The inspiring story of a woman's rebirth from an unfulfilled suburbanite to a liberated woman of the world. For years Rita Golden Gelman felt she lived someone else's life. She and her husband had a privileged existence, but she wasn't happy. When she suggests they separate for a couple of weeks, she is at first horrified when he suggests a couple of months, 'so they can be free to see other people'. Then Rita decides to fulfil a long- held dream- to travel the world. Fifteen years later, Rita is still travelling. The inspiring story of a woman's rebirth from an unfulfilled suburbanite to a liberated woman of the world. This is the story of her journey and personal transformation. From her first tentative trip to Mexico, swept off her feet by a Latin lover; to work as a tour guide in The Galapagos Islands; to live in a royal palace in Bali; to New Zealand where she 'adopts' a school full of children, Rita takes us on her many adventures. Spending days in some places, years in others, Rita captures the joys of connecting with people everywhere and celebrates her glorious transformation from an unfulfilled suburbanite to a liberated and incredibly self- assured woman of the world. More than simply a travel memoir, Tales of a Female Nomad is the story of a woman's rebirth.

Rita Golden Gelman is an ordinary woman who is living an extraordinary existence. At the age of forty-eight, on the verge of a divorce, Rita left an elegant life in L.A. to follow her dream of travelling the world, connecting with people in cultures all over the globe. In 1986 Rita sold her possessions and became a nomad, living in a Zapotec village in Mexico, sleeping with sea lions on the Galapagos Islands, and residing everywhere from thatched huts to regal palaces. She has observed orangutans in the rain forest of Borneo, visited trance healers and dens of black magic, and cooked with women on fires all over the world. Rita’s example encourages us all to dust off our dreams and rediscover the joy, the exuberance, and the hidden spirit that so many of us bury when we become adults.

Without Reservations is about a woman's dream come true - taking a year off to travel the world and rediscover what it is like to be an independent woman, without ties and without reservations. 'In many ways, I was an independent woman,' writes Alice Steinbach, single working mother and Pulitzer prize-winning journalist. 'For years I'd made my own choices, paid my own bills, shovelled my own snow, and had relationships that allowed for a lot of freedom on both sides.' Slowly, however, she saw that she had become quite dependent in another way. 'I had fallen into the habit - of defining myself in terms of who I was to other people and what they expected of me.' Who am I, she wanted to know, away from the things that define me - my family, children, job, friends? Steinbach searches for the answer in some of the most exciting places in the world: Paris, where she finds a soulmate in a Japanese man; Oxford, where she learns more from a ballroom dancing lesson than any of her studies; Milan, where she befriends a young woman about to be married. Beautifully illustrated with postcards Steinbach wrote home to herself, Without Reservations is an unforgettable voyage of discovery.

Kimberly grew up believing that international travel was not meant for black people. When taken, vacations meant visiting family and staying within the borders. Finding My Brave Space: A Black Girl's Tale of Wanderlust tells the story of an African-American woman, whose dream inspired her to buck tradition and ultimately led to her traveling to over sixty countries. Going against the expectations of her family, friends and community, she traveled the world finding her voice while coping - often very poorly - with the cancer that runs through her family. This unique memoir alternates between chapters about her first visit to each continent and chapters about her relationships with her family and community. Finding My Brave Space: A Black Girl's Tale of Wanderlust not only appeals to a wide range of travelers, and those yet to make the leap, but also to people who have been affected by illnesses in their family. This book is a compelling and often-unheard perspective of an African-American woman traveling to all seven continents; it will inspire you to find your brave space and live life to the fullest. Bravo! Kim has shared the magic and joy of international travel in a narrative designed to lure our black population into taking off and discovering the world...and themselves in the process. The how-to details emerge from the compelling personal story of a young black woman who refuses to play by the rules. Anyone, whatever the color, who has ever wondered what's "out there," will be swept into Kims' adventures and leave grateful to have been invited into her life. This book will change lives.

What Would You Do with a Yellow Envelope? After Kim and her husband decide to quit their jobs to travel around the world, they're given a yellow envelope containing a check and instructions to give the money away. The only three rules for the envelope: Don't overthink it; share your experiences; don't feel pressured to give it all away. Through Ecuador, Peru, Nepal, and beyond, Kim and Brian face obstacles, including major challenges to their relationship. As she distributes the gift to people she encounters along the way she learns that money does not have a thing to do with the capacity to give, but that giving—of ourselves—is transformational.

Kristin Newman's funny, sexy, and ultimately poignant debut memoir about mastering the art of the "vacationship." Kristin Newman spent her 20s and 30s dealing with the stresses of her high-pressure job as a television comedy writer, and the anxieties of watching most of her friends get married and start families while she wrestled with her own fear of both. Not ready to settle down and yet loathe to become a sad-sack single girl, Kristin instead started traveling the world, often alone, for a few months each year, falling madly in love with attractive locals who provided moments of the love she wanted without the cost of the freedom she needed. She introduces readers to the Israeli bartenders, Argentinian priests, Finnish poker players, and sexy Bedouins who helped her transform into "Kristin-Adjacent" on the road--a quieter, less judgmental, and, yes, sluttier version of herself at home. Ultimately, Kristin's adventures led her to a better understanding...
