    You’ve planned a great trip, and you’re eagerly anticipating it. In fact, the anticipation is all part of the fun of travel. One of my favorite things to do is to read a book or watch a movie about my destination. I find that it gives me greater cultural insight that makes the experience richer. I also always enjoy finding places that were mentioned in my book or seeing sights from a movie.


    You can do an internet search for recommended books for most any place. Here are some favorite books from the Globe Travel team:


    Under the Tuscan Sun (Italy)

    The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency (Botswana)

    Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (Savannah, GA)

    In a Sunburned Country (Australia)

    Outlander (Scotland)

    Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China (China)

    Journey to Ollantaytambo: In the Sacred Valley of the Incas (Peru)

    In the Time of the Butterflies (Dominican Republic)

    In Patagonia (South America)

    Doctor Zhivago (Russia)

    The Great Railway Bazaar (Europe, Asia)

    Video Night in Kathmandu (Far East)


    As you get ready for your next vacation, check out a book about your destination—or start with this list and get inspired for where to go next.
