Item description for The Gift of Travel: Inspiring Stories from Around the World (Travelers' Tales) by Larry Habegger...

The Gift of Travel features sublime stories about the transformative power of travel. Bringing together over two dozen of the most dazzling and moving stories from the award-winning Travelers' Tales series, this collection is based on the premise that traveling can help people break through the crust of old experience and reawaken to the joys, mysteries, and miracles of everyday life. The stories speak directly to the reader's pilgrim nature and feature the simple but profound lessons that travelers have learned in their encounters abroad.

From an unforgettable language teacher in Bangkok to the tambourine men of Recife, from a Barcelona train station to a Baja desert, from a tomato tossing festival in Spain to a tango in the "Moon Country" of remotest India, an array of intrepid globe-trotters offer vivid accounts of their most unforgettable world travel experiences. This edition includes a new preface.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gift of Travel: Inspiring Stories from Around the World (Travelers' Tales)?

Gift ?  Jul 27, 2005
True to its title, the book talks of travel as a gift, as a present. It consists of 31 short stories about travel set in different parts of the world - Spain, Mexico, India, France, Tibet, USA............

The stories are not exceptional and cannot replicate the gift / joy of actual travel as any intrepid traveller will tell you. Some of the stories seem contrived like the one set in Canary Islands ("Letting Life Happen"). There are others which evoke and want to make us travel there (e.g. the story set in Tibet, "A Tibetan picnic").

All in all, can be avoided. Better travel literature exists.
