I am delighting in armchair travel with a superb Kindle edition of The Collective Travels of Mark Twain. It includes Roughing It, The Innocents Abroad, A Tramp Abroad, and Following the Equator.
The first page of the preface of Roughing It had me hooked.
It is a record of several years of variegated vagabondizing, and its object is rather to help the resting reader while away an idle hour than afflict him with metaphysics, or goad him with science.
You might say I’m getting my mind right, even if my bags aren’t packed yet.
