I have traveled a lot and more often than not, there has been a guidebook shoved in my bag. They've always been handy tools but I have never felt any attachment. I just received Fiona Caulfield's Love Travel Guide to Jaipur in the mail and I am in love. Beautifully packaged and designed, it is a pleasure to have it sitting on my bedside table. I hope to test out the contents later this year but for now I am going to happily read every last page. It makes me want to visit all the places in India that there are Love Guides for, just so that I can legitimately own the whole collection.
Switching to another part of the world. . . I am thoroughly enjoying a journey through British culture and London town by way of HowToSpeakBritish. Alysia Cotter, has just moved from LA to London and is keeping a diary of her move. She has a wonderful eye for observation and is reminding me of a lot of things I had forgotten about.
