Travelling changes all of us. It expands our worldview and broadens our horizons. It forces us to face our fears and overcome them, whether it's a fear of jungle snakes, strange non-English-speaking foreigners, repelling down a mountain cliff, or riding a third-world bus. GOING PLACES tells the stories of how various young people have faced those fears and how their different journeys changed their lives. From a seemingly boring family beach vacation to a wild African adventure, kids describe in their own words what their journeys taught them - about themselves and their world.
