The Yellow Envelope: One Gift, Three Rules, and a Life-Changing Journey Around the World by Kim Dinan

Into the Wild

Read The Yellow Envelope: One Gift, Three Rules, and a Life-Changing Journey Around the World Online Free - After Kim and her husband decide to quit their jobs to travel around the world, they’re given a yellow envelope containing a check and instructions to give the money away. The only three rules for the envelope: Don’t overthink it; share your experiences; don’t feel pressured to give it all away.

Through Ecuador, Peru, Nepal, and beyond, Kim and Brian face obstacles, including major challenges to their relationship. As she distributes the gift to people she encounters along the way she learns that money does not have a thing to do with the capacity to give, but that giving—of ourselves—is transformational.

I love a good travel story. I believe I have this from my grandmother, who also loves to live vicariously through other travellers’ stories. So when I came across The Yellow Envelope, I knew I had to request it. The story takes us through South America, India, Indonesia, and Vietnam – but there’s...

Ugh. I expected so much more from this book. Dinan tells how she and her husband quit their jobs and left to travel the world. Some friends of theirs give them money to share with whomever they want while on their journey. Sounds intriguing, right?    Unfortunately, there is so much wrong with this...

You read books you may like them. But there are very few books with which you can actually connect. The Yellow Envelope by Kim Dinan is one such book. Thanks to the publishers and NetGallery for providing me the ARC of this lovely book which I could relate with. It was my first time reading a tra...
