With every anecdote and experience I found myself nodding my head in affirmation and thinking "Hey! I know how that feels, same thing happened to me too!".<br />Solo traveling can be daunting and is not everyone's cup of tea but it is still a very crucial adventure to grow as a person and anyone looking for some inspiration will find all the answers right here, in this captivatingly worded book.<br /><br />- Palak, Bald zu sein Reisende<br />"Palak Goyal"

Chapitre 1: - Une Pêche de Nuit - - Le bateau à vapeur arriva à Villeneuve une heure plus tôt que de coutume. Le vent d'ouest, qui avait tant effrayé nos dames sur le lac, nous avait rendu ce service. Villeneuve est située à l'extrémité orientale du lac Léman. Le Rhône, qui descend de la FURCA où il prend sa source, passe à une demi heure de chemin de Villeneuve, marque les limites du canton de Vaux, qui, s'avançant en pointe, s'étend cinq lieues au delà de cette petite ville, et le sépare du pays valaisan. Un célérifère, qui attend les passagers du bateau à vapeur, les conduit le même soir à Bex, où l'on couche ordinairement. L'heure d'avance que le vent nous avait fait gagner me permit de courir jusqu'à l'endroit où le Rhône se jette en se bifurquant, gris et sablonneux, dans le lac, pour y laisser son limon, et ressortir pur et azuré, à Genève, après l'avoir traversé dans toute sa longueur. Lorsque je revins à Villeneuve, la voiture était prête à partir; chacun avait pris sa place, et l'on m'avait gratifié, comme absent, de celle que l'on jugeait la plus mauvaise, et que j'eusse choisie, moi, comme la meilleure. On m'avait mis près du conducteur dans le cabriolet de devant, où rien ne devait me garantir du vent du soir, mais aussi où rien ne m'empêchait de voir le paysage. C'était un beau coup d'œil, à travers cet horizon bleuâtre des Alpes, que cette vallée qui s'ouvre sur le lac, dans une largeur de deux lieues, et qui va toujours se rétrécissant, à tel point qu'arrivée à Saint Maurice, une porte la ferme, tant elle est resserrée entre le Rhône et la montagne. A droite et à gauche du fleuve, et de demi lieue en demi lieue, de jolis villages vaudois et valaisans paraissaient et disparaissaient.................

Na Austrália, visitámos quatro estados e três das maiores e mais belas cidades do país. Surpreendemo-nos com a arquitetura. Cruzámos quatro fusos horários e tirámos fotos no trópico de Capricórnio. Sufocámos nas temperaturas extremas do deserto. Lutámos contra moscas teimosas e inoportunas. Sentimos a força das tempestades tropicais de verão. Encantámo-nos com a vida selvagem, os elegantes casuares e as emas, os cangurus e os koalas, os leões-marinhos e as focas neozelandesas, os enormes morcegos da fruta, e as barulhentas e omnipresentes caturras e catatuas. Abrimos caminho pelo ar denso, húmido e quente das florestas húmidas tropicais e dos mangais. Mergulhámos nos mares quentes da Grande Barreira de Coral e nas águas frias dos mares do sul. Subimos montanhas imponentes, refrescámo-nos em cascatas e dormimos sob as estrelas nas infinitas extensões planas do centro desértico.

<strong>“Non smetterò mai di viaggiare il mondo.</strong><br /><strong>E fra la gente, sentirmi a casa.</strong><br /><strong>Tutti dovremmo sentirci a casa sempre.</strong><br /><strong>Spogliarci dell’uniforme che indossiamo nel quotidiano e finalmente essere noi.</strong><br /><strong>Diversi l’uno dall’altro.</strong><br /><strong>È nell’abbraccio alla diversità che si consuma il futuro prossimo del mondo.”</strong><br /> <br /><strong>Andrea Caschetto</strong> ha inaugurato la categoria dei viaggi necessari. Il suo è un turismo dell’anima, dove i luoghi sono le persone e le persone sono i luoghi. Andrea è un viaggiatore lento, perché serve tempo per ascoltare davvero le vite degli altri, per entrare in punta di piedi nelle esistenze, laddove la porta viene aperta, e con garbo accarezzarle e accudirle. E non crediate che questo tempo sia perso: prima o poi ritorna, in forme e sembianze mai uguali, ed è linfa per il mondo.<br />Questo viaggio nasce da varie necessità, che nell’ordine sono: esaudire il desiderio di una ragazza molto amata che ama l’Argentina ma non può andarci; imparare che la disabilità ha bisogno di manutenzione e non di cure, perché non è una malattia; e ancora, raccontare la straordinaria meraviglia della diversità, dando voce agli Invisibili.<br />E allora via, lungo le strade dell’Argentina. Unica compagna, una sedia a rotelle, metafora del vivere disabile. Da usare per sedersi e per far sedere, per confidarsi e far confidare. Per raccontare storie e invitare a raccontarle.<br />A proposito, la sedia ha un nome. Si chiama Azzurra, come la ragazza amata che ama l’Argentina e finalmente, con Andrea, ci è andata. Perché la realtà ha la forma che uno vuole darle. E i sogni contano.

Customer Reviews
In HOW WE SEE YOU, teacher and translator Álvaro Ramírez has collected ten biographical accounts of the lives of British people in Spain, from the late fifties until the present day, written by himself and others, with significant input from the subjects themselves. <br /><br />In this diverse collection we see the trials and adventures of individuals and couples through mostly sympathetic Spanish eyes, from Walter’s enigmatic sojourn in mid-century Castile to Alan’s reflective tale of a long life in voluntary exile. Here we see Brits at work and play, prospering or enduring, from a point of view rarely seen in print before.<br />

<b>James M. McPherson, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of <i>Battle Cry of Freedom</i>, and arguably the finest Civil War historian in the world, walks us through the site of the bloodiest and perhaps most consequential battle ever fought by Americans: the Battle of Gettysburg.</b><br /><br /> The events that occurred at Gettysburg are etched into our collective memory, as they served to change the course of the Civil War and with it the course of history. More than any other place in the United States, Gettysburg is indeed hallowed ground. It’s no surprise that it is one of the nation’s most visited sites (nearly two million annual visitors), attracting tourists, military buffs, and students of American history. <br /><br /> McPherson, who has led countless tours of Gettysburg over the years, makes stops at Seminary Ridge, the Peach Orchard, Cemetery Hill, and Little Round Top, among other key locations. He reflects on the meaning of the battle, describes the events of those terrible three days in July 1863, and places the struggle in the greater context of American and world history. Along the way, he intersperses stories of his own encounters with the place over several decades, as well as debunking several popular myths about the battle itself.<br /><br /> What brought those 165,000 soldiers—75,000 Confederate, 90,000 Union—to Gettysburg? Why did they lock themselves in such a death grip across these once bucolic fields until 11,000 of them were killed or mortally wounded, another 29,000 were wounded and survived, and about 10,000 were “missing”—mostly captured? What was accomplished by all of this carnage? Join James M. McPherson on a walk across this hallowed ground as he be encompasses the depth of meaning and historical impact of a place that helped define the nation’s character.<br /><br />“[I]n a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our power to add or detract.”<br /> —President Abraham Lincoln

In 2003, software engineer David Miller left his job, family, and friends to fulfill a dream and hike the Appalachian Trail. <em>AWOL on the Appalachian Trail</em> is Miller's account of this thru-hike along the entire 2,172 miles from Georgia to Maine. On page after page, readers are treated to rich descriptions of the valleys and mountains, the isolation and reverie, the inspiration that fueled his quest, and the life-changing moments that can only be experienced when dreams are pursued. While this book abounds with introspection and perseverance, it also provides useful passages about safety and proper gear, with a view into a professional hiker's preparations and tenacity. This is not merely a travel guide, but a beautifully written and highly personal view into one man's adventure and what it means to make a lifelong vision come true.

<p>Janette Catherine Stone (Byron) has always held a rebellious perspective on life. When she was a college student, she often skipped class choosing instead to show American servicemen on R&R from Vietnam around her childhood home of Sydney, Australia. Stone intuitively understood that these soldiers needed someone to talk to and someone to write to once they went back to their lives in a war they didn’t always fully comprehend.</p><br /><br /><p>This emphasis on human connection forms the basis for many of the stories included in Stone’s fascinating new collection. Many of the vignettes are about the people she has met on her various travels. Some honor the soldiers she met in Sydney so many years ago. Stone offers a tribute to their legacy while describing the differences they made in her own life. </p><br /><br /><p>From personal anecdotes about the challenges of motherhood (although Stone wouldn’t have it any other way) to the extraordinary survival of a remarkable Canadian missionary in China to the grief that comes with the death of a beloved dog to insightful travel essays about her adventures in Spain and Brazil, Stone’s stories cover a wide range of the human experience. She perfectly captures the heart and spirit of both the places she visits and the ones she calls home. </p>
