The first official day of summer is just weeks away, and for some people, those long days of warm weather mean just one thing: that the season of wanderlust is in full swing, and it’s time to hit the road. Or the air! Or the sea! (Or, whatever else you hit as soon as your bags are packed and sunscreen is applied.) I, for one, am a total sucker for an epic road trip — the open-road tunes, the strange billboards, the roadside snacks and attractions. I love it all. But let’s face it: sometimes in life, you can’t just drop everything and take off into the wild unknown at a moment’s notice. And that’s where epic travel books come in.
