Lobstergirl The title "Best Historical Travel Journals" and the description ("this is a list of books about or based on memorable travels and amazing adventures") seem to be slightly different categories. A journal is written by the person doing the travels, and historical suggests older. How old is of course a squishy idea, but "historical fiction" often requires a work to be set at least 50 years in the past. So a "journal" is something different from a book "about or based on memorable travels," which of course can include current day books describing travels of those in the near or distant past.

That's longwinded, but how do we resolve it? I've been voting as if only journals are to be included.
