Do you like reading? And travel? Me too!
Whether you like to experience the world through stories read from home, find inspiration before your next vacation or better understand a culture while traveling, you’re in the right place! Here you’ll find curated lists of books set around the world along with tips for making the most of reading wherever you are. 😊
I love that books can transport us; even without leaving home. I also believe there’s nothing quite like reading while traveling; devouring a novel in the place it’s set. My destination reading lists will save you time researching and help you decide what to read next; maybe even inspiring your next trip. I’ve experienced it myself; the novels I read about Iceland and India literally pushed me to visit (in real life!) and added so much to my understanding of local culture and customs.
Why did I start this site?
I’m obsessed with reading; whether I’m home and dreaming of travel, or on the road itself. Each time I plan a trip, I research endlessly for books to read before and during my adventure. Throughout my travels I always seek out the best bookshops, libraries and cozy corners for reading. Frustrated by the lack of quality, non-subscription resources for this niche, I created Tale Away as a place to share my own book and travel finds.
A few of my all-time favorite reads:
A little about me
I’m Ash and I’m an experienced traveller (40 countries and counting!) and I’ve lived on four continents (so far!) I grew up in a small town in rural Australia, spending all my time at the local library and reading to fulfill my fascination with the world. Motivated by the stories I read, I found the determination to travel myself and want to inspire others to do so too!
