The list is actually The 100 Most Celebrated Travel Books of All Time and it’s here. Given that my “second act” is 12 years away, I am just going to try to read the first 10 books which I am surprised to find that I have read NONE of them!! What is your favorite travel memoir book? Mine is still A Year in Provence and On Rue Tatin. Maybe I am just partial to France.
My amazing Mom Friend is now reinventing herself as a writer. Her first book is still being drafted but an excerpt is now published in Best Travel Writing by Women 2011. Her piece also ran in The Boston Globe magazine that details her flamenco dancing experience while living in Spain. It is a gorgeously written moving piece that is also so true about the work life balance that all parents juggle. Give yourself a present and read the Globe article now … and then book a trip somewhere!
