“SOBER TRAVEL” — For many parts of the world, July and August are the main traveling months. But people also travel for business, to visit family or friends, to do a city trip, for religious reasons, and much more. In this special edition, members share how they stay sober and joyful while traveling. We are also very happy to offer you a couple of articles from fellows in Japan. Their stories might attract you to travel to the Land of the Rising Sun, in sobriety and joy.
