I love travel memoirs, I love reading about cultures and real life adventures.
If anyone has recommendations about their favorites I'd love suggestions!

While not as funny as Pole to Pole or Around The World in 80 Days, this is a worthy addition to the "Michael Palin travelogue" oeuvre. I read it as a follow up to Into Thin Air. (Weirdly, Palin arrives at a memorial at Annapurna for one of the main climbers who survived the '96 Everest season.). The book chronicles his journey across the mountain range from Pakistan to Bangladesh. I definitely want a summer hut and a yak in Bhutan.
