Der Band versammelt Beiträge, die im Rahmen einer Tagung am Interdisziplinären Zentrum für die Erforschung der Europäischen Aufklärung gehalten wurden. Diese stellte sich die Aufgabe, einem Forschungsdesiderat nachzugehen: dem Stellenwert der Fußreise innerhalb der deutschsprachigen Reiseliteratur des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts. Behandelt werden autobiographische und dichterische Texte, die in exemplarischer Weise Auskunft geben über einen Sachverhalt: der in der zweiten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts einsetzenden sozialen Aufwertung der Reise zu Fuß (und deren Reflexion), die einhergeht mit einer Raumerfahrung, die aus der Sicht des Kutschenreisenden so nicht möglich war. - Ergänzt wird der Band durch eine Quellenbibliographie zu den Fußreisen in dem behandelten Zeitraum.

What does it mean to be out walking in the world, whether in a landscape or a metropolis, on a pilgrimage or a protest march? In this first general history of walking, Rebecca Solnit draws together many histories to create a range of possibilities for this most basic act. Arguing that walking as history means walking for pleasure and for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit homes in on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from the peripatetic philosophers of ancient Greece to the poets of the Romantic Age, from the perambulations of the Surrealists to the ascents of mountaineers. With profiles of some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction - from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Rousseau to Argentina's Mother of the Plaza de Mayo, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja - Wanderlust offers a provocative and profound examination of the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker.

Spanning fifteen years of travel, beginning when she is a sophomore in college, Wanderlust documents Elisabeth Eaves’s insatiable hunger for the rush of the unfamiliar and the experience of encountering new people and cultures. Young and independent, she crisscrosses five continents and chases the exotic, both in culture and in romance. In the jungles of Papua New Guinea, she loses herself—literally—to an Australian tour guide; in Cairo, she reconnects with her high school sweetheart, only to discover the beginning of a pattern that will characterize her life over the long-term: while long-distance relationships work well for her, traditional relationships do not. Wanderlust, however, is more than a chronological conquest of men and countries: at its core, it’s a journey of self-discovery. In the course of her travels, Eaves finds herself and the sense of home she’s been lacking since childhood—and she sheds light on a growing culture of young women who have the freedom and inclination to define their own, increasingly global, lifestyles, unfettered by traditional roles and conventions of past generations of women.

Wanderlust is the story of Audrey Driscoll. Orphaned young, Audrey has grown up caring for her eccentric millionaire grandfather and her demanding younger sister, Annabelle, who assume she will always be there for them. Sheltered yet restless, responsible beyond her years yet hungering for experience, Audrey is hopelessly bound until she herself makes the daring decision to leave. As the 1930s unfold, alone, camera in hand, she will shock friends and outrage family as she plunges headlong into the wider world. Crossing the Atlantic aboard the luxurious Queen Mary, Audrey meets James and Violet Hawthorne, who will draw her into a sophisticated circle of artists and expatriates. And it is they who will introduce her to Charles Parker-Scott, in who Audrey will come to recognize a twin soul, a man propelled by relentless curiosity and driven by conflicting needs for intimacy and independence. Together they will spend an exquisite summer at Cap d'Antibes, then board the Orient Express on an adventure that will carry them to a remote outpost in China. But at the farthest reaches of this journey Aubrey must choose again. Japan has attacked China. Charles knows he must return to Europe at once. But Audrey becomes involved with a besieged orphanage and decides to remain in China without Charles, caring for the abandoned children until help arrives. In time Audrey will return to America with a daughter of her own. While she must come home to San Francisco to confront a world irrevocably changed by time, she finds she cannot stay. From prewar Germany to London during the Blitz, from a wrenching reunion with Charles to a war zone in North Africa, again and again she must choose between the dictates of her conscience and the yearnings of her heart. For Audrey Driscoll and the men and women whose lives touch hers, wanderlust is the inescapable element. Born at a time when women were expected to stay close to home and fulfill traditional roles, Audrey is compelled to follow the thread of events that will destroy the complacency of the past and shape the future. From Europe to China, from San Francisco to North Africa, she is irresistibly drawn into a man's world of conflict, discovery, and danger. In a vivid novel of breathtaking scope, Danielle Steel has once again surpassed herself in creating an unforgettable tale of men and women caught in the tides of personal drama and historic event. Wanderlust is Danielle Steel's finest journey. From the Paperback edition.

This book is the true story of my quest to live as a free spirit for a year of my life, mentally, physically and sexually. The year is 1975, I was 24 and I had abandoned a marriage and walked away from a secure job as a BBC make-up artist. Where in the modern world would I find the wide open horizons that I sought? How would I live? Would I share the adventure? The ocean, a boat and an open relationship provided my answers. Travelling with no fixed itinerary, no advance reservations, no return ticket and no fixed destination. We became true free spirits open to the dictionary's definition of adventure: 'one who lives on his wits. Risk. A remarkable happening.' My mood was at odds with the rest of the country. After the previous year's three day week, strikes and Harold Wilson's minority government, Britain was bracing itself for Denis Healey's tough new budget. I was about to sail away from all this, but what lay ahead could be much worse and certainly carried more risk. Restless, excited, optimistic and definitely naive I did it anyway. There is a phrase, "be careful what you wish for as it might come true"

Meet Sydney Taylor who is born with what I call Wanderlust, which is the impulse to wander or, as they say in modern times, a strong desire to travel and explore the world. From his birth in Greater London in a town called Leytonstone, England in 1887, follow his life as he runs away at a young age of fifteen to Canada. See and learn what he experiences as he starts his life-long work with the world's largest and oldest company, the Hudson Bay Company, which explored Canada and parts of the United States of America. See him as he travels across Canada, where he begins working in the wild, rough environment of the early 1900s trading with the Native Americans in outposts across northern Ontario. The story is based on the true-life journals of Sydney Taylor but the story is expounded on in such a fashionas to learn in detailabout the history and thegeography of everything he came into contact with. OfSydney Taylor, you can see from the beginning of the book that his life must have fashioned him into a person who would continually move to new places and,as such, hedeveloped a taste for travel or, as I call it, Wanderlust.

In the early 1900s, in a German village on the North Sea, a man named Wilhelm Schoon mistakenly thought he'd killed someone in a bar fight. Nervous, he slipped over the Dutch border and emigrated to Iowa, "where you can just spit on the ground and the corn grows three meters high!" Thirty years later his three granddaughters back in Germany inherited his land in America. One chose to emigrate; the other two stayed behind. Wanderlust chronicles the repercussions of their choices. The daughter of a midwife recalls her childhood during WWII as her home is attacked by fellow Germans. A nine-year-old boy watches his father learn the art of farming in "Amerika." An American woman follows her German husband back to Europe and for the first time views the U.S. through foreign eyes. A young man in East Germany devotes his life to the study of the violin, secretly hoping to gain a place in a touring orchestra so that he will have the chance to defect, but as the Berlin Wall falls he finds he must reevaluate his life and his ambitions. Wanderlust is both a memoir and a travelogue, a story of work, family, love, and immigration.
