Books Will Give You an Amazing Sense of WANDERLUST Reading books will give you a serious case of wanderlust. It is like traveling for your soul. Read- ing Outlander will make you yearn to dip your hands in the icy cold Lochs of the Scottish plains. Books are the inexpensive options for those who cannot afford to travel or simply don’t have the time to go to far-off lands. But they do inspire you to think about investing a little more time and money to travel, and experience things that you have only read so far in books. The Alchemist teaches us that follow- ing your heart to find love and the meaning of life can take you through deserts and force you to wade through raging rivers, but in the end, your destiny will await you. The wonderful description of places from Egypt to Spain will make you want to take a walk though the Bazaars of Egypt and drink Kahwa in the streets of Cairo. According to Paulo Coelho, “If you can concentrate always on the present, you’ll be a happy man… Life will be a party for you, a grand festival, because life is the moment we’re living right now.” After reading this book, following your dreams and passions might not seem like such a bad and impractical idea 13 to you. Another book which will awaken your lust for traveling is On the Road by Jack Kerouac’s, which perfectly explains the desires and frustration that mar our lives and how travel and adventure can make a person overcome his personality flaws, making him a better, confident and stronger person in the end. Books can make you travel though space and time. Remi- niscing the past and learning about how people lived, and what they struggled through their lives, will make you think about the past events with profound clarity. Not only that but you will have an insurmountable set of knowledge about places, not because you have been there in reality, but because the author painted a picture so vivid, that you felt you were right there. If you know the place where you can have the finest Beef Stroga- noff in Vienna or the most nota- ble religious landmarks in Israel, it’s because the books you have read have taken you to far off lands, while you were sitting in a cozy sofa in your room with a hot cup of tea. Books can teach you about the geography and cultures of unknown lands. What they find offensive and how they like to be treated.
