So you can always tell when I’ve been travelling, because the pictures of my books don’t feature Pearl or Smokey. I went on a lovely road trip to the UK a few weeks ago with my husband, and while away, I read a few books about travelling, just to help me get in the exploring mood. I’ve reviewed both of them on this blog already, here and here, but in case you just want the pared-down reviews, you can listen to my radio segment with the CBC on Tuesday.
In addition to speaking about Lauren Fern Watt’s Gizelle’s Bucket List and Dave Eggers’s Heroes of the Frontier, I also talk about my reading style while travelling, which typically involves reading books en route (i.e. driving in the car). I also confess to using google rather than reading travel books, because nobody got time for that.
