Take Me with You : A Round-the-World Journey to Invite a Stranger Home Paperback
by Brad Newsham
'Someday, when I am rich, I am going to invite someone from my travels to visit me in America.' Brad Newsham was a twenty-two-year-old travelling through Afghanistan when he wrote this in his journal.
Fourteen years later, he's a Yellow Taxi driver working in San Francisco.
He's not rich, but he has never forgotten his vow. Take Me With You is the compelling account of his journey through the Philippines, India, Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and South Africa as he searches for the right person - someone who couldn't afford to leave their own country, let alone holiday in the West. Newsham's story will change the way you think about your life and the lives of those you meet when you travel.

Review by AnglersRest
A fascinating account of a man following his dream, by devising a plan and giving someone else the chance to experience something remarkable. A story of developing friendships and trust.I especially enjoyed the time he spent in Kenya, as this is where we honeymooned and it reminded me of a wonderfully special time.Read - April 2006
