish Quarter in Krakow
”Legend of Jewish Krakow” brings you in Kazimierz – the Jewish Quarter in Krakow. Through the legends of Jewish people, you’ll visit all the beautiful streets of Kazimierz and have a look in the synagogues around. The Jewish quarter is a vibrant place nowadays and once you read the book, your visit to Kazimierz will get another purpose. Moreover, you will be willing to learn more about the lifestyle of Jewish people. If you are wondering what to bring with you as a souvenir from Krakow – buy a book, it’s always a good idea!
”Around the world in Eighty Days” (”Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours” in French) by Jules Verne
The next book will give you an idea to dream about. ”Around the world in Eighty Days” (”Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours” in French) is an adventurous novel by the French writer Jules Verne. Phileas Fogg a gentleman from London and his valet Passpartout set on an 80-days travel-the-world trip after a 20,000 wager set up by some Reform Club fellows. After overcoming all kind of challenges and difficulties on their way, they made it and arrived back to England just on time!!! They travelled the world by all means of transport, came back on time and won the wage. In the end, the biggest reward for Phileas Fogg was the love of Mrs Aouda who he saved and brought with him in his homeland. One of the greatest classics of all times.
Immerse yourself in Bulgaria with “Grandma, tell me a story” by Ivinela Samuilova.
The last book on my list is a Bulgarian novel (I don’t think it’s translated into English) “Grandma, tell me a story” by Ivinela Samuilova. A young woman works on a project related to Bulgarian folklore and spends some time with Grandmother Zhiva in Mahala Nebesna. As a result, the young lady ends up in a Bulgarian village in Stara Planina. In this remote place, she meets a group of amazing people who show her and teach her the art of living. This book reminded me about the beauty of remote areas where time has stopped and you can feel life at the fullest. To conclude, if you want to set up on another type of travelling, visit Bulgarian villages, you’ll live once in a lifetime experiences there!!!
Hope you are fueled with curiosity and ready for your next adventure!!!
Thanks for reading!
