Through coincidence on a global scale, a traveller from Europe and a teacher from Asia met within the threads of the World Wide Web. A single photo serves as an intersection point from which they share their diverse journeys that include joys, longings, and life lessons. As the dialog unfolds across continents, cultures, media, and time, Smitha Murthy and Dorothee Lang discover that though they are worlds apart geographically, they are merely a few words apart relationally. Their mutual discovery is captured in this collection of letters, essays, stories, poems, and photographs that reach from China and India to Germany and the Mediterranean Sea. Rounded up with practical advice for travelling and teaching in Asia, WOR(L)DS APART is both an inspiring travel read and the story of a friendship across cultures and borders.
