A list of top travel books suggested by travel writers
Friday’s Guardian saw today’s travel writers picking their favorite travel books. Lots of wonderful travel books here – Love and War in the Apennines by Eric Newby, Destinations by Jan Morris and The Worst Journey in the World by Apsley Cherry-Garrard. I’m currently working my way through The World 1950-2000 by Jan Morris – last night I visited Odessa, Moscow and St Petersburg (a city formerly known as Petrograd and Leningrad). I settle down for a quiet read at the end of the day and Jan whisks me off to some corner of a globe (although Soviet-era Moscow did not appear very appealing).
