We all have incredible stories to share about our time on the road. I've decided to start collecting those stories in one place. Each week, I'll choose a favorite to share in the Compassionate Travelers Facebook group, on Instagram and on Twitter to spur deeper conversation. So after you share below, keep an eye out everywhere :-) your story just might be picked.

Here's the prompt: Tell the story of a stranger you met while traveling who you'll never forget. Who is that person, and why will you remember them? Most importantly, how have you changed as a result?

Your story doesn't have to be long; just a couple sentences is fine. I'm looking forward to reading it.
