Books for traveling:

  • The Big Trip: Your ultimate guide to gap years and overseas adventures (Lonely Planet)
  • The Lost Girls: Three Friends. Four Continents. One Unconventional Detour Around the World by Jennifer Baggett, Holly C. Corbett, Amanda Pressner
  • The Good Girls Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure by Rachel Friedman


  • A Long Way Home: A Memoir by Saroo Brierley – India
    • This is one of my favorite books, and a part of the reason I became so interested in traveling to India. I saw the movie first, then read the book after I returned from India. Strongly recommend both the movie and the book!
  • Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption by Katie Davis – Uganda
  • When Helping Hurts by Brian Fikkert and Steve Corbett – (On volunteering)
