#BookReview : Notes from the Road by Shilpa Garg #BlogchatterEBook
Somewhere in the middle of the #AtoZChallenge I remember asking Shilpa Garg if she was planning to turn her posts into an Ebook. I must admit I was crushed when her reply wasn’t in the affirmative.
As I read through her posts every day I was further convinced that these informative posts need to come together to form a book and I kept hoping Shilpa would change her mind. When I saw Notes from the Road listed on the Blogchatter Ebook Carnival I let out a whoop of delight.
Travel is the theme of this book, and Shilpa writes about the A to Z of it. From traveling solo to traveling with kids. From Health Benefits of Nature Travel to Why Travel Makes You Awesome. The chapters ‘9 Annoying Things About Hotels’ and ‘Travel Problems’ would find all travellers nodding their heads in agreement with.
Shilpa’s writing is fresh and engaging. Her words come from experience, which is why this book connects with the reader. The clarity of her writing ropes you in and keeps you engrossed through the 26 chapters.
Whether you are a newbie traveller or a seasoned one, this book is a treasure trove of information for both.
My most favourite chapters were;
10 Tips for Zero-waste travel
15 Unusual Travel Words With Beautiful Meanings
Travel Technology : 9 Apps that Enrich Your Travel Experience
How to Plan Your First Solo Trip
5 Reasons to Travel During Off-Season
How to Travel with Friends and Still Be Friends After That
The entire book was an enriching read, but these particular chapters had a lot of takeaways for me.
