Rachel Friedman has always been the consummate good girl who does well in school and plays it safe, so the college grad surprises no one more than herself when, on a whim (and in an effort to escape impending life decisions), she buys a ticket to Ireland, a place she has never visited. There she forms an unlikely bond with a free-spirited Australian girl, a born adventurer who spurs Rachel on to a yearlong odyssey that takes her to three continents, fills her life with newfound friends, and gives birth to a previously unrealized passion for adventure.nbsp; As her journey takes her to Australia and South America, Rachel discovers and embraces her love of travel and unlocks more truths about herself than she ever realized she was seeking. Along the way, the erstwhile good girl finally learns to do something she's never done before: simply live for the moment.… (lisätietoja)

I'll be honest - DNF. Don't care. ( )

A quick but interesting read about a 20-something woman who takes a break from college and the life she is expected to lead and goes to Ireland for 4 months. The memoir is a tale of her growth away from family expectations and a "normal" job/life and into the person she discovers she wants to be: brave, risk taking, traveler. She travels to Australia and, though stays with a friend, she explores the continent on her own with several side trips. Then to South America. Alone. In Bolivia, Argentina, Peru. A well balanced story of her adventures, but also of her road to self discovery of the person she wants to be. Recommended. ( )

This was an unexpected amount of fun. It was one of my Read Harder 2017 picks, my travel memoir for task #8. It turns out that this was a perfect option for me. Friedman experience some different cultures, goes to some crazy places and even lives there a while but she does not get all judgey about the way people live or lose sight of where she has come from and the luxuries she enjoys.

That said, these travels of hers also take her on a bit of an internal journey. This I also appreciated. I know that some people do manage to go places and stay absolutely unchanged by them, but I relate more to Friedman on this account. Traveling changes me too. Its not so much learning about others but getting the opportunity to live in another community that looks at the world a little differently. Its hard for it to not rub off a little on me. Its hard to explain.

The point here is that Friedman recognizes this. She recognizes and relates well the value of getting outside our own communities for a while and seeing what else is out there. She's not quite trying to find herself, but I feel like that's the real journey here.

I am jealous of all the places Friedman goes. I am fairly well traveled but I haven't been to any of the countries Friedman goes to in this book. They're all on my list of places I dream of going. On the other hand, her description of the backpacker/hostel life assures me that this is not the way for me to travel. Backpacking maybe, hostels definitely not. Then again, I'm married with a little kid now. We're working on an elongated summer concept around the US to hit all 50 states one day. That's more doable in the short term.

Altogether, I really loved it. Friedman's style of writing was fun and engaging and her travels were interesting. ( )

Ok memoir of travel. Light on ireland hravy on south America. Something lacking throughout the pages but difficult to pin point. Enjoyable travel books have a magic to them that includes a genuine love of adventure and sincere interest in the people met along the way. Prehaps the difficulty of not dpeaking Spanish and its derivatives and spending so much time there was a deal breaker for me. Australia was a total bust. ( )

Rachel takes a trip to Ireland between her junior and seniors years of college and it changes her life. She has always done what was expected, she always had a plan and she thought that was who she was. The trip to Ireland was a spur of the moment trip and it changed everything. The trip to Ireland lead to a stay in Australia and a trek through South America. She travels alone for the first time in her life, she meets new people and steps outside her comfort zone. Rachel learns that it is okay to not have a plan, that she likes living in the moment.
