The Art of Travel by Alain De Botton

“There is an urge to say, β€˜I was here, I saw this and it mattered to me.”



From faraway France πŸ‡«πŸ‡· to the intimate settings of your own bedroom πŸ›Œ , De Botton explores what it means to travel. As it seems, it can happen anywhere. He also brings along with him “travel guides”, historical/literary heroes like Flaubert, Alexander Humboldt, Vincent Van Gogh πŸ–Ό and many others, using their personal wisdom to expound on travelling and art, which I found to be very special and eye-opening πŸŽ€βœ¨Β 


You’ll become a more mindful traveller πŸ’­ and think twice about trying to “explore the whole of Europe in 7 days”. You’ll also start to bring so much more to the table of your own travels.


Word painting πŸ– and sketching will open up details in the scenes before you – whether it’s a mountain πŸ—» or a menu. A completely lovely read about, quite literally, the ART of travel πŸ–ŒΒ 


Curiosity level: 😻 Amazement
