'Ideal for anyone looking to add a little more joy to their journeys' -- Woman's Way
'A timely exhortation to slow down and become more mindful of what has been lost by trading in analog pleasures for digital ones' -- Perceptive Travel
Unlike almost every travel book, this one is not about where to go, but how to go.
As our daily lives are dominated by devices and an always-connected mentality, more people are using their precious vacation time as an excuse to unplug and re-engage with their surroundings?and themselves.
Away & Aware is a beautifully illustrated guide to more mindful travel, with tips and advice for planning off-the-grid trips, minimalist packing, unplugging on the road, connecting with local culture, travelling with children, and easing back into the real world after returning from a trip.
