The Art Of Being A Tourist At Home


Staying close to home makes good sense: it’s cheaper, easier, less stressful and better for our health as well as the health of the planet. But this book doesn’t suggest that we should abandon all future travel plans. Instead, it shows travellers of all kinds how we can still harness the spirit of travel through the art of the ‘staycation, taking us on a journey through our neighbourhood streets and local parks, through museums and libraries, art galleries and bookshops. There’s wonder to be found in the theatre and music-making all around us, vibrancy of fresh-food markets, new friends to meet through hobbies and clubs, and so many lifetime learning opportunities to be had – all without the stress involved in planning a holiday.
