When I’m not traveling I love to read books that make me feel that I’m traveling. Whether it’s a mental health journey with lots of reflection or a beautiful novel.
My top 3 favorite books that give me the travel feels are: The Alchemist from Paulo Coelho, What I Know for Sure from Oprah Winfrey and Untamed from Glennon Doyle.
