Richard Kaufmann once travelled to Morocco, unintentionally with no money, simply because he had set off without any kind of plan. It changed him, and the way he travelled in future. Here, he shares his stories and vision for how we can all holiday in comfort, without wrecking the environment. And we don’t have to take especially long, or go particularly far. We find the most beautiful destinations when we travel overland. Normally we never see them, because we fly right over them.

»Landreisen« has been sold over 5000 times in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. It’s a 224 pages thick book on slow traveling that has been praised by many readers. The Indie publishing house RAZ EL HANOUT is now about to release an English edition of that book, complete with a new map of train routes all over Europe.

This book has everything you need in a read. Humour, entertainment, love, a dash of tension and, best of all, plenty of inspiration.


Amusing essays that you won’t want to read on the fly.
