Over dinner we thought back about the people we have met and talked to while travelling. We have been shown many, many acts of kindness and friendship everywhere we have been – lifts in cars when we have been in extremis, a bed for the night, meals and drinks, smiles and a friendly chat, etc, etc. We cannot remember an unfriendly word or act, other than from some people cocooned in metal boxes travelling at high speed.
It restores your faith in human nature and the inherent goodness in people.
So a hearty thanks and big hugs to everyone we have met.
