As many of us eagerly anticipate our upcoming holidays, this month's book collection encourages us to reconsider our summer-time travels and reflect on their essence. Do we embark on these journeys to break free from the monotony of our daily routines and mundane tasks? Are we looking for the ‘sublime’ and the ‘authentic’ to add meaning to our lives? Or do we aim to check off destinations on an ever-growing list of places to visit?

Regardless of your motives, these thought-provoking books will challenge your perspective and inspire a more mindful approach to travelling. Within their pages, you may discover that travel can be an art and a pathway to your authentic self. In the eloquent words of Albert Camus: “Far from our own people, our own language, stripped of all our props, deprived of our masks … we are completely on the surface of ourselves.”
