Lighting Out for the Territory

Spring, despite being my favorite season, has it kind of tough. For one, we expect the weather to be perfect all the time. But more difficult than high weather expectations, spring has a reputation for being a time of new beginnings and big changes. Sometimes spring just can’t handle the pressure and we’re forced to hit the road in search of our own opportunity and adventure.

If you’re not quite ready for a trip of your own, you might let someone else take the journey for you . . . by reading a book! Sure, a trip to Galveston can be fun but by reading Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles you can experience the trials and tribulations of exploring new planets! The protagonist in Virginia Woolf’s Orlando travels not only from country to country but also through time while experiencing life as both a man and a woman! Here are a few more travel stories to help you begin your journey!
