One of the most fun parts about travel is planning where you want to go next, the sites you want to see, and the memories you want to create there. There are so many exciting destinations to choose from and sometimes an overwhelming amount of resources. Sure we have all fallen victim to endless scrolling or getting lost in the corners of the web. But there is something magical about opening up a new book and diving into another world written on the pages. Join us, and travel the globe, book by book. Create deeper connections and share your dreams or memories of exploring the places we discover with fellow book worm travel bugs just like you. We will select a new wanderlust-inspiring book to read each month and host a virtual coffee hour (or happy hour) discussion, led by our travel experts and tour managers.

If You Lived Here, I’d Know Your Name by Heather Lende
Tiny Haines, Alaska, is ninety miles north of Juneau, there’s no traffic light and no mail delivery; people can vanish without a trace and funerals are a community affair. Heather Lende posts both the obituaries and the social column for her local newspaper. If anyone knows what’s going on in this close-knit town—from births to weddings to funerals—she does. Lende’s warmhearted style brings us inside her small-town life.
