Get Inspired By The Best Travel Books In 2020

2020 is definitely a rough year with the Covid-19 Pandemic hit hard on every country and most of our (yes, including me) travel plan needs to be postponed until we are allowed to fly out of the country.

I was planning to re-visit Bali before the Government shut the border and I guess, a good call since we manage to control the spread and being from the worst nation to among the best in the world to handle the situation.

With few months left of 2020, I'm guessing some of us already looking forward to being able to travel abroad in 2021 and hopefully, we can as long as the destination is in a green zone and our government allowed international travel.
