Travel back to the 80s and 90s, when picking up a letter at a post office was more important than picking up a phone. A close encounter with a ghost in Scotland and a gun in Mexico. A request to meet a fortune-teller in Varanasi, who correctly predicts the future. Entering Tibet the hard way, and meeting the Dalai Lama the easy way. Living in Japan for 13 years, and experiencing life as an ex-pat, and seeing Japan through the eyes of an ESL teacher. This is a collection of stories and travels, written with ESL students in mind, but for everyone to read.
Vicariously experience these and other misadventures when you travel to parts of Europe, Latin America, Southeast Asia, Hong Kong, China, and the Middle East. Each country in this collection is unique and compelling. Off the beaten path, many random encounters lead to unexpected journeys and a light-hearted search for love, adventure, and spiritual meaning.
Whether you're a nomad, an armchair traveler or maybe looking for a few laughs, this book is for you.
Delve into these countries, and perhaps find the inspiration to step into them one day on your own.
