Lingo Tours Book Tips

While we are waiting to be able to get back on the road again, the thing we still can do, is to read about all the places we will be visiting again, as soon as we can.

  • ‘The Travels of Ibn Battutah’ by Ibn Battuta
  • A scholar, theologian, and explorer, Ibn Battuta left his hometown of Tangiers, Morocco in 1326 at the age of 22, and traveled over 75,000 miles over the course of 27 years. Throughout his decades-long pilgrimage to the Middle and Far East, Battuta wrote down his reflections and impressions of the history, geography, culture, and agriculture he experienced. This medieval work is filled with wisdom that is relevant for the ages. Battuta famously wrote, “Traveling- it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” After visiting Batutta’s native Morocco for yourself, we know that you too, will have endless stories to tell.
