Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Robert Frost.

At this stage of human evolution, the art of travelling slowly, has been lost through new-found conveniences like air travel, the tourism industry, television and the internet.

Which is great and everything… but something’s been lost. Something magical. Something that only comes through the act of being able to take your time and slowly discover things for yourself.

Since the dawn of our time, human beings have travelled in order to understand our place in the world. We all have an essential curiosity about the world we live in and we journey to satisfy our social, curious urges.

Lonely Planet’s Great Journeys is your own personal guide to undertaking slow, inspiring journeys, but most importantly, it will inspire you to get out there. Whether you want to travel by rail with the Orient Express, undertake the journeys of Burke and Wills, follow the literary path of Homer’s The Odyssey, or take a pilgrimage in the footsteps of Buddha, there’s something here to inspire the great explorer in you.

Sometimes, all you need is a little inspiration to get yourself off the beaten fast-track. Beat your own slow-track with Great Journeys and see what slowly unfolds.
