“Travel is about seeing the world with new eyes, so from time to time it’s worth taking a break from Theroux, Bryson, Morris. Iyer and Co. to discover fresh voices, and fresh perspectives. With stories ranging from the poignant to the hilarious, this collection of pieces by the Bay Area Travel Writers will give you a fresh set of eyes with which to see the world.”

—John Flinn

“Each entry in Trvel Stories from Around the Globe zooms in on an unpredictable experience—a journey within a journey—that reveals more about a place than you’d ever learn from a guidebook. To read them is to be transported into other travelers’ minds and shoes on journeys defined by open-mindedness and courage, curiosity and doubt. It will make you yearn to pack your bags and collect some travel stories of your own.”
