We would like to hear about your favourite travel book – something you have read that has allowed you to escape for a moment, at a time when actual escape has been difficult. Whether it is a tome by Eric Newby, a journal about travel in Victorian times by Mary Kingsley, one of Bill Bryson’s popular classics or a more recent adventure by Helen Lloyd, what has transported you into distant realms and why? Maybe it sparked the trip of a lifetime, or has got you plotting your next adventure?
If you have a relevant photo, do send it in – but it’s your words that will be judged for the competition. Keep your tip to about 100 words
The best tip of the week, chosen by Tom Hall of Lonely Planet, will win a £200 voucher to stay at a Sawday’s property – the company has more than 3,000 in the UK and Europe. The best tips will appear on the Guardian Travel website, and maybe in the paper, too.
We’re sorry, but for legal reasons you must be a UK resident to enter this competition.
The competition closes on Tuesday 11 January 2022 at 9am GMT
