Some of the best stories often come from experiences had while traveling — whether you’re visiting a familiar destination or taking the road less traveled. The adventure and process of getting from one place to another seems to encourage the storyteller in all of us. I travel by train quite frequently and I’m pretty sure I could fill a whole book with observations of the random assortment of people who wind up sitting next to me. The wide variety of people and places encountered on the road can definitely be inspiring.
