It’s not just the destination. It’s the journey we take to get there. Chicken Soup for the Traveler’s Soul: Stories of Adventure, Inspiration, and Insight to Celebrate the Spirit of Travel is a collection of lively road stories written by travelers for travelers.
Narrated with unflappable wonderment by Gwen Hughes, these personal wanderlust tales are a celebration of adventure and the tolerant passenger’s enthusiastic embrace of the unfamiliar.
This collection acts as a contemplative consideration of the common traits all people share, for often, the farther from home we go, the closer the connection between humans can be.
Whether your idea of travel at its finest is trekking through Europe with a backpack, a map and a foreign-language dictionary; road-tripping across America in a fully loaded RV; or cruising the Caribbean aboard a luxury liner, Chicken Soup for the Traveler’s Soul celebrates the people you’ll meet, the lands you’ll discover and the lessons you’ll learn.
Like traveling itself, the stories in this book will take you on a journey of adventure, insight, and discovery. Through the real-life experiences of others, you’ll see that regardless of the destination, it is the journey that provides the fondest memories. You’ll be inspired by these treasured tales of fellow travelers who formed lasting friendships, fell in love, challenged themselves, and cherished the hospitality of others. These stories show that when traveling - as in life - sometimes it’s the unplanned adventures that provide us with the most opportunities for growth; that a twist in the road or a change in our itinerary teaches us not to fear the unknown, but to welcome and savor its surprises. With chapters including Living Your Dream, Getting There, Our Common Bond, Making a Difference, On Healing, On Love, A Matter of Perspective, The Kindness of Strangers, and Wisdom Along the Way, this book will guide you to where you want to go and celebrate the places you’ve already been.
Chicken Soup for the Traveler’s Soul will rekindle the spirit of every traveler, offer a deeper connection to people across the globe and provide you with a richer appreciation of the journey.

I tried to see it through but tbh was pretty tedious. Wanted a book about travel and experiences of the traveler and got a bed time book for late middle aged, middle class grans (who will probably love it)
