    Great travel read! 30 wonderful but very different stories. Some funny, some inspirational, some sad. Only a couple less engaging but most of them were well written and very interesting! Will definitely read other volumes

    A lot of these felt like workshop submissions, with a few standout pieces like the Alaska story about Into the Wild tourism, the Thai islands people stories stuck between being water people and a new culture, and the last story about dogsledding. Best American Travel Writing series is a much stronger anthology if you like reading travel stories. With that being said, none were awful and it was easy to get through as most weren't very long.

    I have only 4 stories left to read in the book. Most of the stories are well-written and told from a female point of view.-complete with family and relationship problems. My least favourite one is the story of artists in France and my favourite one are the Afghanistan stories (perhaps because I'm an adrenalists and these stories are told from a warring vantage point) I have only 4 stories left to read in the book.

    As is often the case with collections, these varied wildly in quality. A handful were really good, another handful were solid, and a surprising number were self-indulgent, boring, and dabbling in vaguely racist stereotypes.

    So many great stories! The one about Afghan bicycle team really tugged my heart strings and the one from Vietnam was really humorous. The one from Finland was an important life lesson. 4,5 stars. I recommend!

    I enjoyed these heartfelt true stories from around the world, places most will never venture to in their lifetimes. Reading about the Grease Man in Sri Lanka and the truth to who might have been behind it was fascinating. The Balloons over Burma story is a reminder of what happens without OSHA ;) And the story about McCandless pilgrims was insightful. It was a real pleasure to read every story in this book.

    I enjoyed the stories I read in this book, but as often happens with me and short story collections, life gets in the way and I just don't make it to the end.
