Traveling has never been easier than in today's age. Anyone can board a plane and be on the other side of the world in 24 hours. Most of us have explored multiple cities and countries. Unfortunately, time and money are huge constraints to many of us and we too often leave places behind without really having gotten to know them. My dad has found a way to get the most out of his short business trips to foreign cities by focusing on getting to know the culture and history of a place in a nutshell. This collection of stories hopes to inspire, entertain and add a little more insight to our wonderful world.
