Every year on September 8th, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) celebrates International Literacy Day to raise awareness of the importance of literacy for the entire global community. One of the joys of reading is that it allows us to experience and learn about places we might otherwise never visit. This year, broaden your personal viewpoint, and experience other cultures by reading one of these fifteen books to fuel your wanderlust.

By: Vendela Vida
This isn't the romantic Casablanca you saw in the movies. As the main character is checking into her hotel, after traveling abroad alone, her bag and personal belongings are stolen. The police return a bag to her, but it belongs to someone else. She decides to keep it, however, and take on the identity of the passport and ID cards inside. Isn't that one of the perks of traveling? You can be anyone you want to be.
