The Willing Road shows you

the horrors and the beauties of travel as told by me, Tuliyani,

a traveler who hit the road so that life wouldn't escape me.  

Through humorous anecdotes, thoughtful journal entries, and travel tips,

I hope to open up a whole new world to you and

provide you the courage to

take that first step out the door.
