With over 65 million copies sold and translated into 80 different languages (a Guinness World Record by the way), I knew The Alchemist was clearly a must-have on my wanderlust reading list!

A classic traveler’s tale, Paulo Coelho tells a story of a young, poor shepherd who follows a vision through the deserts of Egypt in search of treasure and good fortune.
