Vacation trips are one of those rare things that we undertake solely for our enjoyment and often - in very different ways - fail miserably in our intentions. We are bored, in a bad mood, insecure or lonely. We are led to believe that travelling today is a very simple thing where you only have to invest money. But a nice holiday trip cannot be bought just like that: Travelling is an art that has to be learned. That is why this book is the right travel guide - not for a specific holiday destination, but for travelling itself. It helps you find the holiday destination that is right for you and explains what you can do there, how to create unforgettable moments and why hotel rooms can be so liberating.

"Small things can often delight us more than big things. Knowing this is an important step on the way to realising how much good we thoughtlessly accept. Experience small pleasures with full enjoyment when you go on holiday."


Examples from the 30 essays:
- How do I choose my holiday destination- What is "exoticism" anyway?
- Does sunshine matter? - The convenience of the airport
- The desire to talk to strangers- The small restaurant
- Drawing instead of taking pictures- Holidays at home
