Time. Have you ever noticed that we are slaves to time almost every minute of the day?
Time to get up, time to go to school/work, time to get a job finished on time, time to go for lunch, time to get more work done, time for coffee, time for an appointment, time to go home, time to make supper, time to do dishes, time to get groceries, time to get gas, time to do the things on the list before going to bed, time to go to bed, time to get up… rinse and repeat, and repeat, and repeat.
The Great Escape
A routine is a good thing – it keeps us organized and focussed, but sometimes we need to break out of our boring routines, and change things up. We need an escape.
We can do that with travel – but there is also another way to escape that every day routine and it is a heck of a lot cheaper. Become a time traveller. Grab a good book and escape into another place… another life… another time.
Ready to Become a Time Traveller?
Suddenly you are transported into an intriguing and exciting story far from day to day life, and as you turn each page with the anticipation of a child with his first cookie, those words take you to another time.
Reading a good book offers one that childlike awe that makes us come alive again, and we can do that in a very simple way – with a good book we become a time traveller.

So many good books here… but The Happy Isles of Oceania by Paul Theroux is one of my personal favourites, and probably what initiated my passion for travel.[bwwpp_reading_lists sid=2 title=’ ‘ template=compact]
