Escaping the Grind--Books About Leaving It All Behind!

A list of books with the basic premise of picking up and leaving for a remote, tropical, or other adventurous destination--Permanently! (Or maybe not permanently...) Or books that evoke a feeling of "road tripping" or general sentiments of escaping the daily routine! A few boozy-books thrown in for good measure, because escaping with a glass of wine can substitute for an adventure sometimes.
