Gutsy Women: Travel Tips Jul 9, 2008
Book arrived in timely manner and is in very good condition. The information it contained was very helpful; it gave me confidence to travel alone.
Wonderful advice! Perfect for a busy woman! Apr 5, 2007
Short, spicy, and fun to read! Not too long- bullet pointed tips are helpful as they are easy to see, and tips are very concise. Bond inspires me to get on the road, and reminds me to continue to listen to my inner voice! Can't wait for my next traveling experience!
Useful Tips at your Fingertips Mar 15, 2003
While this book contains plenty of travel advice that I already know, it is quite handy for acting as a reminder to things I may forget along the way. The bulleted lists are helpful. I don't have to search paragraph after paragraph to find something I want to know. Armed with this book, I shall fearlessly begin my pan-Pacific adventure!
A ValuableTool Nov 7, 2002
The author has written a book packed so full of valuable information and wisdom that every woman who travels anywhere should read it over and over again. Many of the tips are just as valid when applied to domestic travel as to travel in foreign lands.
Some of the topics are safety and security (TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS is her mantra), women traveling together, health and hygiene, keeping in touch, bargaining, tipping, packing.
I especially appreciated these tips:when to purchase plane tickets (Wednesdays) and when not to do so (Saturdays); to carry a combination lock -- you never know when it might come in handy; always carry enough money in your shoe to get you out of a tight spot----these are things I probably could have thought of but hadn't.
Bond leads the traveler-to-be through all she should do to adequately prepare: reading guidebooks, making an itinerary (and leaving a copy of it at home with family and friends), getting information from other travelers, doing research, learning a few words in the language of the countries you are visiting, and making checklists.
This book is wonderfully organized and is a MUST for every woman who wants to travel and feel both safe and well-prepared.
