Reading resources for the world traveller

Preparing yourself for life transforming experiences in other lands can be enhanced with travel reading that helps contextualize what you will see and experience abroad. Our local experts do a great job of making complex historical information accessible to participants in our journeys. Supplementing guided visits with pre-journey reading makes venues more stimulating for participants as they come prepared with a lively curiosity.

In consultation with our clients, we have developed a bibliography of materials. If you come across a book that has helped you make greater sense of historical events, artistic treasures, religious beliefs and practices, or other local cultural perspectives, please share the title with us for future sojourners.
