Books that Can Satisfy Your Desire to Travel

 Life has been very challenging during this COVID-19 pandemic. 

Industries have been shut down, and the public is advised to stay home. While it is very understandable that travel needs to be reduced to stop the spread of disease, it can really make life difficult for those of us who love to travel.


Thankfully, all was not wasted during these months of quarantine. I was able to come across two great books that not only helped pass the time; they helped satisfy my desire to travel. I hope that they help you too.

In case you are a student who is writing an assignment about traveling or any other topic at this time  I would love to advise you to get help from EzAssignmentHelp experts who are responsible for providing you a high-quality paper.

The Alchemist (Paolo Coehlo)

This isn’t a new book, so I’m sure many of you have probably heard about it if not read it. I have read it myself a few years ago. But it was only during the global lockdowns that I truly came to appreciate it even more.


It’s about a young shepherd in Spain who tries to decipher the meaning of his dreams. He is told that he will find treasure at the pyramids of Egypt. So he embarks on a journey to Africa where he encounters interesting people along the way, teaching him many things.


You’ll have to read it yourself to find out the rest, but I found it amazing how sometimes life’s journeys are quite similar. You travel the world and learn from others, only to discover that what you were looking for was always nearby. Though it’s not your standard book about travel, it will give you that feeling of traveling the world.

Eat, Pray, Love (Elizabeth Gilbert)

This is a book that will paint a more colorful picture of places to visit after the lockdown. It is a true story, and it was made into a movie that you might also like to watch. In the book, a divorcee decides to travel the world in search of healing. She goes to Italy, where she eats. Then she visits India, where she learns to pray. Finally, she ends up in Indonesia, where she finds love.


Aside from enjoying the stages of her emotional journey, my desire to travel again was rekindled as I read her experiences in each country. Of course, I’d like my travels to start on a good note, unlike hers. As a foodie, I particularly want to visit Italy to try real Italian delicacies. 

And this desire for food led me to research more about Asian cuisine, because of India and Indonesia, and I’d like to visit there as well. I do believe that reading this book during this pandemic will get you thinking about the great things to hope for after things have settled down.



Times are tough right now as we are all asked to stay at home. But there is still much to look forward to once borders open up again. If you’d like to remain sane while waiting for travel restrictions ease, try these two great books. They will satisfy your need to travel while rekindling that hope of better things to come.
