More About the Book Why We Travel: For years, Patricia Schultz has been telling us where to travel, now she is telling why to travel, revealing what makes her such a compelling guide to richly rewarding experiences. Pairing stunning photos with pearls of wisdom, lists, and essential travel tips, Schultz showcases how travel enriches us and explores why people choose to travel. The book leads with the idea that travel is food for the soul and one of the most richly rewarding experiences we can have, whether we travel near or far, in person or virtually. Quotes about travel, affirmations, ideas, and travel hacks appear alongside gorgeous, transportive full-color images of people, places, and things around the world. From a man hand-rolling cigars in Cuba, to lion cubs in Botswana, and stunning natural wonders like the Waitomo Glowworm Caves in New Zealand, Why We Travel is filled with photos so captivating readers can’t wait to be there. Alongside these evocative images are Schultz’s own stories from some of her most rewarding trips, including her safari in Zambia where she found wisdom from a classroom of five-year-olds, her post-collegiate explorations of Florence, and the comedy of mishaps she and friends endured on a canal trip through southern France.
Why We Travel reminds readers that travel is investment in ourselves. In its essence, the book is about inspiring readers to book a ticket, pack a bag, and dive headlong into an adventure.
