In 1986, 48 years old and on the verge of divorce, the author left a life of privilege and began a nomadic existence. She was a writer of children’s books with a graduate degree in anthropology and dreamed of experiencing other cultures. Over the years she spent time in various exotic locations, Mexico, the Galapagos Islands, Bali, New Guinea, Israel, Nicaragua, Thailand and New Zealand. I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I expected too, in fact began to find it somewhat tedious by the time she reached Bali. I think it may have something to do with the writing. At times I found it somewhat repetitious and she met so many people who although memorable to her, were perhaps not so for the reader.
