One of the best things about summer vacation is going on a trip – whether it is around your own city on a staycation, to the town one stop over or to an entirely different country altogether, to some place that you’ve never been to or a place that’s as familiar as the back of your hand. Traveling is a second passion in my life, right alongside books. Travel Tales is a celebration of these combined passions, and I’m hosting it this August together with my friends Magan & Estelle of Rather be Reading and Elena of Novel Sounds.
Our main goal is to celebrate that, as readers, we get to visit places both real and imagined through all of the books we read – and to go on “vacation”, reading style. We’ve got some great posts about reading, travel and a combination of both these passions coming up. There are also going to be a few guest posters joining us in sharing their love of reading and travel and maybe even their hometowns!
So fasten your seatbelts, grab a book or two or ten, and pack some sunscreen or a parka (whichever happens to be applicable in your case) and join us as we share all of our Travel Tales with you this month.
