Fifty inspiring photos are packed inside a full-color book that makes a perfect gift.
Whether you use a guidebook, a trip book generated by a travel agency, or book your own trip, travel and tourism offer profound lessons. Cheap airline tickets, which hotel to use, who booked the cheapest flight, and whether you used Travelocity or Expedia all fall by the wayside the moment you take the keys to the rental car or even the day you pack your luggage.
Lessons about the external world and internal life are discovered by flying, riding the train, taking a cruise, or opting for walking tours. The only visa you'll need is curiosity, and the only passport that matters is a sense of adventure. The Zen of Travel distills those experiences into one enriching book.
A soulful collection for every business or adventure traveler, holiday lover, backpacker, and anyone seeking a moment of peace, The Zen of Travel celebrates the journeys and the destinations that can make us happier, healthier, calmer, and more loving.
