Best Books/Music for Holidays

If the luggage is already packed and you still have some space on the side pocket, then take a book! The trip will become even more thoughtful – you will bond to the cultural heritage of the country flying to. If there is no space for book in your baggage, then some local rhythms added to your MP3 playlist may be a pleasant substitute.
BOOK

Recommend to read M. de Cervantes “Don Quixote”. This is cult novel-parody that cheerfully tells the story of an idealist Don Quixote and his friend Sancho Panza, and surely their adventures in Spain.

BOOK

Recommend to read the “Invisible cities” of Italo Calvino. The Venetian Marko Polo tells a story to Mongolian khan Kublai about the spectacular places he has visited. Every story is a short and picturesque allegorical etude about different cities. Light and easy reading that will encourage you for the adventure.

BOOK

We recommend to read the “The Arabian Nights: A Caravan of Moroccan Dream” of Tahir Shah. The incredible, exotic stories of eastern wisdom, which takes to the unlimited world of phantasy. The book is mostly about the cheerful and love-filled adventures of Tahir Shah: life with jeans, travel to the desert, Fez market…It’s the book aspiring for new thoughts and dreams.

BOOK

Recommend to read the “Natural Novel” of G. Gospodinov. The setting of the action happens in the end of 20th century. The main character, from first sight, talks about nothing- toilets, bees, flies and the Bible- but his story reveals the true, nude, painful and simple life of Bulgarian mode of life. This is everything that you won’t see while vising museums, cafes and fascinating old towns.

BOOK

Recommend to read the “Greek Mythology” of Vanda Morkovska. Greek myths are immortal, as well as the heroes, giants, Gods, fauns, nymphs and nature spirits of the stories. You cannot ignore the antic ruins, sculptures or drawings while the visit in Greece. After reading this book you will definitely be at least a little bit more familiar to the life of the historical Gods before they became the decorations of the cities.

MUSIC

Recommend to listen to the lively rhythms of Greek islands:
 
BOOK

Recommend to read the “Black book” by Orhan Pamuk. The centre of the story is Istanbul, the city-labyrinth making people to disappear. To overcome this roman is as hard as walk all over Istanbul. Therefore, it’s better to enjoy the random parts of the stories. Maybe it is about Istanbul’s nooks, shops, eastern ornaments, Turkish history or religion?

Recommend to listen to the calming Turkish melodies:
 
BOOK

Recommended book – Paulo Coelho “The Alchemist”. The book (that is being translated to the greatest number of foreign languages) tells a story of Shepheard from Andalusia and his way towards Egypt to find the treasure. But in reality, the true reason for going to Egypt is different- it is only an impetus for reflections, the treasure is not the real one, but rather a treasure of soul he finds on the way to Egypt. The book is full of bright and philosophical ideas as well as Eastern wisdom, however, philosophizing does not entangle, vice versa- the book is an easy reading and can become your discovery on the way to Egypt.

We recommend to listen to Egyptian melodies’ polyphony:
