This book is everything all rolled up into one--memoir, travelogue, diary, self help guide, as well as, romance novel. As I engrossed myself in Lisa and George's story, I too, experienced the good and bad food, the amazing sunsets, the incredible ocean life, and even, the disgusting leeches. The authors held nothing back as they described in great detail the unique countries they visited, the good and bad hotels they slept in, the squat toilets they used, when there were toilets, and the variety...more

I love reading travel books; memoirs are fun and the good ones make you feel like you're really there. So I was especially looking forward to reading Traveling In Sin, about the year my pals Lisa and George Rajna spent abroad in Southeast Asia. Their story is most unusual: after a fairly short dating period, George invited Lisa to join him on the adventure of a lifetime, and she swallowed all her fears, quit her job, and went with him. On the way, Lisa lost 60 lbs, George proposed, and they both...more
A wonderful book, travel memoir, love story and life changing experiences.

More than a travelogue, this is a charming and unique love story as Lisa and George come together through ups and downs of backpacking to realize they are made for each other. Along the way, they meet several interesting characters. The writing style is novel as Lisa and George take turns to each describe their trip and their feelings along the way. What comes out clearly is the warmth of the two that helps them to get through every dot on the map with a smile. An interesting account of what all...more
I had to stop reading. It was like reading the longest and most boring travel blog with a dash of "we are culturally and politically better than you" snooty liberalism. So funny to read about their environmental views on oil and green living as they jet across the eastern hemisphere spewing more carbon then the people they demonize. Typical my "intentions are good so ignore my deeds or results" people. Book-wise its extremely elementary writing - really felt like watching someone's never-ending...more
