Travel2Books is a division of The British Connection Inc. a special interest tour operator company focusing on educational special interest travel
including tourism marketing and consultancy.
The Travel2Books website and newsletter feature literary tours and experiences throughout the world with an emphasis on Britain,
Ireland and Europe and places in the world with a British connection.
The tours that we feature on the site offer experiences of literary travel, travel in the footsteps of a given author or visiting a country and
the locations of a film about a book. The site is also a resource for the armchair literary traveler who wishes to learn and experience but not
travel or not just now. It can also be used to add to independent researches into travel to a particular country or relating to a particular
author or book.
The articles that we feature are written specifically for Travel2Books or have been written by a participant in one of our British Connection or
Irish Connection programs giving the reader a hands on view of what it was like to be there and to be a part of the group visiting Britain or Ireland
or New Zealand - whatever country or place is significant to the story. Some of these tours are featured on www.specialtytravel.com
Articles about our literary tours have been featured in the much loved (but no longer living) Victoria Magazine - an article on the Shakespeare tour
by Erika Mark in 2000 was very well received by readers and the tour won the Top Ten tours of the Year 2000 award for the educated traveler by
The Educated Traveler magazine. The Jane Austen tour was mentioned in a Questions and Answers section of Travel and Leisure and The New
York Times featured the Northern Writers tour in the Sunday Travel section Questions and Answers. The tours have also been the focus for
travel on www.bbcamerica.com and are listed on the Literary Traveler site www.literarytraveler.com
