Win a copy of “The Same Sky,” a book about a young woman’s journey through Southeast Asia in search of inner peace. 

The Same Sky

In The Same Sky – A Traveler’s Quest for Redemption and Peace, Vancouver-native Debbie Yee Lan Wong recounts her three-month trek through Tibet, Laos and Cambodia, following a painful breakup.

“The memoir is about how after my relationship crumbled and I was at the lowest point of my life. I left for Asia with just a journal, camera and clothes.” she recalls. “The locals I met shared stories of love, grief and the struggle for peace in their countries. Those stories and small acts of love helped me heal and find the courage to believe in myself again.”

In addition to Debbie’s personal story, The Same Sky contains in-depth descriptions of Buddhist temples, regional cuisine, and outdoor markets. It might appeal to anyone with an interest in Southeast Asia and solo travelers.
