Whether you are cruisin’ down the road 10 miles, just a flight away from visiting an old friend, or journeying alone across the globe, solo travel can be wonderful. Calming, exciting, adventurous, introspective, lonely, exhilerating. There are so many reasons why we choose it, or crave it. Or sometimes just must do it.
We love to consider what books might end up in our pack on our next trip solo. Maybe something nourishing for the soul. Perhaps a little introspective reading as you have the time and quiet to contemplate. Maybe you’re an adventure story girl or just love to sink into a good novel on the road. Or maybe you’ve never considered traveling alone.
Consider it. Get in the car. Book a flight. Grab a book. And always, cheers to reading.
