Exploring the global dictionary, from common languages to obscure dialects,The Happiness Passporttakes the reader on a joyful journey around the world seeking out the secrets of wellbeing.

The wonderfully evocative words in this collection resonate with universal emotions: the deep longing for home conjured up by the Welsh wordhiraeth,or the transportive ability of good storytelling captured in the Urdugoya. Yet at the same time each is deeply ingrained in its place of origin: long, dark Danish days encourage the warmth and cosiness ofhygge,while the satisfied chatter after a sun-soaked meal -sombremesa- resonates uniquely with Spanish hospitality.

A must-read for all those seeking a more balanced life, this beautiful guide features original illustrations that conjure up each elusive expression.
