Even on a trip to a place we've never been before, where there's sure to be plenty to capture our attention, there are still bound to be those moments during travel and downtime when some recreational reading material will come in handy.
We of course have the trusty Lonely Planet Guide to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands.
I'm bringing a book of Daily Meditations that I'm hoping will provide at least a few moments for grounding/centering each day. It's a little bulky, though, so it will have to prove its worth quickly. 🙂
I'm also bringing The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human World, after a glowing recommendation by a friend. The subject matter - relationship between human and nonhuman life - seems appropriate for visiting a country that has made the rights of non-human life a part of its constitution.
Kelly is bringing a few copies of The Economist magazine, which is always sure to provide some insight and perspective into news and politics of the day.
She'll also probably be bringing some reading material related to her NEXT trip to the Middle-East later this summer.
Anything else that we should have along to read?
