The Brian Lehrer Show is not live today, so we won't be taking any calls. As always, you can join the conversation online through our comments section (links below), on Facebook, or on Twitter through @BrianLehrer. We'll be back live on Monday!
It’s not a vacation unless...? What makes traveling a vacation, for you? What do you seek when you travel? Author Cheryl Strayed shares her story of hiking alone as her life was falling apart, and we ask for your modern-day pilgrimage stories. Plus: How your race affects your travel experience, stories of vacations gone horribly wrong and advice on how to travel ethically.
