This is a travel book I snagged for our road trip last week. I'd read the author's first book, "Tales of a Female Nomad" and loved her adventurous spirit. This book continues with short essays from kindred spirits sharing their adventures and recipes from their travels. I probably marked over 20 pages of authors to seek out and recipes to try.
Gelman is a children's author with many published works. She divorced in her early 50's, sold everything she owned and became a nomad, travelling the world by sharing homes of members of the Serva organization.
I'm not nearly as risk-taking or trusting but I find her stories and those of her contributors to be inspiring to step a little bit farther out of my comfort zone.
