In Search of Understanding
Travel is an opportunity, whether you have a fixed schedule or you are going with the free fall. But it is the bohemian spirit who craves the plunge. They seek it out, taking giant dives into the unknown that are fraught with risk. It’s an insatiable craving, too restless and persistent to ignore.
This book takes you on a unique journey to four continents of the globe with a woman travelling, for the most part, on her own. She shares this experience through the fast moving lens of critical inquiry and reflection. There are no fixed schedules because the free fall invites something better.
The exploration of historical events, the antecedents that shape diverse cultures, the discovery of world secrets, and the hidden nuances that contribute to the human condition, fuels a new and invigorating philosophical perspective. All is surprise. Nothing is ever as it seems.
