The Best Women's Travel Writing: True Stories from Around the World Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These tales are thematically eclectic and cover spiritual growth, hilarity and misadventure, romance, solo journeys, service to humanity, family travel, and exotic cuisine, all told from a woman's perspective.

Synopsis:

These inspiring, uplifting tales are told by women who traveled to the ends of the earth to discover new places, people, and, ultimately, facets of themselves. The common threads connecting the stories are a womans fresh perspective, lively storytelling, and a compelling narrative that makes the reader laugh, cry, and wish she were there. The voices are global and themes are eclectic, with stories that encompass the full spectrum of travel adventure. Pieces in the 2006 collection include discovering Russia at 3,000 feet, learning to save face and start smoking in Italy, learning to dance the tango in Argentina, and journeying from Senegal to Mali on a horse.
