Ajanta Caves, India

The other day, someone said, “Remember that time when your bike crashed into a Buddhist temple and you disturbed the monks’ morning chant? Or that time when a Cambodian woman saved you from that terrible rainstorm?  Yeah, well you should write these stories down.”

Sharing stories, especially travel ones, is my favorite pastime.  I love being able to pass on a heartfelt exchange or a quirky moment.
