15 Amazing Travel Books

Get carried away on these incredible journeys

There are trips, and then there are epic journeys that change your life and make you see the world in a different way. These books are all about the latter type of travel. From chilling out with penguins in the Antarctic to burrowing into the dark heart of South America to a mind-melting, psychadelic weekend on the Vegas strip, these journeys will transport you in many ways.

Should these books inspire you to tell the tale of your own journeys in life, why not write a story for our Journeys campaign.
