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.
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.
