A NEW collection of travel writing that includes 4 profiles I wrote of regular Frenchmen (and women) making a difference in this world on the 90th anniversary of WW I.
From the outlandish and unimaginable to the routine and universal, world travelers get thrust (or thrust themselves) into just about every situation you could possibly think of. With “From The Grand Canyon To The Great Wall: Travelers´ Best, Worst And Most Ridiculous Stories From The Road,” author and editor David Slenk has collected 67 of those creative, unique, interesting, touching, disastrous moments – in short, the best stories our travels have provided us. Stories from 54 different authors that take place in 45 different countries from all around the world.
Travel is a very powerful thing – whether your travel experience is full of one-week vacations, year-long globetrotting jaunts, missionary work or military deployment, travel affects everyone in both positive and negative ways. It shapes who we are and how we see the world. It exposes us to different cultures and new sights, and helps us connect with people we would never otherwise meet. It also brings with it scores of incredible nights, interesting conversations, brutal mistakes, and maybe even a handful of life-long friends.
So, are you a 100% self-confessed world traveler seeking inspiration for your next trip? Want to see how your worst mistake ranks with some of our most epic disasters? Or maybe you´re hoping to understand a bit of the life of a globe-trotter? Looking for inspiration for a trip of your own – or looking forward to wincing at our mistakes and self-inflicted problems, totally satisfied living with a/c, hot water and no language barriers to trip you up?
Or maybe you just want to read a bunch of well-crafted, quick-hitting, entertaining stories from around the world?
Grand To Great brings our huge, wild world home with an outstanding collection of stories, experiences, and thoughts from around the globe. Stories that will make you laugh, cry, and think. Experiences that will inspire you to get up and create your own story – either right here at home or out in the farthest reaches of our world.
So join David and authors from the USA, The Netherlands, Japan, Argentina, England and so many more countries on their never-ending trip around the globe – for better or worse, one amazing adventure after another.
