Highlights include Neufeld and traveling companion Sari Wilson on a volunteer expedition to an organic farm in Malaysia, their stint as extras in a Chinese-language Singaporean soap opera, a train trip through war-torn Serbia, and a near-disastrous cave adventure in Thailand.

With gentle humor and a keen eye for the revelatory detail, Neufeld explores religion and spirituality, politics and personalities, and the mysteries of everyday life. His stories reflect the backpackers conflicted feelings: a yearning for adventure mixed with homesickness and a sense of disconnection, trapped in a reality constantly in flux. In the collections title story, Neufeld illustrates how the tensions and fears involved in travel through a strange country are dispelled by a Thai monks blessing. In On a Mission, Neufeld contrasts the viewpoints of American Baptist missionaries in northern Thailand with the traditions of a Buddhist festival.

And in Cremations, Cubicles & Cant, Neufeld juxtaposes his grandmothers Jewish funeral with a Hindu cremation ceremony he witnessed on Bali.
