A yearning for romance lies in us all as we travel, and this collection of personal stories of love on the road explores those secret places where passion resides. These tales illuminate the tender, alarming, funny, and frightening forms that love in a foreign place can take, from an account of how travel kept the spark in a 50-year marriage to one woman's crisis of conscience when attracted to a Tahitian guide. Together they reveal that whether we seek another, a new understanding with a partner, or ourselves, travel is often the ultimate romance.
