Pamela Metz has written The Tao of Travel as a book for both inner and outer journeys. The book follows the structure and honors the spirit of the classic Tao Te Ching attributed to the Chinese sage, Lao Tzu. The author has created this book for those readers who travel in the physical world as well as those whose travels occur in the dream time of the mind. Each of the short 81 chapters of The Tao of Travel is an opportunity to reflect on the journey of life. There are images of being a stranger, leaving home, missing home, and returning home. Other images of delays, wandering, finding a guide, losing the way, and discovering wisdom are based in reality, in the spiritual realm, and in the metaphorical aspects of traveling. When one lives life as a journey, there are many beginnings and endings. When one reads The Tao of Travel, readers discover that beginnings offer insight and endings offer an opportunity for beginning again. This book can be carried on journeys for reflection, meditation and simple enjoyment of the traveling experience. It can also remain at home for the returning traveler to remember and reflect upon the highlights of the last journey while preparing for the excitement and anticipation of the next traveling experience.
