Any Baedeker will tell us where we ought to travel but only Alain de Botton will tell us how and why With the same intelligence and insouciant charm he brought to How Proust Can Save Your Life de Botton considers the pleasures of anticipation the allure of the exotic and the value of noticing everything from a seascape in Barbados to the takeoffs at Heathrow Even as de Botton takes the reader along on his own peregrinations he also cites such distinguished fellow travelers as Baudelaire Wordsworth Van Gogh the biologist Alexander von Humboldt and the 18th century eccentric Xavier de Maistre who catalogued the wonders of his bedroom The Art of Travel is a wise and utterly original book Dont leave home without it
