EVERY TRAVELER HAS their own personal stories about some extremely nice treatment they received in the most dire of circumstances. One that sticks out for me was when our campervan broke down in Sicily on the highway, by coincidence on a national holiday (they weren’t even answering their SOS emergency phones).
We had no idea where we were and dusk was setting in, and as we walked along the shoulder trying to find a telephone a taxi driver stopped and asked if we needed help. He ended up driving us to a phone, then to our campervan to wait for the tow truck. Although we insisted on giving him some money, he didn’t expect anything.
