    Giving to people in developing countries and promoting charities that do likewise has been a passion of mine for the past 10 years. So, when I picked up a copy of Finding Duong, Finding Myself, I thought I'd be able to read about Robyn's journey through her life, her heart and our world from the comfort of a spectator seat. I'd read many stories of people 'finding themselves' through the act of compassion towards our fellow human beings.Wow, was I in for a surprise!Robyn's captivating story drew me in to a place where I couldn't read on without reflection of my own journey, my own beliefs, my own life. Much, much more than a simple travel memoir, in Finding Duong, Finding Myself Robyn asks herself some very tough questions. Questions it's difficult to simply turn the page on without some self-reflection.In the book, Robyn seems satisfied to also leave some questions unanswered. Just as she easily explores the countries she travels, meeting strangers and connecting with their hearts, so does she explore her own inner landscape - meeting her own 'selves' - be they friendly or otherwise, getting to know who she is with every turn into a dusty village street and every turn of the page in this fascinating, heartwarming and oft times tragic book.I believe Robyn has written a one-off. I haven't picked up another book like it. Perhaps that makes it a marketing nightmare - trying to fit it into one genre. Is it a travel story - yes, a biography - certainly, a spiritual guide - for me, yes.I encourage you to take the leap, out of the spectator seat and into the game. Take the journey with Robyn in Finding Duong, Finding Myself. I'm sure you'll find it as rewarding an experience as I have.

    Once I started reading "Finding Dhong, Finding Myself" I couldn't put it down! I was compelled to keep reading, eager to find out the next exciting and challenging event or interaction that Robyn Ramsay so beautifully describes in her new book. In sharing her own inner and outer journeys while travelling through various countries, a new pathway of travel and inspiration opened up to me. But would I be as committed and courageous as Robyn has been? This is truly inspiring reading: spiritually, socially and in terms of travelling overseas. In particular the book describes Robyn's trip to Vietnam where she had decided to make a contribution to some of the poorer and more disadvantaged people. She was no longer a tourist. In each of the chapters of the book, Robyn also describes other travel experiences she has had that have impacted on her in some significant way - challenging her consciousness and making her question the impact of her presence and that of Westerners in general travelling in underdeveloped countries. All these experiences led her to fundraise an amount of money and then take that on her voyage to Vietnam where she goes about fulfilling her mission. This book is for anyone who wants to stop being a tourist and start travelling with an open mind to really 'seeing' the people and their lives in the countries we chose to travel to. It is also how can we contribute something to improve people's lives rather than importing our western culture through our ignorance of local situations. It is well-written, accessible and full of wonderful stories!

    This book is a must read for worldwide travellers...especially to developing countries like Vietnam and India. The descriptions of the places and the people brought back loads of memories for me. I also loved these countries and I could identify with the powerful and very personal emotions shared by the author. I read the book on a long haul plane flight from the states and finished it....I couldn't put it down. This story would make a great film.

    Such a moving story with a gobsmacking sub-plot of teaching the reader to intensify the experiences of our travels through assimilation rather than superficiality. Robyn teaches us a lot through her personal experiences.
