The idle traveller : the art of slow travel by Dan Kieran( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As we jet off on holiday, passing from airport lounge to hotel in our desperation to escape our everyday lives and find some better weather, we'd do well to ask ourselves what on earth we're doing. Do we really travel any more, or do we just arrive? The Idle Traveller calls on us all to re-assess why we travel and what travel has become. Besides extolling the virtues of staycation holidaying, Dan Kieran argues we need to bin the brochure, glide rather than fly, embrace disaster, be epic in our travel pursuits and immerse ourselves in the life-changing experience of true journeying. The Idle Traveller is an inspiration to travel more meaningfully and enjoy the journey. Isn't it about time you allowed your travel plans to slow down?

What is it about an engine roaring into life that makes grown men go weak at the knees? This is a book about machines and the men who love them. Some of these men are quite odd. Having always been a mechanaphobe himself, living in the slow lane, Dan Kieran is on a mission to discover the allure of machines and man's need for speed. Follow Dan as he climbs aboard a penny-farthing for a jaunt around west London, drives a steam train through the 'alps', joins the pit lane crew of Mitsubishi for the Britcar 24-hour race at Silverstone, discovers the link between Lawrence of Arabia and the 'wall of death', meets tank (yes, tank) collectors and the men behind 'digger ballet', learns to fly in the shadow of Douglas Bader and, along the way, wrestles with Aristotle, Jeremy Clarkson, Plato, Hunter S. Thompson and, mostly, himself

Three men in a float : across England at 15 mph by Dan Kieran( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the end of May 2007, three intrepid travellers set off on a journey of a lifetime between England's most easterly and westerly points - from Lowestoft Ness to Land's End in Cornwall. In choosing an electric milk float to carry them on their rambling epic and using only the roads available to drivers in the golden age of motoring, the three men found an antidote to the modern world's fixation with haste and proved that the dulcet tones of dawdling serendipity make better travelling companions than the nonsensical ravings of planning and speed. The only problem was the float needed to be charged at least once every 30 miles for eight hours of more, and next to nothing was arranged in advance. The three men decided to wing it. It took them a month
