What’s it about
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.
The German original of OVERLAND is »Landreisen«, which 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 has released the English edition in March 2022 along with an all new Map of Train Routes around Europe.
This book has been designed to be a small piece of art. We used selected 70 % FSC paper with 100 grams for the inlay to present the text content and colourful illustrations in the best possible, yet most sustainable way. Along with the book, we send you a small pocket-size map in A5 when unfolded. It shows train routes to some of the most popular travel destinations in Europe by train, along with times and prices. Perfect for planing your next vacation!
