Whether travel stories spring from joy or sorrow, result in change or status quo, they always give vicarious pleasure ... Will had a good life in Australia, but something dislodged him from the office where he worked and sent him on his first experience living abroad.  We asked him why ... and hope listening like this evaporates borders.  Special thanks to the musician who provided our opening and closing, Dana Boulé.

I came back from each of my journeys a little different ... it never occurred to me that my new experiences were having an effect on me, and it was not till long afterwards that I saw how they had formed my character. In contact with all these strange people I lost the smoothness I had acquired when, leading the humdrum life ... I was one of the stones in a bag. I got back my jagged edges. I was at last myself.
— W. Somerset Maugham
