Description

From the author of the Number One bestseller, THE CONSOLATIONS OF PHILOSOPHY, this is an inspirational and witty guide to how to make our travels go better. Calling upon such guides as Hopper, Flaubert and Ruskin, de Botton accompanies us on an eye-opening and entertaining tour of the philosophical questions behind our desire to travel - and the capricious nature of our thoughts and emotions when we do.show more
