Jack Kerouac‘s “On The Road” has to be one of my books favorite books of all time, and in a strange way that book inspires me to travel. Strange because, and this will sound familiar for those who’ve read it, I absolutely have no ambition in wandering like Sal, Dean and all the disfunctional and deranged characters found in the book, but somehow that book, to me, has an appeal I can’t really explain.
But lately, due to its 50th anniversary, there has been a lot of writing going on Kerouac and its masterpiece. This is a small sample of what I’ve found lately, all of them have been posted in the last few days in my travel blogs I read regularly:
