A beautiful memoir about taking a leap of faith, travelling the world and spreading kindness.
Kim and her husband quit their jobs and embark on a journey around the world. Their friends give them a yellow envelope that contains a thousand dollars with three simple instructions:
1. Don’t overthink it.
2. Share your experiences.
3. Don’t feel pressured to give it all away.
They travel through Nepal, Ecuador, Peru and beyond and their relationship is challenged and tested.
I loved their travel experiences and this memoir is testimony that life is worth living and memories are made of both good and bad times.
I have read Travelogues before and so I had high expectations as I started reading this book. I was keen on descriptions of the places they visited and Kim did deliver on this.
The second thing I was keen on, was their opinion of the places they visited with focus on the other places they’d been. I wanted to know whether they judged each place based on the places they had been, and aside from leaving Portland behind them, they did not do this. It was refreshing to have them see each place as a new beginning (exhaustion aside).
Kim’s writing is personal and makes it easy for the reader to accompany her on their journey, and when they pass on what they were given to share, it opens up a new perspective of life to them.
This is a must-read for anyone about to travel the world or a few places.
