Publisher's Summary

Millions of people each year take trips. But how many are able to make each trip a journey of personal growth? The Way of the Traveler is the book to help people make the most of every trip. It's about learning to make the time before, during, and after travel an enriching experience; drawing on personal virtues to help you through potentially stressful encounters; and setting goals to ensure that even the most mundane two-day business trip brings new insights. The Way of the Traveler helps the listener learn how to make every travel experience more meaningful and rewarding, structured as a series of short reflections combined with practical, thought-provoking activities. Issues considered, among others, include: The Call to Journey, The Decision to Go, Spiritual and Material Provisions, Gifts, Being Present, Collecting Mementos, The Return, Displaying the Treasures, and The Lesson.

Too much zen, not enough travel

I was disappointed by this download. I was annoyed at the outset by the background music that made the reading of the title and opening information hard to hear. I love travel and had high hopes for enjoying this audiobook, but I agree with the other reviewer; it's a bunch of New Age babble ("every journey is an inner journey"). In place of listening to this, I'd recommend reading Alain de Botton's "The Art of Travel."

The Way of the Traveler

This book is not worth listening to. It is new age babble and full of mostly common sense. Don't bother.
