"Thought-provoking, encouraging, and inspiring" (Gretchen Rubin) reflections on the power of travel to transform our daily lives--from the iconoclastic travel writer, scholar, and author of Vagabonding For readers who dream of travel, yearn to get back out on the road, or want to enrich a journey they're currently on, The Vagabond's Way explores and celebrates the life-altering essence of travel. Each day of the year features a one-page meditation on an aspect of the journey, anchored by words of wisdom from a variety of thinkers--from Stoic philosopher Seneca and poet Maya Angelou to Trappist monk Thomas Merton and Grover from Sesame Street. Iconoclastic travel writer and scholar Rolf Potts embraces the ragged-edged, harder-to-quantify aspects of travel that inevitably change travelers' lives for the better in unexpected ways. The book's various sections mirror the phases of a trip, including - dreaming and planning the journey: "All life-affecting journeys--and the unexpected wonders they promise--become real the moment you decide they will happen."- embracing the rhythms of the journey: "The most poignant experiences on the road occur in those quiet moments when we recognize beauty in the ordinary."- finding richer travel experiences: "Developing an instinct to venture beyond the obvious on the road allows you to see places as mysteries to be investigated."- expanding your comfort zone: "No moment of instant gratification can compare to savoring an experience that has been earned by enduring the adversity that comes with it." The Vagabond's Way encourages you to sustain the mindset of a journey, even when you aren't able to travel, and affirms that travel is as much a way of being as it is an act of movement.
