Overview

All ten short stories in this collection demonstrate how Travel can be a catalyst for self-discovery. Each one of protagonists in these stories experiences a life-changing epiphany while visiting a place away from home. Some become aware of the social injustices that are hidden in their own country but are revealed in foreign places, some become aware of certain freedoms and possibilities that are not permitted on their own native ground. Some people travel to a place they once called or still call "home" only to discover that "home" is no longer there. In any case, these well-crafted narrative gems subtly and elegantly proclaim that Travel Can be Broadening, that all journeys are spiritual journeys.
