Boarding Passes to Faraway Places

This entertaining and engaging collection of travelogues offers road warriors and arm chair travelers alike stories from distant, isolated locales in a loop encircling the world. Sibilla describes his chance meeting with the President of Guatemala who choppered into a jungle LZ next to his mules, the surreal morning he awoke in Rangoon on his birthday, living in a Tibetan Buddhist Monastery in Uttar Pradesh, India, sleeping among the moai of Rapa Nui (Easter Island), and many other stories of relentless adventuring. From the Indian subcontinent to the Middle East, from Africa to Central America and finally across the vast Pacific Ocean, this collection of stories illustrates that, as Robert Louis Stevenson suggested, the great affair of travel is to move. With an acute eye for detail and an irrepressible sense of wonderment, the narratives here reflect the thrill that comes from arriving at a destination without a plan, from wandering at the suggestion of strangers and the feeling of exuberance you experience when you let go and allow the path to choose you.
