Alone time : four cities, four seasons and the pleasures of solitude / Stephanie Rosenbloom.
Publisher: London : Bantam Press, 2018.
Resource type: Physical
ISBN: 9780593076767 (hbk.) :
Travelling with friends and family is usually thought of as a privilege. In theory, anyway. In practice, it's more often about debating which sights to see, panicking over diminishing phone batteries and bickering over what to eat. Not much joy in that. But alone you can do as you please. You can wander markets, relish silence, go to a park. Go to Paris. Why not? In 'Alone Time', New York Times travel columnist Stephanie Rosenbloom travels alone in four seasons to four remarkable cities - Paris, Istanbul, Florence and New York - exploring the sensory experience of solitude. Along the way she illuminates the psychological arguments for alone time, revealing that whether you recognise it or not, it's good to be alone now and then.
