Adventures in going nowhere


It may be surprising to discover that the renowned travel writer Pico Iyer thinks that sitting quietly in a room might be the ultimate travel adventure. In his recently released book The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere Iyer looks at mindful ways to experience life and travel. This video of his TED Talk about the book explores how Iyer sees technology leading us to seek spaces for retreat and contemplation. It’s worth 15 minutes of your time before your next trip.
