Bites with Books

One of my favorite parts of travelling is bringing a book, a journal, and some postcards to a cafe or restaurant and letting myself relax and reflect a little bit.  It’s a cheap way to eat and find a place to sit for as long I want to (and if I find a bar with wifi, HOLLER!)  It’s interesting to look back at the books that I’ve read in different places, because their stories will forever remind me of being in those cities.
