About this author


I’m a big fan of Kate Thorman’s and Nora Chovanec’s show The Innocents Abroad. They travel. They eat. Then they travel and eat some more. What’s not to love?


In their latest episode, they visit San Francisco’s State Bird Provisions, which, as luck and hard work would have it, just won the 2013 James Beard Aware for Best New Restaurant. Check it out!


And happy Monday.

More of Rachel's books…
“What happens when we lose the things that anchor us? What if, instead of grasping at something to hold on to, we pull up our roots and walk away? Instead of trying to find the way back, we walk deeper and deeper into the woods, willing ourselves to get lost. In this place where nothing is recognizable. not the people or the language or the food, we are truly on our own. Eventually, we find ourselves unencumbered by the past or the future. Here is a fleeting glimpse of our truest self, our self in the present moment.”
Rachel Friedman, The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure

“Heed this warning: four and a half hours in Surfers Paradise is four hours too long.”
Rachel Friedman, The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure

“I imagine the people whose lives are most intertwined with mine, and I realize life has gone on without me. The planet has not imploded because I, the girl who has always done what is expected of her, decided not to, just this once.”
Rachel Friedman, The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure
