Doubles from Levison Wood and John Gimlette and a special read from Allan C. Weisbecker. Check out all the action from November 2017 on Best Travel Books here.
OK, I'm writing this on 26 August 2017 looking back in time as to what I have done over the month of July. The idea going forward is that I write a short monthly update outlining what I've done over the month with regards the Best Travel Books website in a more timely fashion. At this stage I'm intending to post more of a stats update, but I'll assess this over time and adjust accordingly. So what did I do over the month of July?
I'm one of the luckiest people on the planet.
Through no design of my own I was fortunate to be born in a westernised country with access to top-rate education and well-paying job prospects. This provide me with advantages 99% of the global population could only dream of. Rather than having to worry about spending all my time scraping out a living, I actually have leisure time and can choose what I do with that time. This includes spending a Sunday morning updating the Best Travel Books website, whilst occasionally attending to my children. It also means, within reason, I can travel to any overseas destination for no other reason than for personal enjoyment or curiosity.
Wow. I have a new found respect for people who create and maintain functioning websites. As detailed in the About section, I've decided to create a website for people to find good travel-related books. Having done that, I put my feet up thinking, the hard part is done, I've come up with a good idea and the rest will just fall into place.
