My passport is begging me for an adventure...

or maybe it's the other way around. Point is, I'm itching for another vacation. I have a couple smaller ones lined up for 2011 (by smaller I mean California) but I think an international one is in store. I was flipping through Nancy Pearl's Book Lust To Go: Recommended Reading for Travelers, Vagabonds, and Dreamers and I felt like packing my bags right then and there. For the time being, I may just have to travel vicariously through books. A few that sound interesting are:
Nowhere in Africa by Stefanie Zweig
Little Bee by Chris Cleave
Sahara by Michael Palin
Baking Cakes in Kigali by Gaile Parkin

and last, but certainly not least....Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas by Hunter S. Thompson
