The Natural Explorer - Tristan Gooley

£9.99

Description

What: The most rewarding travel experiences do not depend on our destination or the length of our journey, but on our levels of awareness. A short walk can compare with an epic journey, when we take the time to focus on the things that dramatically enrich each journey.

Combining the work of the some of the most insightful travellers of the past two thousand years with his own experience, Tristan Gooley demonstrates how it is possible to connect profoundly with the lands we travel through.

Exploration is no longer about hardship or long distances, it is about celebrating the sense of connection and discovery that is possible in all our travel

How: "I for one will never look at the British countryside in quite the same way again." Stephen Moss, Countryfile Magazine.

Who: Tristan Gooley is a writer, navigator and explorer. He has led expeditions on five continents, spent time with the Tuareg, Bedouin and Dayak in some of the remotest places on Earth and pioneered a renaissance in the rare art of natural navigation.

Tristan is the only living person to have both flown solo and sailed single-handed across the Atlantic. He is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Institute of Navigation and Vice Chairman of the UK's largest independent travel company, Trailfinders. He lives in West Sussex.
    Why: We have hand picked a small but growing selection of books which we hope complement the fair trade products we stock. Inspiring, engaging and educational, we hope that these books can help move forward the discussion and debate around creativity, social justice and sustainability.
