Chance Encounters

Chance Encounters

Freelance travel journalist, editor, and producer, Janna Graber, has done a terrific job with this book! Some of you may remember my interview with her over at Christina Hamlett’s blog, You Read It Here First. As someone who also loves to travel, but not nearly as much as Janna and her journalist friends, I became intrigued with the life and experiences of people who travel this globe for a living. I had long suspected that the memories would be as much about the people met along the way, as the incredible vistas and locales. Turns out, I was right.

Chance Encounters is a compilation of wonderful stories by travel writers for people who love to travel, or wish they could! Each personal essay featured is a glimpse into another life, another time, another place, and reminds us that we are connected in ways we often don’t initially recognize. More than stories about the places travelers visit, Chance Encounters focuses on the people who make the experiences richer. Anyone who has ever gone someplace new can relate to these tales of adventure, serendipity, and chance. This is a book worth reading and keeping. Well done, Janna and friends!
