Dan Kieran, AA Publishing con The Idle Traveller
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, we'd do well to ask ourselves what on earth we're doing. Do we really travel any more or do we just arrive? The Idle Traveller calls on us all to re-assess what we're setting off in search of and what travel has become. 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. Full of inspiration for making the journey more meaningful and fun, The Idle Traveller will transform the way you travel forever.
