“Reading makes immigrants of us all. It takes us away from home, but more important, it finds homes for us everywhere.” Hazel Rochman

I love to travel to new places. It’s one of my favorite things to do. But, sometimes we just take a vacation at home, which is lovely in it’s own way.

When I’m on a staycation, which I love because I don’t need to pack, and it’s generally a little more relaxing than actually going somewhere…I still like to read books on traveling to other places. I thought I’d share a few of my favorite titles with you.

A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle

    Oh another fun idea!! I’ll have to spend time googling books about places I want to visit, and make a “fantasy vacation” reading list!!! Love it!!
