If you are traveling there are inevitably times when you will want something to do to keep you occupied. Whether this is during down time after a day exploring or during long flights or train journeys.
I am a huge fan of quizzes and puzzles which is one reason you will find them on my website but I also enjoy relaxing with some colored pencils and coloring-in. The fairly recent phenomenon of adult coloring-in books seems to have resonated with lots of people if their popularity is anything to go by.
This post combines a love of travel with the enjoyment of relaxing and coloring with some of the best travel coloring books available. Color in and be inspired by the various destinations covered in these books.
These are ideal gifts for travel lovers too so if you are looking for gift inspiration for the travel lover in your life you will find it in this article. (Just don’t forget to buy some colored pencils to go with them!)
