What the Critics Say

"Thinking of those who intend to embark on a journey with a deep purpose, Cousineau explores why travelers plan trips and then, upon getting to their destination, have a sense of unfulfilled expectation. Cousineau suggests that this disappointment results from the way travelers engage with the place, not the site itself. Stories, anecdotes, quotes, vignettes, and practical suggestions from travelers and pilgrims throughout history create a guide to building a personal journey by learning to slow down and linger, savor, and absorb each stage - from the first strands of desire to travel through the journey to the return. To help the reader get involved, Cousineau includes a series of meditations and imagination exercises." ( Library Journal)"Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.'s, voice is soft and evocative of the traveler who is enchanted with all that he sees and experiences, lending credence to the work. From planning the trip, to going there (whether in your armchair or for real), Zimbalist's delivery will inspire you to think and experience the world around you more fully." ( AudioFile)
