    1 thought on “Happy Traveler P”

    1. I consider myself a happy traveler, but I was drawn to this book because I wanted to know if maybe there was something I was missing. As a psychologist, I understand (and had already learned) almost all of the concepts Kurtz discusses in her book. However, there were quite a few that I had not previously extended to my thinking regarding travel. I felt as if Kurtz explained psychological terms and theories in a manner that everyone could understand and apply directly to their lives. While I usua [...]

    2. Throughout most of this book I kept thinking, "Wait, did I write this book?!?!" Part psychology, part tips, part anecdotal, the author sums up many of the reasons why I started a travel advisory business.

    3. In THE HAPPY TRAVELER, Dr. Jaime Kurtz explores a variety of different ways to improve your vacation. I thought at first the book would be tips like how to pack better, or things like that. It’s more of tips on how to change your outlook, and how to match your travel choices to your personality. This is explained in the section, “Why Knowing Your Travel Personality Is Essential to Happy Travel.” The author explains that what makes a great experience for YOU is not at all what makes it grea [...]

    4. Travel can be anything but happy. "Remember you are still you". Plan at least parts of your trip to suit your personality and it will be a lot more enjoyable. A decent reminder of some common sense facts. I have travelled a fair bit and learned some of those facts the hard way. Plan ahead but do not over schedule. Slow down. Disconnect. Don't let technology crowd out your pleasure in the here and now. Focus. Savour. Go big. Go small. All true and reasonable advice. The advice to extend your trip [...]

    5. A good book on why some people are predictable in having a bad travel experience based on happiness research. Highly recommended for its common sense approach to enjoyable travel.

    6. Tons of pop psychology combined with random travel stories and fun facts. I enjoyed it but a bit more wordy/conversational than what I was looking for. Did I mention pop psychology?

    7. The Happy Traveler is really the psychology of travel. Throughout the book, the author looks at different aspects of travel and how our inner psychology plays out in how we plan and experience trips. In particular, I enjoyed the travel about the anticipation of travel. I have been contemplating taking a 'mystery vacation' and this chapter examined why this is so appealing. I also enjoyed the chapter about the challenges of vacationing in a hyper-connected world. While the writing wasn't the grea [...]

    8. Travel always sounds really exciting to me until I actually have to do it, so I thought I could use some tips from this book. The author has a lot of great suggestions on how to be happier traveling and I liked the way she pulls from current research and human psychology for those suggestions. A lot of it, though, seemed like common sense suggestions and it was incredibly repetitive, so I eventually started skimming the book and just reading sections I was interested in. Anyone about to travel o [...]

    9. This one is a great book for those of you who love to travel but sometimes find out the trip you planned and dreamed about was a disappointment and you can't figure out why.  I was a travel agent for 10 year so I travel a lot and learned that sometimes the planning and organizing was more fun then the actual trip.  What took me 10 years of traveling to learn this book explains and helps you figure out what kind of travel will make you happy.   This review was originally posted on Books In Br [...]

    10. Excellent book! I'll edit this review later. Am tired from a long day of driving across PA!Edit: Okay, I'm awake. This is a highly relatable and informative read for travelers. Light, conversational writing is mixed in with helpful facts and quotes. The content spans from staycations and post-travel feelings to handling conflicting interests -- and much more. I've been in many similar situations as the author, such as:- Coming back from travel earlier than expected.- Feeling different after stud [...]
