Bit of a sucker for travel writing. Particularly enjoyed tim moores books recently - genuinely funny guy setting himself ridiculous cycling challenged (the cyclist who came in from the cold, with him cycling the length of the former iron curtain is particularly good).
Also weird encounters/rural/off the beaten tracks usa writing (eg stuff by martin Fletcher)
Finally, im into more serious semi-academic essays like black earth: russua after the fall, by andrew meier.
So… im looking for stuff that falls into any of those categories i guess, but any travel book chat welcome!
