message 6: by Nancy H (new)

9. Cuba - Cuba Diaries (1/18/13) - A memoir written by an American woman who is a housewife in Cuba in the early 21st century.


message 7: by Nancy H (new)

Nancy H | 822 comments 10. Russia - The Gathering Storm (1/29/13) This is an intriguing story of pre-revolution Russia, in which the aristocracy also happens to be vampires, witches, and persons with paranormal abilities.


message 8: by Nancy H (last edited Feb 02, 2013 12:38PM) (new)

Nancy H | 822 comments 11. Papua New Guinea - Wanderlust (2/2/13) In her intriguing travel memoir, Elizabeth Eaves crosses the globe many times and visits/lives in many different countries. I am counting this for Papua New Guinea, where she had an interesting adventure getting lost in the jungle and experiencing many new and dangerous things.

Nancy H | 822 comments 12. Qatar - If the Sun Doesn't Kill You, the Washing Machine Will (2/7/2013)
13. Colombia Nighthawk (2/17/2013) - This book is the story of a hawk who migrates from Canada to South America and back, but since several chapters take place in Colombia, that is where I am going to count it.
14. Afghanistan The Bookseller of Kabul (2/17/2013)


message 10: by Nancy H (new)

Nancy H | 822 comments 15. Scotland - On Dublin Street (3/19/2013) - A very hot, sexy read set in Edinburgh, Scotland

Nancy H | 822 comments 16. India - Dark Road to Darjeeling - (4/3/13) - excellent mystery in the Lady Julia Grey series
17. Greece - Passport Diaries (4/10/13) - Story of travel, romance, and finding oneself


message 12: by Nancy H (last edited Apr 29, 2013 01:29PM) (new)

Nancy H | 822 comments 18. Iraq - Somebody, Please Tell Me Who I Am (4/19/13) - an amazing book about an American soldier who gets injured in Iraq

19. Macau - The Color of Tea (4/22/13) I loved this book and the setting was all new to me, so it was doubly interesting.


message 13: by Nancy H (new)

Nancy H | 822 comments 20. Tanzania - Crazy River (5/7/13) What an amazing book! Before I read this book, I knew nothing about the geography, culture, and people of Tanzania and Burundi, and only a smidgeon about Rwanda. Grant's journey through these countries is truly eye-opening, and his contrast of the politics and culture of Burundi and Rwanda paint a more accurate picture of the differences between the two countries than many other sources. His attempts to navigate the Malagasi River and his later interview with the president of Rwanda are truly enlightening. However, I also learned that I probably don't want to travel to any of these countries any time soon, despite my love of travel!

Nancy H | 822 comments 21. Austria - Mozart's Last Aria (6/11/13)
- Excellent historical fiction!


message 15: by Nancy H (new)

Nancy H | 822 comments 22. Indonesia - The Lunatic Express - An interesting story of one man's trip around the world using native means of transportation instead of tourist ones. Quite interesting!


message 16: by Nancy H (new)

Nancy H | 822 comments 23. Mauritius - 360 Degrees Longitude - I loved this book, which covered many countries. I am counting if for Mauritius because I also love fireworks, and the family had a great fireworks adventure there. There were many, many other great places in this book. If you like travel, I recommend you read this account of one family's journey around the world. Awesome!


message 17: by Nancy H (new)

24. Puerto Rico - If I Bring You Roses (7/20/13) - A very good multicultural romance

25. Argentina - The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost (7/24/13) - The main character went to several countries using travel as a means to finding our about herself. I am using Argentina since a lot happened to her in that country.
