Som Asrani | 5 comments I remember reading this book in 2010 but i am sure it was published before that. The book revolves around a group of people who are headed on a vacation/tour across europe. I cant remember correctly but I am guessing the tour operator was a female who has a fling with one of the people on the tour. I have been searching for this book but cannot find it. I am also entirely not sure if this book is similar to 'Without Reservations'. Does without reservations have a travel group? Please help. thank you :)

Som, do you mean the non-fiction book Without Reservations: The Travels of an Independent Woman by Alice Steinbach? One Amazon reviewer says, "For Alice Steinbach,a year off means staying at top-of-the-market tourist hotels in the top European cities, drinking coffee in celebrity cafes, taking a group tour in Italy, enroling in a summer school in Oxford and hanging out with other affluent English-speakers and compatriots."

I haven't read Steinbach's "Without Reservations". One Amazon reviewer says, "Alice Steinbach seems to believe that she's taken her life into her hands by taking 6 months out to live on the edge; 4 star hotels in Paris, a flat in Chelsea and with an American tour group through Italy."

Is your fictional book set in the present or some other time?

Are there any similar books involving travel groups in Europe?

So do you want to call this Solved, Som? Have you had a chance to read "Without Reservations" to confirm?
