SUITSUIT picks: 5x travel books to feed your wanderlust

Just because we’re all stuck at home right now and can’t fulfill our travel dreams at the moment, doesn’t mean we can’t dream about it at all! Use this time to prepare for the all the travel opportunities that lay ahead. SUITSUIT has selected five inspiring travel books for you; from impressive stories to the 500 most beautiful places in the world. Get inspired! 

A Year Without Make-Up: Tales of a 20-Something Traveler
Have you ever thought about quitting your job to travel the world? Blogger Stephanie Yoder did. At the age of 25, she’d had enough of the monotonous nine-to-five grind and decided to leave for Asia with her backpack. She traveled through Japan, China and Southeast Asia, experiencing the craziest and most beautiful moments; from being attacked by giant parrots to meeting the love of her life. Stephanie tells her story, but also gives tips - and tries to give courage - to people who are also looking for a major life change. 

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia 
This book by Elizabeth Gilbert is also known as the bible for any solo female traveler. She tells her story about how she wants to find happiness again after a few unhappy years in her life. Elizabeth (or Liz) decides to travel alone for a year. She meets la dolce vita in Italy, learns about God in an Ashram in India, and in Indonesia she finds the balance she was looking for. This is also where she finds love. 

Eat, Pray, Love not only shows Liz’s quest for herself, but also what the world has to offer during this journey. The different cultures, cuisines and knowledge that you’ll find all over the world, which are beautifully highlighted in this book, will make your wanderlust come alive again. 

Lonely Planet’s Ultimate Travelist: Our List of the 500 Best Places To See
The world’s largest travel guide publisher shows you the most beautiful places in the world, ranked from 1 to 500. Do we need to say more? The top 500 has been put together by a team of worldwide travel experts, which results in a top 10 with both the Eiffel Tower and lesser known hidden gems in it. This book filled with beautiful places - including breathtaking photography - shows you the world at its best. Get inspired and grab your travel bucket list; we guarantee that you will want to add some points to that list after reading this book! 

1000 Places to See Before You Die
This hefty volume written by Patricia Schultz reminds travelers that tourist hotspots are only a small percentage of what the world has to offer. This book shows places around the globe, continent by continent, that travelers are likely to overlook: sacred ruins, hilltop villages, small hotels, castles, hidden islands, opera houses and much more. It tells exactly why it’s essential to visit these places and then the practical information follows (address, telephone number, best time to visit, etc.). So, grab your travel bucket list again, as it will become a little longer :). 

Where To Go When: Unforgettable Trips for Every Month
Now that we can’t get on a plane, it’s all the more fun to look ahead to which journeys are really worth it when it’s safe to travel again. Where To Go When shows the best places to visit at any time of the year. Find out why Valencia is at its best in March, why you should see the untouched landscapes in Mongolia in July, and why stargazing in Chile is truly magical in December. This collection of ideas - accompanied with beautiful photographs - will inspire you to plan the most unforgettable adventures far ahead. Exactly what we need now that all we can do is look forward to a better time. 


We hope that one of these books will feed your wanderlust and that you can continue dreaming about your next destination. Have you been able to choose from all those amazing places? We’d love to hear it from you! :) 


Stay healthy & stay safe. 

Love, SUITSUIT
