Often the most carefree adventures carry the most risk, because travelling carelessly is most likely to unwittingly impact others. With great compassion, Dr. Anu Taranath's book Beyond Guilt Trips: Mindful Travel in an Unequal World invites us to reconsider our travel through the lens of identity, race, difference and social justice.
