Here at Wandering Educators, I am lucky enough to read MANY, many travel books. Each one can take me to a different place in this world, and I always enjoy it. However, few are full of both humor and humility, and able to teach me many things about both different cultures and the nature of humanity. One such book I've recently finished is The Plane to Lisbon: A Travel Memoir, by Nicholas Dan Richie.

A few times in your life, if you’re lucky, you read a book that totally changes the way you view the world. One such book that is life-changing is entitled Africa Trek (actually, two volumes), by Alexandre and Sonia Poussin.

One of the most difficult things to do while traveling is to capture the essence of your travels. For some of us, we take photos and try to remember that way. For others, travel journaling is the way to remember. Yet others just live, and remember. None of these ways is wrong - but there is always a better way to do anything, isn't there?
