A call to reassess how and why we travel, and examine our own sense of place, starting at home

The Idle Traveller is an inspiration to travel more meaningfully and enjoy the journey. As we jet off, 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? Besides extolling the virtues of staycations, Dan Kieran argues we need to toss 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, this book will transform the way you travel forever.
