Our souls travel at 3km/h

From Sunday Morning, 10:10 am on 2 June 2024

Nick Hunt is a travel writer who has published three books about walking in various parts of Europe – Outlandish, Where the Wild Winds Are and Walking the Woods and the Water. 

In a recent essay, published in Noema Magazine, he explored pilgrimage through three stages which he classified as departure, initiation, and return. He said the latter is the most neglected yet is the most important.  

Nick joins Jim on Sunday Morning to discuss what travelling does to our souls.
