    Inspirational travel films/books.

    Sad to say it, but i watched The Beach again yesterday. Since visiting Thailand the film, and the book to a higher degree, bring back great memories, and fill me with the desire to set off again, sooner rather than later. Just wondering what films or books do it for you?

    Holy Cow by Sarah MacDonald made me want to see a lot more of India. Having only been to Goa and Kerala sure, I have the stamp on my passport, but I still don't feel like I've been to India somehow...

    I love Eleni by Nick Gage. I am very interested in Greece and its history, and this book covers a reallife story during the Greek Civil War. I would highly recommend it.

    Shantaram - I started reading this in India and it made me look at the locals differently (in a good way). He describes things that you see in such an amazing way, better than I could ever deescribe it myself. Didnt get the chance to visit Mumbai (Bombay) where it is mainly set but I will definitely go on my next trip.

    Any of the Inspector Rebus novels by Ian Rankin. If you haven't been to Edinburgh these will make you want to.
