Books are an intrinsic part of our lives along with breathing, travel and eating pistachios and we do like a good read, especially on long journey’s and in airport terminals. Strangely much of our literature is travel based!
We will continue to update this page as more books are consumed….you can never have to many books in your life!
Here are a few of our best reads to date:
Our fifth book of Mammoth adventures, A Mammoth Serving of Curry and Noodles covers are journey through India and SE Asia, wonderful places with many incidents and amazing places along the way.
The Tent, the Bucket and Me: The hilarious camping holidays of Emma during the 70’s, I laughed so hard at points my tusks nearly fell off!
The Adventures of a Hard-up, Diabetic Traveller with a Corn Flake Problem: A great read with a bowl of cornflakes in every country that he visits.
MidLife Backpacker: A lovely read which gave us quite a few giggles
Extreme Budget Backpacker: An insight into travelling cheap with no budget allowance for pistachio’s!
Sardines Might Fly: A humorous look at aeroplane travel, it’s always interesting to read other peoples views and to realise that many of us think in the same way.
Kicking Ass on the Road: Could be useful for first time travellers but we found ourselves skipping quite large chunks of it as it wasn’t relevant to us.
To Travel Hopelessly: A fantastic insight into travelling and working abroad, not sure we could party quite as much though!
The Journey in Between: was a brilliant read, detailing the authors walk along the El Camino de Santiago, the places he saw and the people he met, not sure Woolly could walk that distance though!
Off the Beaten Track, Brilliant read which made us both cry with laughter at points, not sure I’d be brave enough to tackle some of the journey they undertook but might consider it with more research, there a brave pair!
Drive, Ride, Repeat: We enjoyed a lot of this book but found that the author went so far off subject in his writing that we gave up on some chapters, let us know what you think.
Jason Smart: is a fellow travelblogger who writes in a humorous and most enjoyable way. We have used many of his books as travel guides to find some slightly more unusual places to visit on our trips. With quite a few of his tales to choose, From Here to Anywhere is defiantly something I would love to try
Backpacks and Bra Straps: A recent addition to our reading matter is by Savannah Grace telling the tale of her backpacking travels with her family over four years, like us they loved Nepal and have now given us some further ideas to add to our travel adventures.
Out of Office Male: John Mcabe was a fascinating read focusing on how he left the rat race, the reasons why he wanted to travel the world and some interesting tales of his adventures which left me wanting more.
Books written by us: It would of course be remiss of me to not mention I own great works which detail my adventures of travel and living abroad over the last seven years….the next will be out sometime this year!
