World Traveler Summary
Everything in Cal's life has come easily to him. An extremely handsome man in his early 30s, he has all the outward trappings of success: a good career, a beautiful wife and a young son who adores him. But on the morning of his son's third birthday, something snaps in Cal and he packs his bag and hits the road. Although plagued with guilt, he drives on in pursuit of something intangible just beyond the horizon. On the road Cal has a series of encounters with people who each bring to light aspects of Cal's true nature- things he'd rather not see -provoking a chain of painful self-realizations. When he encounters Dulcie, an emotionally fragile woman with a tragic secret, Cal sees it as an opportunity to do just "one good thing." What Cal doesn't realize until too late is that no one can really help Dulcie. This voyage of self-discovery ultimately leads Cal to the one person from his past that just might help him find his way back home, even if he takes the long road to get there.
