    I enjoyed much of the book but have not been familiar with ancient stories that are used as examples in the book. I found myself skimming some of those. The major points, however were very good. For those I would rate this a little higher.

    Have you ever suffered from writer's block? Ever had an idea floating in your head, but you didn't know where to start? How about just plain being stuck? The Way of The Traveler - Making Every Trip a Journey of Self-Discovery by Joseph Dispenza helps you to organize your thoughts, so that you can write your book, magazine article, or blog post, etc., in a structured and systematic way.Although the book was written primarily for those who want to recapture and write the memories of their trips. Others have found it to be helpful in helping them write in general. At times, (especially in the beginning) the verbiage and the pace of the book was laborious and taxing. With that being said, The Way of the Traveler is very thought-provoking and worthwhile, if you are willing to persevere to the end.The purpose of this book is to stimulate your creative juices, heighten your senses, and prepare you to become a more observant writer and recorder of the events on your travels. The Way of the Traveler helps you to hone your skills of perception, push you out of your comfort zone and write for the reader. Centuries and even years ago, it took days, weeks and even months to take a trip and write about it...not today. Nowadays, you can take a trip half way across the world in a matter of hours and write about it, all in the same day.THOUGHTS for your SOUL:•"If others seem indifferent to your travels, it is not because they are unconcerned about you - it is because they have not been changed by the same experiences that changed you."•"Exploring the meaning of the place is the key to understanding the journey. When we have learned what the place means for us, we have discovered The Way of the Traveler."So what's the lesson that the journey offers you? "What is the overriding motif of your travels?" What were you meant to learn/experience, if you believe that nothing happens by accident? What you have learned is self-discovery. "Your lessons from travel will be your own. They may not always be profound, but they will present themselves...if you allow them.According to The Tao, "a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." "Every time we leave home and go to another place, we open up the possibility of having something wonderful happen to us. When we move out of the familiar here and now, we set in motion a series of events that, taken together, bring about changes at the very root of our being"...and it is time to change.

    One of my passions - one of the paths on how I answer the age old question of "What Good Shall I do this day" is my work with Exchange Students from around the world and those from the United States getting prepared to travel abroad. One of the areas we work on is how to get to a good place where you can become present in the moment to be fully aware of the wonders that surround you. In "The Way of the Traveler: Making Every Trip a Journey of Self Discovery", author Joseph Dispenza has written a beginners guide to viewing travel as an inner journey. Undertaken with awareness, travel surely is one of the most available and most effective means to nourish, broaden, and quicken the soul. The destination does not matter as much as the attention we give to this understanding that all travel is inner travel.When we venture out into the world with that knowledge, we are giving meaning to even the most mundane trip -and giving ourselves the opportunity to grow our life of the spirit in ways we might never have imagined.Full of practical tips - especially of more meaningful journaling, The Way of the Traveler, and the wisdom within, is something I plan to implement and share with my exchange students. Recommended.

    "There is only one journey. Going inside myself." Rainer Maria RilkeThis book was recommended to me at a travel writing workshop. So many practical and inspirational suggestions about how to make travel more meaningful. I am going to Europe soon and excited about incorporating his suggestions which include:1. Making a travel shrine2. Packing spiritual qualities as well as material things3.Write out three goals and being them with you in your suitcase.4. Brings gifts to give to people you will meet: (ie photos of yourself, postcards from where you live).5. Collecting momentos of your trip.6. Rituals for saying goodbye7. Keep a feelings journal8. Find a theme and a lesson learned from your journey.I loved his writing style--clear and easy to read. Highly recommended to anyone who is going traveling soon.

    I read this in preparation for a personal trip I have coming up (and what's funny is~ the book actually travelled TO ME!! Found it in the living room...). It's short and friendly, and I found the exercises useful~ like making lists of relevant and irrelevant fears, what comes to mind when you picture the destination, and bringing along small gifts for those you meet. What I appreciate most however is the emphasis placed on being AWARE of every stage of the journey~ not to rush there but take in every moment as an opportunity for growth. This book helped me get into the mindset for a greater self-discovery, and I recommend it to anyone planning to travel, especially alone.

    A great book using exploring all aspects of life in the sense that everything can be looked at as a journey. A friend of my brother actually wrote this one, he is a pretty amazing guy and his writing is thought provoking.

    The author guides the reader to make every journey an internal one. From the planning stages through the return home, every step is about being forever changed and more enlightened by having visited in an entirely new place at an entirely new time.

    Very short little read, but one of the most inspiring books I've ever read about travel. All tour operators should have this book on their desks. It gives insight into a deeper purpose of travel, and how to make travel less about sightseeing and more about personal transformation.
