How to Travel
by The School of Life
edited by Alain de Botton
An original and comprehensive look at what it is we seek when we set off on an adventure abroad.
Going traveling is one of the few things we undertake in a direct attempt to make ourselves happy―and frequently, in fascinating ways, we fail. We get bored, cross, anxious, or lonely. It isn’t surprising: our societies act as if going traveling were simple, just a case of handing over the right sum of money. But a satisfying journey isn’t something we can simply buy, and sadly something that should fill us with excitement can often end up being a source of angst and stress.
