Bruce Chatwin, Anatomy of Restlessness for all of us who can't sit quiet in a room but have to travel to get to know the value of men (Ib'n Battuta). Robyn Davidson, Desert Places, for those who want to travel in Rajasthan, fascinating and overwhelming. Who likes to go by train: Paul Theroux, Riding the Iron Rooster, by train through China. It' s a hilarious book. And travelling through Russia during WWI: Monika Czernin, Ich habe zu kurz gelebt, Die Geschichte der Nora Gräfin Kinsky, I don't know whether it is translated into English. It gives a vivd picture of the changes of the old Russian Empire by the revolution.
