Time Out Melbourne

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page” – or so says St Augustine, who may have lived a millennia or two before the Travellers Bookstore opened up on Smith Street but the two share much the same philosophy. Beyond guidebooks, atlases and maps, the store interprets the notion of travel broadly, stocking travel fiction, biographies and cookbooks, along with books on gardening, history, art and design. While you’re there, you can order a fair trade coffee or stock up on travel-savvy items like a electricity plug converter or a passport pouch, just to make sure you look as touristy as possible at your chosen travel destination. For Bintang T-shirts and corn-row plaits, you may need to try elsewhere.
