My favourite travel books + music

Good morning everyone ❤

When I travel, I always take my ebook-reader with me. Sometimes I get lonely and then a good book gives me comfort. Or I go to the local library to search for literature that will give me inspiration and strength for new adventures. I love to listen to the sounds nature, but when I am in the car or on the bus/train/plane, the right music provides me with an energy and happiness booster.
