This is an extraordinary book which I have read and re-read since it came out in 1998. It is so deeply layered with meaning, remarkable stories and insights that it has been a book I have come back to time and again for wisdom at different junctures in my life. It is an invaluable guide to making travel meaningful as a pilgrimage and to the creative process. Throughout the 5 years that I traveled and wrote my second book, I traveled with two books always - this book and John O'Donahue's Beauty. It's not a "must-read"; it's a "must read many times" because of the depth of insight it offers.

My husband bought this book last year on the recommendation of a friend and I came across it recently while sorting through our kindle account. In light of my (then upcoming) trip to Morocco I thought I would give it a read. I thoroughly enjoyed and was moved by this book. As I read through I highlighted thirty-nine passages, and each one, when I go back and read now, sets ablaze a host of ideas and reflections.

One of the highlights of travel is attaining those moments of travel nirvana. Turning a corner and seeing the Eiffel Tower was one such moment for me. It's the times when you suddenly realise you've arrived somewhere that you've always dreamed of. It's a strange sense of achievement and pride and excitement and awe. It's stepping into one of your fantasies, all the while feeling the ground hard beneath your feet.

But all too often that rush of emotion is reserved for the big ticket items: Woohoo! Eiffel Tower/Grand Canyon/Big Ben/Robben Island/Victoria Falls. And yet even for the regular traveler, in practise those moments are few and far between. They're two hours in two weeks. And in between?

I suspect that "in between" there is a choice.

There's routine and familiarity (possible even in the most remote of places) and frustration, maybe a general level of interest with what is passing us by. It's enough to fill a day and feel rewarding but doesn't necessarily speak to your soul, or kindle that fire in the pit of your stomach.

Or there's, what shall we call it? Mindfulness? Awareness? Presence? It's the art of seeing what you're not conditioned to see. It's looking up and down, and in gutters, and on rooftops. And all around.

It's watching the orange fall off a cart and roll down a street, dodging between feet, chased by a stranger and then thrown through the sky, back to its rightful owner. It's a cat in a thunderstorm hiding from the rain under a brown plastic stool. Or it's a man running from his building on his way to work, kicking a coke bottle top with the energy of early morning and then almost dying of embarrassment when it collides with a passerby.

But perhaps most importantly it's finding a way to not only to remember to notice, but to stop and enjoy and capture those moments, and bring them inside, preferably with a sense of wonder and pleasure, and holding them there forever.

And it all takes practise. Reading this book is one of those practises.

A professor in college recommended this book to me after I was accepted into a study abroad course to England. The course wasn't religious in nature and it most definitely wasn't a pilgrimage, or at least I didn't think so. A couple chapters into this book and I realized, maybe it was. I felt that drawing need to visit England, along with other countries I drew my heritage to, but I never had a word for it other then travel.
Because of this book I took my study abroad course as a pilgrimage and it was so much more important because of that. It wasn't just a $4000 class but an opportunity for me to open up and attempt to discover a deeper reason for my need to travel.
Now planning a trip to Ireland, a place even more important to my heritage and sense of self, I am rereading the book and rediscovering aspects I had forgotten.

To anyone who travels, for work or play, or anyone who would like to understand how a walk around your own neighborhood could be a pilgrimage.
I recommend it highly.

I recently read this book after coming back to the US from Bhutan. It was just what I needed to help me find meaning out of the many mixed emotions I had while traveling. It was very difficult returning to the US after being in such an incredibly different culture. This book helped me integrate my process. It was amazing how much I could relate to the sacred journey of a pilgrimage. This is a precious book I will keep and read again. Traveling has so much more meaning to me than simply being a "tourist". This book helped me realize why traveling is such a powerful experience for me. I highly recommend this book to anyone but especially to those who seek a spiritual path. It is well written and encourages the reader to self examine.
