The Idle Traveller

by Dan Kieran
£7.99   paperback  AA Publishing (Automobile Association) (2013)

The Idle Traveller by Dan Kieran As we jet off on holiday, passing from airport lounge to hotel in our desperation to escape our everyday lives and find some better weather, wed do well to ask ourselves what on earth were doing. Do we really travel any more, or do we just arrive? The Idle Traveller calls on us all to re-assess why we travel and what travel has become. Besides extolling the virtues of staycation holidaying, Dan Kieran argues we need to bin the brochure, glide rather than fly, embrace disaster, be epic in our travel pursuits and immerse ourselves in the life-changing experience of true journeying.

The Idle Traveller is an inspiration to travel more meaningfully and enjoy the journey. Isnt it about time you allowed your travel plans to slow down?


The seven rules of slow travel

Celebrates classic travel writers who can show you a new point of view on a place
