"Travel far enough, you meet yourself." - David Mitchell

The world is a big place; here at QBD, we think there's nothing better than getting out and experiencing new places and different cultures - and we've got a great range of books to help you on your way in our Travel section.

Got a destination in mind? Come and browse our range of travel guides, and make sure you get the most out of your trip. We have a great selection of popular travel guides by Lonely Planet and DK Eyewitness for almost any country or city you can think of - from as far away as Dubai, London, New York, Japan, or China, or closer to home countries like New Zealand or Papua New Guinea.

Planning an island escape? We have plenty of guides for beautiful ocean oases like Hawaii, Fiji, Thailand, and Bali. If you're interested in learning a bit of your destination's native language, we've also got a huge range of language dictionaries, phrasebooks, and audiobooks to help you brush up on the local lingo. While you're on your adventure, record your experiences in one of our travel journals.

Searching for travel inspiration? Look no further than one of our great travel biographies. Follow Elizabeth Gilbert as she searches for happiness in Italy, India, and Bali in Eat Pray Love; discover your inner nomad with Tim Cope's On the Trail of Genghis Khan; take an American road trip with Billy Connolly in Tracks Across America. Even more inspiration can be found in our selection of beautiful photographic souvenir books, wonderful for kick-starting your travel imagination and the perfect coffee table accessory.

If you just need to know how to get where you're going, QBD has a huge range of maps and road atlases to keep you on the right road. We stock maps for far away countries like Africa or South America, as well as well-known cities like Paris or Los Angeles; we even have a great range of maps for Australian cities, including Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane. Whether it's an epic road trip through Europe or the United States, or just a ramble through our own wide brown land, we've got the map that'll get you there.

So whether your planning an overseas adventure, an island getaway, or a weekend escape, your first destination should be your local QBD!
