One story i will always remember. This one man used his vacation time and hung around the airport during the Christmas holiday season looking to help whomever he can. People rushing all about the place, kids crying and adults frustrated. One woman ran out of diapers while waiting for her plane this man was prepared with diapers, tissues and even candy and some wrapped gifts for children. To make the time go easier he told holiday stories to the children and even started caroling. Another man ask ...more

This particular book in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series is one of the better ones in my opinion. But maybe that's the wanderlust in me speaking. All I know is, I enjoyed a good portion of the stories in this book for the Traveler's Soul.

The Chicken Soup for the Soul series is known for short, inspiring stories. This one is no different, although it mostly goes over travel. But not travel in the usual sense of the word. We have a trip to the moon included in this book in addition to trips ou

Kalau mengharapkan ini adalah semacam buku yang akan mengurai keindahan atau keunikan sebuah tempat, dan bagaimana sang traveler mengisi jiwanya, mungkin akan kuciwa. Karena buku ini lebih banyak menuturkan tentang persentuhan manusia dengan manusia. Lumayan sih.

Chicken Soup for the Traveler's Soul is an eclectic, often delightful, collection of short stories with a common thread of travel. The travel element is sometimes thin, and the stories sometimes venture a bit far into philosophy, theology, or ill-considered opinion, but it was still an interesting read. I enjoyed the occasional glimpses into the observations and thoughts of the travelers. I also found several stories that I will someday use in class or in a talk at church (the story of Josef and ...more

I started reading this book to pass time at work. I remember when Chicken Soup books were all the rage and I love to travel, so it seemed like a good fit.

There were a handful of truly remarkable, heartwarming and/or humorous stories, but I found most of it too be a bit too fluffy for my taste. Almost every other sentence seemed to be "and then she hugged me for no reason" or "my eyes began to well up with tears." And I have to ask myself where this magical hugging and crying world is, because I

This is, as usual in this series, a very good book. This book tells of compassion, healing, and daring while on trips. I loved this book. If you're a traveler, this book will resonate with you and you'll probably love it too.

Good quotes and heart-warming stories. I read it to inspire my blogging, and it was recommended by a friend who heard it recommended at a travel talk.
Indra Fajriansyah
Buku ini menceritakan bahwa travelling sama sekali bukan sekedar jalan-jalan, menghabiskan uang, buang-buang waktu, dan segala pikiran negatif lainnya. Buku ini menceritakan bahwa travelling lebih dari semua itu. Travelling dapat membawa kita menemukan diri kita yang sebenarnya, bertemu orang-orang yang tidak kita duga, membawa kita memahami arti dari kebersamaan, saling memahami, saling berbagi, dan saling mencintai.
Lebih dari itu buku ini dapat membuka pikiran dan wawasan kita bahwa travelling

i found myself in work one day with no book to read during my lunch hour so i borrowed this from the staff room & it proved to be a great choice..its my first 'chicken soup' book & i really liked the format - a collection of short, easy to read & heart warming stories with a common theme of travel..its a handy book to have in your bag when you find yourself having 5 minutes to spare as each story is just a few pages long and then youre on to the next journey..

I liked this book, but it wasn't as good as the others. I think the topic was too narrow. The chapters had different headings, but quite a few of the stories sounded like they were about the same thing.

I found this book in lending library at a vacation resort. Perfect time to read it. Very inspirational stories that made me look at the possibilities of very different kinds of travel.

One of the authors(I can't decipher the signature on my signed copy) came on the plane and gave all the passengers and crew a copy. It was dated 2002. Hope to read it this year.:)

A lot of these made me laugh. Crazy stuff happens on the road. I remembered quite a few from reading it when it came out. Worth keeping around for a quick story.

Nice light read, especially for a short trip. I teared up at a few of the stories. Perfect read for times when you know you'll be getting interrupted.

This was a different slant for me in terms of travel writing. I love the shortness of the stories and the variety of writers and tales.

Will anyone be as kind to tell me if this is a good book to buy? I love to travel, and it sounds interesting.

This book is fine if you're looking for very light reading without much substance.

Chicken Soup. As good as it has always been. And pricey. But it's worth it.
