“What inspired me to leave the job in the first place was watching the movie ‘The Motorcycle Diaries,’ which is a romanticized version of Che’s [Guevara] trip across South America, and relied on kindness,” Logothetis, told the New York Post.
If you are looking to be inspired to get out and see the world, “The Kindness Diaries” on Netflix might just get you off the couch.
“The 13-episode series follows [Logothetis] on the months-long trip, which began in late summer 2013 and finished in early 2014, hitting 20 countries — from the U.S. to Spain, Turkey, India, Thailand, Vietnam and Canada,” says News.com.au.
He travels with no money and, instead, relies on the generosity of people he meets along the way.
“For this trip, he also added a pay-it-forward element — rewarding the random acts of kindness he received with his own charitable gestures, like paying (out of his own pocket) for plane tickets for a couple to attend their son’s wedding abroad or rebuilding the home of an HIV-positive mother,” notes New.com.au.
