Michael Palin, no less, became a firm fan. ‘The art of natural navigation,’ declared the Old Pythonian globetrotter, ‘is something we should never have forgotten.

Great book on navigational knowledge!
  • Pruster
You have to admire anyone who not only reminds you to smell the roses and be more mindful, but lives it himself everyday and every mile.
The antipathy of what surrounds us.
Observation and intellectual curiosity almost to an extreme.
Fun and enlightening.
