Why We Travel? Here’s 100 Reasons to See the World

Published on Sep 18, 2022

Patricia Schultz, a veteran travel journalist with over 30 years of experience, will be at Vroman’s Bookstore on Tuesday, Sept. 20, to discuss her book, “Why We Travel: 100 Reasons to See the World.”

The event begins at 7 p.m.

From the author of “1,000 Places to See Before You Die,” “Why We Travel” is filled with personal stories and anecdotes, quotes that inspire, and reasons to motivate-plus images so lush you can’t wait to be there.

In the book, Schultz reveals what makes her such a compelling guide and what makes travel such a richly rewarding experience. She tells about the time she was on safari in Zambia yet found her most lasting memory in a classroom of five-year-olds, and of the comedy of mishaps that she and friends endured on a canal trip through southern France – and how it brought them together in an unexpected way.

She quotes favorite authors and luminaries on the importance of travel and, in a series of memorable aphorisms, gets to the essence of why to travel.

The book is published by Workman Publishing.

Tuesday’s event is free to attend.
