Full Circle: Tales of Travel and Self-Discovery from Around the World

“She had traveled around the world to find a home, and it took a full circling of the globe to realize that she always had one.” Traveling from the quintessential Parisian cafe to a tango club in Buenos Aires where tourists are typically persona non grata, through the maddening situation of feeling “lost in everything” on the streets of Seoul, the stories in this collection all touch on one trait that many of us share when we travel — self-discovery. No matter the country, culture, or language, self-discovery is what all of the characters in these stories experience, but more importantly, they develop realizations about themselves they never would have were it not for travel.

Available on Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble
