Knowledge Corner

Your conventional travel books should not be your only source of information.

On this page you will find personal book recommendations for travel inspiration, exciting background stories of a destination or historical events. Some of my favourites to learn about traditions and cultural characteristics are also listed here. Novels to take you to a place with the power of storytelling. Biographies, scientific researches and adventures are the ultimate encouragement for me to want to learn and see more.

 

I believe such books give fantastic insight to discover the world and help to go beyond the general information about a destination. They can add to the knowledge base of travel professionals and travel enthusiasts alike.

These books I found captivating and food for thought, so let me share them with you. Of course this list could be endless, this is only a small selection here on hand. I will keep updating the page, so please check back again.
