    Critic Reviews

    "Seasoned performers spurred to do their best by the combination of good writing and live audiences are irresistible....The humorous pieces are particularly enjoyable because of the palpable synergy between narrator and laughing audience. But all are enjoyable and satisfying." (AudioFile)

    not so much about travel

    These stories were not the light hearted or adventurous tales I was looking for but rather situations of the human experience which involved not being in ones home. Sad, heartbreaking, horrific, and at times slightly touching on the adventure and wonder of travel. If you are looking for stories to inspire your next adventure of travelers spirit, these stories are not for you.
