Publisher's Summary

Aside from love, few actvities seem to promise us as much happiness as going traveling: taking off for somewhere else, somewhere far from home, a place with more interesting weather, customs, and landscapes. But although we are inundated with advice on where to travel, few people seem to talk about why we should go and how we can become more fulfilled by doing so.

Hard to read

I m glad I read it because it opened my eyes to traveling with intention, but I can’t say I liked it. I would not have read this except for school. Wouldn’t recommend it either.

a terrible book

if you want to waste your money and time, buy this book. i like alan de botton's speaks and already had seen a lot on youtube. so instead of buying this book and wasting your money and time, go to youtube and see his speaks for free. this book is about everything, but the art of travel.

Great book... better to read than listen though.

Great book... better to read than listen though. The pace is just a little quick for an audio book.

Good for room travel

Insightful and beautifully read, with some moments of gentle humour. Sometimes seemed to wander off the topic of travel but always came back to the point eventually - often in a thought-provoking way.
