This guide shows readers how to turn each trip into a journey of self-discovery. The author explains how each holiday or business trip may be viewed as both an outward exploration of unfamiliar geography, architecture, history and foreign customs, and an inner journey into self-identity and personal meaning. Currie advocates journalling as a way to give form and structure to thought and fleeting impressions, increasing our insights into unconscious motivations and impulses. He walks the reader through the entire process of effective journalling: selecting the appropriate journal and writing tools, organizing the journal into different sections, deciding upon the appropriate "spiritual touchstones", identifying which archetype (or Buddha nature) is most present in the reader's mindset during a particular day or event. The author includes helpful anecdotes and examples from his own extensive travel experiences to guide the reader through the process, offering tips for planning trips, determining objectives, organizing and allocating time, budgeting, travelling with others, packing, staying healthy and dealing with emergencies.
