really liked it
bookshelves: inspiration, memoir, travel
Read from September 02 to November 01, 2011

I read this when it first came out and found it absolutely inspirational. A second reading hasn't changed that: the author's gumption and adventuresome spirit in leaving her life behind to experience what the world has to offer still excites me. Yes, the lessons she learns aren't quite as complex as one might hope, but she is willing to try just about anything and trust just about anybody.

Wouldn't you love to live throughout the world, off the beaten path?

Sandee I'll be interested to hear how she financially supports herself.

Marjorie Elwood I've read it before and, if I recall correctly, she has written some inordinately large number of children's books and she lives off of the royalties. She also travels very, very inexpensively....

Sandee Bummer - so many of these books are about people who can afford it.

Marjorie Elwood Yes. I'm reading another one - Eat My Globe - that involves a guy who has a lot of cash to begin with, prior to heading off for a year. But I like the idea of royalties, to support oneself. Time to write a book ;-).

Sandee I know how much you like writing! ;)

Marjorie Elwood Oh yeah.... ;-)
