The Art of Travel

by Alain de Botton

The Art of Travel

Alain de Botton

Overview

The School of Life is one of Youtube's oldest and most popular channels, with short explainer videos covering topics like relationships, art, culture, literature, history, and philosophy. But it's also an education company that teaches people around the globe in all areas where school lessons fell short.

The man behind this company is Alain de Botton, a Swiss-born British philosopher and writer. Looking at modern life through the lens of philosophy, The Art of Travel examines why travel is nowadays both so desirable, and yet often so disappointing. Instead of the latest tips and tricks, it will prompt you to ask more fundamental questions when touring around the globe.

"The pleasure we derive from journeys is perhaps more dependent on the mindset with which we travel, than on the destination we travel to."
