Traveling Lite Volume 1, is the first in a series of stories from around the world. It takes you through winding roads and moving trains, from the wine country in Italy to the streets of Argentina, it focuses your attention to life’s psychological journey, and the path to easing the burden we bear through introspection and a shift of perspective. With a range of topics from Guyanese cultural migration to gender politics, and dancing Argentine tango, the author takes the everyday occurrences in life and looks at them through a set of filters that are keenly attuned to the minute details that escape the average eye. It is a compilation of travel insights that combine history, humour, and satire to create a delightful blend of narratives that are entertaining, informative, and thought-provoking.
