Books, books, books! When I was little, I used to stay up all night reading, practically devouring novel after novel. Not much has changed now that I’m an adult. I enjoy reading in my spare time and am even part of a book club here in the Netherlands. Additionally, I am a writer and soon-to-be author and have many writer friends. Therefore, when Erik Scalavino suggested we talk about books for an upcoming #CultureTrav, I was all in. The discussion on Thursday, March 24 was inspirational! It is great to see so many book lovers in the world, especially those that love to travel, too. Following the chat, I compiled the names of all the books and authors mentioned, listed in this post.
The second I cracked open Doni Belau’s new book “Paris Cocktails,” I developed a renewed desire to travel to Paris. Her elegantly written descriptions and witty wording, combined with perfectly-paired imagery and illustrations, made me want to be right there alongside the author, sipping a cocktail in the city where many famous writers have called home. Read a review of her book and take a trip down memory lane as I recount my last trip to the “City of Love.”
