Shelves: 2008, travel
for the first time in my life, i feel like i've encountered a buddhist evangelist. the description i read of this book just didn't prepare me for how overbearingly religious it would be. i might have enjoyed it more if i'd realized in advance. there were some good enough tips in here, but it wasn't particularly helpful for me. oh well.

A mix of Buddhism 101 and an inventive style of journaling. Using check-ins to ascertain one's mental state, Currie's style of journaling invites the unconscious to open up to the universe, allowing for more surprising (and rewarding) travel. It was a bit much for me to incorporate into my own life, but the ideas suggested were inventive and inspired me to look at my own journaling style.

Some good info on how to set up a travel journal. Too many charts, tables ("...the end product of table 11-2, captured in column 4, are your insights [gained on your trip]."), and graphs. Take it or leave it.

This is good for travelers who not only trust themselves, but trust their spirit as well. There are a lot of references to Buddha(s) and that could make non spiritual people a little uncomfortable. But overall, this book offers creative insight for the spirited traveler.

Generated a "well, duh" response in me, but might have been a perfect fit about 20 years ago...

I did not really enjoy this book, not what I was expecting. Parts of it were interesting but for the most part, unrealisitic and difficult to follow. More spiritual then I expected.
