The Guidebook Experiment

The Guidebook Experiment is a call-to-action for all of us to conduct our own guidebook experiments, to disconnect from the ceaseless barrage of information in modern life and explore an unknown neighborhood or unfamiliar country and discover the joy of travel on our own.

"Bockino empowers the reader to go skinny dipping in the unknown—I dare you to read it and stay put." —Peter Wortsman, author of Ghost Dance in Berlin
