As I travel around the globe, one of my primary goals is to gain a better understanding of the world and the people who inhabit it. Listening to stories from other people (especially travel-related stories) is one of the best ways to get to know someone and see the world from their perspective. You get a small glimpse into their life. You see how that story affects the storyteller in the way they tell it. You can feel their excitement, joy, sadness, fear, and regret. I believe we can all learn from these stories. It gives a different perspective on how everyone handles what life throws at them, good or bad.
So I’m going to make you a deal….if I meet you in a foreign land, I’ll buy you a drink if you’re willing to tell me a story.
The story can be true or made up on the spot. It can be anything. Just as long as I can write about it and share it here. I want to curate stories from all corners of the globe. And if it’s a long story…well, then I’ll just order us a 2nd round!
