One of the most fun parts about travel is planning where you want to go next, the sites you want to see, and the memories you want to create there. There are so many exciting destinations to choose from and sometimes an overwhelming amount of resources. Sure we have all fallen victim to endless scrolling or getting lost in the corners of the web. But there is something magical about opening up a new book and diving into another world written on the pages. Join us, and travel the globe, book by book. Create deeper connections and share your dreams or memories of exploring the places we discover with fellow book worm travel bugs just like you. We will select a new wanderlust-inspiring book to read each month and host a virtual coffee hour (or happy hour) discussion, led by our travel experts and tour managers.
MEET YOUR JUNE HOST!
Hi my name is Cindy Singley and I am a Fox World Travel tour manager. I live in Auburn, Alabama and recently retired from Auburn University as Director of University Recruitment in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Part of my time at Auburn was spent in the travel industry and I had the opportunity to travel all over the globe. I feel so blessed and fortunate to be able to continue that passion for travel as a Tour Manager with Fox. While we can’t travel to our favorite or dream destinations right now, we can travel via a travel book club! I invite you to virtually join me in reading along and discussing various travel related books once a month.
The New Paris by Lindsey Tramuta
Is there anything more romantic than Paris? The sun through the cherry blossoms waking up for the first time in spring to the bustle of open air markets on the cobblestone streets. When we think about reading travel books, almost instantly are we transported to a little café in Paris, sipping our espresso and snacking on one-of-a-kind pastries. Naturally, this is where we decided to start our journey through the pages. One of the reasons we love this book and chose it to be our first book club read is because it does such a great job at acknowledging the Paris of our dreams and making us challenge those ideologies to really understand the new Paris. (hint, hint – hence the book title) Paris is still a city of quintessential European culture and beauty, but one that keeps evolving and blurring the lines between traditional and contemporary mentalities. If you love a journalistic style of writing, this book is for you and we cant wait to experience it together!
