Look at the latest independent travel magazines and you will see an emerging theme. Editors are suddenly drawing inspiration from Flâneurism, a 19th-century literary movement that promotes walking without destination. 

Publications such as Flaneur and DSCVR hope to encourage readers to discover the unexpected when travelling, through interviews, photo essays, daily tasks and city experiements.
