10 adult coloring books that inspire travel

I noticed a positive effect of coloring long time ago. Turning a black-and-white page into an intricate illustration helped me survive long Ukrainian winters with their catastrophic lack of color. Years later coloring came in handy when I searched for ways to reduce parenting stress. Whenever I had a free minute,  I used to grab my pencils and let my imagination take me away. Meanwhile Adriana was growing, and coloring became one of favorite mother-and-daughter pastimes. Now we have regular coloring sessions with all three kids, and it’s so much fun.

Adult coloring books are rather trendy at the moment, and I like the idea of them. This simple and pleasant activity helps one expand their creative mind, awaken a child in them and bring more beauty to the world. And I’ve already mentioned the pacifying and calming effect. Travel coloring books for adults are especially charming. They inspire wanderlust and give us a chance to explore the faraway lands without leaving home. Also, they make a wonderful gift for someone with inquisitive mind and passion for travel. Here I’ve selected a few travel themed coloring books you might find interesting (click the photos to find more information):
