Our world is full of miracles. Spectacular mountain passes, energy-packed forests, lakes that glitter, wide valleys and colourful plants, fantastic beaches. We have seen a lot and been in awe.
Despite all the miracles, it’s the people who make our travels so memorable and profound.
They remind us that we can find friends in every corner of the planet, regardless of skin colour, status, religion or culture. Because truely, most of them just want the same as us. Yet, the fear of strangers is often the very thing that keeps us from having faith in the future.
If our fellow men could experience the encounters we have been granted, some would possibly throw their prejudice over board. That’s how the idea grew to introduce you to our friends around the globe.
I am very pleased to start my new people series with John. A retiree from the USA, whom we had been lucky to meet north of New York. Thank you John and Carol for your friendship.
