Item description for 100 Places Every Woman Should Go (Travelers' Tales) by Stephanie Elizondo Griest & Holly Morris...
Overview Draws on interviews with ambitious travelers as well as the author's own experiences to recommend a series of activities in regions of the world of significance to such women role models as Hatshepsut and Catherine the Great, in a guide that describes options ranging from a volcano mud bath to a camel race across the Mongolian steppe. Original.
With its breezy reviews and insightful advice, 100 Places Every Woman Should Go encourages women of any age to see the world — in a group, with a friend, or solo — and inspires them to create their own list of dreams. Based on her own explorations of many countries, states, and regions, and on interviews with travelers, award-winning author Stephanie Elizondo Griest highlights 100 special destinations and challenging activities — from diving for pearls in Bahrain to racing a camel, yak, or pony across Mongolia; to dancing with voodoo priestesses in Benin and urban cowboys in Texas; to taking a mud bath in a volcano off the coast of Colombia. Divided into such sections as “Places Where Women Made History,” “Places of Indulgence,” and “Places of Adventure,” this guidebook includes timely contact information, resources, and recommended reading. “Ten Tips For Wandering Women” features safety precautions plus pointers on haggling, packing, and staying parasite-free. Vivid portraits of free spirits like Frida Kahlo (“A tequila-slamming, dirty joke-telling smoker, this famous artist was bisexual and beautiful”) help travelers expand their experience.

For women of all ages Sep 17, 2008
This book is like reading letters from a college buddy on the road. It was really inspiring to hear about all of quirky yet helpful histories from around the world, giving a deeper layer to traveling. Love the little know histories, loved the shopping advice, just loved the fact that this book is written by a woman for women of all ages. Good job Stephanie!

Grab your best girlfriends for a fun getaway. This book has lots of suggestions for a great time. Restaurants, hotels, places to see and things to do. A good "how to" guide.
Easy to Read Sep 19, 2007
I liked this book, it's a cursory review of over 100 places that could have significance to women. Really, men could read it too. There are a lot of nontraditional places in the book as well as standbys.
