Bob Parker explores the variety of cultures and mores that he has found during 30 years of travels. Rather than detailing his various activities on a given day, the author focuses instead on the one event that has enriched the experience of that particular day.
Parker's travels extend here over almost 30 years, reflecting his encounters with people from Nantucket to Norway, from Mexico to Ireland, as well as in Caracas, the home of his wife Margot. The early journeys are with his wife and their three children, but beginning with a visit to Greece and its islands, the remaining trips are by him and his wife alone.
Here are impressions of people like artists, writers, and musicians, as well as of the natural and architectural wonders of the world from Venezuela to Venice. Here, too, is a travel writer who captures the emotions of experiencing new lands and the histories that give them meaning.
