I've enjoyed some marvellous winter reading, supplemented with forays into the magic that is Google Earth to see the landscapes where the writers and characters walked. All snowy you may notice (what is this obsession with snow?!)
The Snow Child (fiction) set in Alaska in the 1920's is a reread from last winter - just as enjoyable second time around.
I loved Peter Matthiessen's 1979 account of his travels to the Crystal Mountain in Tibet, but don't read Richard Mabey's introduction first - it is a spoiler!
Rory Stewart is a fascinating character (currently a member of parliament here in UK) This account of his quite astonishing walk in 2002 across Afghanistan shortly after the fall of the Taliban is an excellent read.
In Consolation of the Forest widely travelled Sylvain Tesson decides to stay put. He spends from February to July of 2010 alone in an isolated cabin on Lake Baikal and this is his daily journal of that stay. I wondered if he could keep my interest for long but I am at 27 May and am still both entertained and amused...
Have you travelled far in your reading lately?
