Beschreibung:

Why do we travel? Ostensibly an act of leisure, travel finds us thrusting ourselves into jets flying miles above the earth, only to endure dislocations of time and space,
foods and languages foreign to our body and mind, and encounters with strangers on whom we must
suddenly depend. Travel is not merely a break from routine; it is its antithesis, a voluntary
trading in of the security one feels at home for unpredictability and confusion. In
Bewildered Travel Frederick Ruf argues that this confusion, which we might
think of simply as a necessary evil, is in fact the very thing we are seeking when we leave
home.
