Whether travel stories spring from joy or sorrow, result in change or status quo, they're bridges between our separate selves ... Johannes is a social worker in Vienna serving primarily Afghan boys caught up in Europe's migrant crisis.  We asked where else he's traveled ... and hope listening like this evaporates borders.  Special thanks to the musician, Dana Boulé.

When strangers on journeys and people far removed from their friends and companions enter a well-known place and famous site, it is their habit to leave behind a record of their presence in order to seek blessing in the prayers of other strangers, travelers, and people bereft of their kith and kin. I want to join in, so get me a pot of ink.
