I’ve never thought that one of the things I’ll do a lot once I start my own business is travel. I thought I would be stuck in an office, growing my online empire, but that was so far from the truth. At some point, while I was building my company, I travel 5 months in a year: I went to trade show, expos, conferences, all to promote our work and get more contacts in the industry.

Truth is, though, that with the best travel books, you can explore some of the world’s most incredible places without ever having to leave your home. Whether you don’t have the funds to take a fantastic trip or you’re planning a future getaway, you’ll easily be able to pick the perfect destination for your time away. Filled with plenty of pictures and informative blurbs about unique destinations and popular tourist attractions, your travels will be far more interesting.

For me it wasn’t about not traveling, but about adding a little bit of fun to a business trip. I looked in advance for things to do or see and I usually got one more day at the destination (if possible) and I got to enjoy some places I would never have gone to otherwise.

What we have come to love about travel books the most is that they help to educate you about specific areas in the world. You’ll be able to delve into unique cultures, learn about native species, as well as the different environments that we are surrounded by. You would be surprised at how much you can learn about your local area if you were to invest in some of the best travel books.

There is so much to experience in the world, and with the insanely vibrant imagery in these books, it will feel like you’re traveling without having to spend thousands. From destinations, such as Fiji, to the Amazon, there is an extensive number of places that you can experience simply by flipping through the pages. Travelers will especially love these books, as they can help you to pinpoint unique destinations that you may have never thought of before.

During your time away from home, consider picking up some of the best travel books in the area you’re visiting! You might find yourself reinventing your itinerary so that you can have more amazing experiences that are indeed one of a kind.

By the end of your trip, you can guarantee you will have an assortment of unique picturesque moments, so you can show off your amazing travels and soak in everyone’s envy.

It’s easy to see how so many people have wanderlust to see things outside of what they’re faced with every day. Surely consider some of the best travel books for an exceptional experience you aren’t soon to forget.

Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel

Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel

Travel is something we've found to crave and seek out within the team, and the fact we're set up as a distributed team gives us all a lot of freedom to explore the world. Vagabonding is one of the best books out there to think about travel in a whole new way. Rather than going to places for just a few days and cramming in seeing all the sights, it suggests that if we can we should spend weeks or months rather than days in a place. That way we can get to know the culture and people or even become part of it.

Travels with Charley in Search of America

Travels with Charley in Search of America

I wanted to include an older book that has been on my bookshelves for decades, and is a less obvious example of reading to lead. John Steinbeck took a road trip with his dog Charley for company across the length and breadth of the US, and recorded what he saw, who he met and what he learned.

With his inimitable charm, it opens your eyes to the small pleasures of life, and the great wonders of humanity in the little moments that matter. Less a direction on how to lead, you could see it as a subtle guide on how to live.

Gulliver's Travels

As Viagens de Gulliver

Which books should be read by every single intelligent person on planet? [...] Gulliver's Travels (Swift) [to learn, among other satirical lessons, that most of the time humans are Yahoos]. If you read all of the above works you will glean profound insight into most of what has driven the history of the western world.

The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies?

The World Until Yesterday: What Can We Learn from Traditional Societies?

It’s not as good as Diamond’s Guns, Germs, and Steel. But then, few books are. Diamond finds fascinating anecdotes about what life is like for hunter-gatherers and asks which ones might apply to our modern lifestyles. He doesn’t make some grand pronouncement or romanticize tribal life. He just wants to find the best practices and share them.

Fluxo: a psicologia da experiência ideal

Fluxo: a psicologia da experiência ideal

Ao reler o maravilhoso livro de Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, me deparei com esta passagem sobre como trabalhar palavras cruzadas. Acho que ele poderia muito bem estar falando sobre fazer poemas de blecaute:

"Há muito a ser dito em favor deste passatempo popular, que em sua melhor forma se assemelha aos antigos concursos de enigmas. É barato e portátil, seus desafios podem ser graduados para que novatos e especialistas possam apreciá-lo, e sua solução produz uma sensação de ordem agradável que dá uma sensação satisfatória de realização e oferece oportunidades de experimentar um estado suave de fluxo para muitas pessoas que estão presas em saguões de aeroportos, que viajam em trens suburbanos ou que estão simplesmente passando as manhãs de domingo.

Damn Right: Nos bastidores com o bilionário da Berkshire Hathaway Charlie Munger

eu sou um enorme Charlie Munger fã. Por alguma razão, eu tinha perdido esta biografia dele. Aprendi algumas coisas que não sabia e viajei no tempo para um livro escrito no contexto de Charlie Munger há cerca de 20 anos.

Memoirs of Sergeant Bourgogne

Memoirs of Sergeant Bourgogne

There’s this book I really really enjoyed: The memoirs of Sergeant Bourgogne. I would have never even heard about it had I not asked someone for an odd recommendation. It’s raw, the edition is poor or lacking, but your imagination covers for it. The story is so detailed and crude that I still don’t understand why there isn’t a movie about it!

The Upstarts: como Uber, Airbnb e as empresas assassinas do novo Vale do Silício estão mudando o mundo

The Upstarts: como Uber, Airbnb e as empresas assassinas do novo Vale do Silício estão mudando o mundo

Se você lê para manter a motivação e se divertir, recomendo alguns livros que, além de contarem ótimas histórias, também contêm lições e aprendizados. Você não aprenderá muitas lições passo a passo com esses livros, mas sairá percebendo que nem todas as startups, independentemente do estágio em que se encontram, são tão refinadas quanto fazem você pensar. Você perceberá que eles cometem erros e lutam pelas mesmas coisas pelas quais você luta quando começa. Acho que isso ajuda a me motivar.

Arbitrary Stupid Goal

Arbitrary Stupid Goal

Certainly my favorite book cover of the year, the graphic designer’s memoir drops you right into a kid’s eye view of 1970s Greenwich Village. With it’s chunked sections and hand-drawn illustrations, it gave me the same kind of quick, skippy joy I get when reading Vonnegut.

1,000 Foods To Eat Before You Die: A Food Lover's Life List

1,000 Foods To Eat Before You Die: A Food Lover’s Life List

If one is to name the single most knowledgeable person about food on planet Earth, it would be Mimi Sheraton. She is also --by far-- the most experienced food critic in an area where experience matters the most, a field in which the expert is the expert.

She has an insatiable curiosity, does her homework, visits countries, argues with locals, tries all manner of restaurants, and is never fooled by hot air or pseudosophistication. I have seen it with my own eyes. Over the past 34 years i watched her in action, particularly when after my graduation, I would go order for her in restaurants so the food would get to the table before the waiters recognized her. She did not use her priviledge as a food critic to get the better quality food and service than the rest of the people --a testament of both ethics and curiosity.

As I said she is the real thing; this book is the real book.

Draft No. 4: On the Writing Process

Draft No. 4: On the Writing Process

My current obsession is John McPhee. He's a creative nonfiction wizard, and as soon as I got my hands on Draft No. 4, where he explains quite vividly how he chooses the structure of his stories, I was hooked. He even mentions creating an entire article based on a spiral-like diagram structure, before even starting to actually write the piece.
