    Description
    In this book, Alain de Botton, author of the bestselling 'The Consolations Of Philosophy', takes us on a journey through the satisfactions and disappointments of travelling. Dealing - among other things - with airports, exotic carpets, holiday romance and hotel mini-bars, this humorous, eye-opening and thought-provoking book reveals the hidden motivations, expectations and complications of our voyages into the wide world.

    Accompanying him on his journey are writers, artists and thinkers who were inspired by travel in all its forms: Gustave Flaubert, Edward Hopper, Baudelaire, Wordsworth, Van Gogh, Ruskin - all ready to give us their insights on the curious business of travelling.

    The perfect antidote to those guidebooks that tell us what to do when we get there, 'The Art Of Travel' tries to explain why we really wanted to go there in the first place - and modestly suggests how we could learn to be happier on our journeys.
