Reflections: Travel Writers Tell Their Personal Stories


The stories in this section are not intended to provide information about travel destinations. They're primarily about the travelers themselves.

All travel stories tell us something about the teller, but in these pieces, the authors take the insights gained from travel and reflect on what they've learned about themselves -- hence the name.

These stories show the ways in which travel can change us. As GoNOMAD Writer Sony Stark has observed, "Nobody warns you that when you travel, your mind stretches and never returns to its original size."
