Our Favorite Travel Books

When we hatched this crazy plan, we were clueless as to how to make it a reality.  

We knew we wanted to travel for a year, but what would it cost? What would we do with our stuff back home? Would we have to give up our insurance, and if so, what would we do if we got hurt on the road?

Luckily for us, couples and solo travelers have been doing this for years.  And they've been writing about it.

Reading and learning from others not only gave us a roadmap of how to build the life we wanted but the courage to take the first step.

If you're looking for a little inspiration, we hope you'll enjoy some of the travel books that got us dreaming.
