Why did you read it? Why did you finish it? Who would you recommend it to?:
I have tried to read this book several times and just couldn't get in to it. But about a month ago I pulled this of the bookshelf again and am in LOVE with this story. In her 50s the author takes a leave of absence from her journalism career to regain her sense of adventure... By traveling the world solo. Oh, what heartfelt, beautiful bits of herself she uncovers and honestly shares with lucky readers -- all while soaking in the culture and surroundings of faraway places.
