Armchair Travel

I love to travel--in the summer of 1989, right before the Berlin Wall fell, I spent a month with family in Hungary. I toured Europe for a month in 1991. In February 1997 I visited Anchorage, Alaska and went dog-sledding and attended Fur Rendezvous events. For Labor Day this year I'll be in the Caribbean ziplining and relaxing. In between all of my vacations and adventures, I read travel books. I love Tim Cahill, Bill Bryson, Sarah Vowell and Jon Krakauer to name just a few. If you're interested in seeing what I recommend for devotees of the art of travel, please take a look at our newest Book Bulletin list, "Armchair Travel," and subscribe today. Who knows, maybe these books will inspire you to turn your staycation into a vacation!
