Nancy O’Hare was pursuing a successful career in finance after earning an executive MBA when the pull of leading a simpler, healthier lifestyle took her to discover different cultures across foreign lands. She never looked back. Searching for Unique, O’Hare’s second book is a sincere effort at creating a well-informed travel to remote, challenging places.

The author has a plethora of travel stories to share with the reader, but I’m not sure this should be read cover to cover like I did. It is more a guide, a coffee table book and the book blurb describes it well as “bite-sized narratives and on-the-ground travel advice.” The photos inside are exceptional as well, and add to the sense of place. The narratives do have good descriptions of the diverse places this book takes you, but the stories didn’t move me, didn’t have a beginning, middle, and en ...more

While most of these may not appear in anyone’s tops lists they are well worth your time and effort to discover. It also took me to countries where I have little knowledge i.e.: Bhutan, M ...more

A Grand Adventure

O’Hare pens an adventurous journey in Searching for Unique. This is the first book of this author's that I've read. The title brings the reader in, but it is an unexpected and wondrous adventure. The journey is done by hiking and visiting unchartered areas, and the reader goes right along with the author. The adventure itself must've been enchanting and captivating. I wasn't there, but I'm really glad that the author took this reader along, even if on a virtual journey. The auth
