I’m writing this book for a number of reasons.
First, I feel an obligation to share when I learned. I knew when I started my trip that I was given an opportunity that very few people have. And so I feel a responsibility to share the stories of the amazing people I met along the way.
Second, sharing my story allows me to relive the journey. As I write, I revisit all these magical places again. And I have to say, it’s almost better this second time around since the experience isn’t immediate. I’m not worried about the dangers associated with travel. Instead I can savor the experience and begin to think about all I’ve seen on a much deeper level. My journey is brain food that will feed me for the rest of my life.
Third, I’m a story teller and this is my story. My first job was as a writer and now I’ve come back to it. I enjoy the writing process and I hope you enjoy what you will read.
