Lonely Planet The Kindness of Strangers (Lonely Planet Travel Literature) Kindle Edition
Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher*
A timely collection of 26 inspiring tales, The Kindness of Strangers explores the unexpected human connections that so often transfigure and transform the experience of travel, and celebrates the gift of kindness around the world. Featuring stories by Jan Morris, Tim Cahill, Simon Winchester and Dave Eggers.
I greatly appreciate the theme of this book that gathers stories of kindness received when it was most needed and perhaps least expected. I am sure they will inspire everyone who reads them, encouraging each of us to take whatever opportunities arise to be kind to others in turn. - HIS HOLINESS THE DALAI LAMA
The Kindness of Strangers is a wonderful companion for travel. It enlarges us, reminds us that serendipity is one of the ultimate joys of life's constant journey. - AMY TAN
A wonderful idea beautifully realized. I enjoyed it immensely.- BILL BRYSON

Spend a few days with this book and you will have travelled the globe, meeting some of the nicest and yet most diabolical people.
From lending a helping hand to saving their life these stories show real people at the mercy of complete strangers.
I enjoyed the book very much and purchased a hard copy of it to pass along - perhaps to a stranger someday.
