Welcome to the Bookworm’s Guide to the World!
Love to read? Love to travel?… Stuck at work?
Even when we cannot get away on vacation, there are countless ways the adventures of our favorite literary characters can awaken our own. How many times have you finished a book thinking, “I wish I could have that life,” or “That would be so cool to do….” When you read Eat, Pray, Love (not the movie – gawd, that was awful!) did you long to jump on a plane to a new life? I know I was tempted! Maybe we can’t go to that extreme, but we can pull out the part of a story that makes us feel alive and let it inspire us to try something or go somewhere new!
The Novel Tourist is a lifestyle and travel blog that takes inspiration from novels (*and non-fiction, too!) to actively explore the world. Whether you are looking for things to do close to home or places to travel far away, I aim to help you bring stories to life! If our favorite protagonist can do it, so can we!
I love to travel, but when I really want to escape, I read a book.
