The Idea of Home. John Hughes. Treasure Palaces. Maggie Fergusson. Dan Kieran is a travel writer, one who does not go on planes, preferring slow travelling instead. But he admits that his slow travel began as a result of his fear of flying.
The book is divided into 7 chapters, each covering a different travel-related idea. As Robert Louis Stevenson said: To travel is hopefully a better thing than to arrive. These days with fast moving aeroplanes, we try to get to the place as fast as possible, as if the aim of the travel was more important than the whole experience of travelling; from planning, getting to the place, exploring the place and getting to know its people. The author gives us plenty of examples of such slow travels he accomplished, like travelling by train from Venice to Prague in fourteen hours in , from London to Warsaw 10 years later , or by a vintage electric milk float across Britain with maximum speed of 15 miles per hour.
Travelling does not have one name, e. Rupert and his wife embarked upon this journey as an act of love towards their son. She flew with her week old daughter from Boston to Chimayo seeking a miracle cure healing dirt for her father diagnosed with an inoperable lung cancer.
After her visit to Chimayo miracles happened, although life once again showed that it does not follow a plan, but is rather an unpredictable sequence of events. Dan Kieran, The Idle Traveller. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Comment Your email address will not be published.
