[on the bedside table] Tales of a Female Nomad

First of all, I want to congratulate Rita for taking the first step in embarking on her nomadic journey.

Back in those days, solo female travellers were unheard of, unlike nowadays (on a lesser extent). It really takes guts for one to take the first step in booking that flight, let alone a middle-aged woman, on the verge of a divorce.

The book recounts her travels all over the world; Mexico, Bali, Guatemala, Israel and New Zealand, just to name a few. Her travels take you, deep into the jungles, to unknown tribes and villages, and to the most unexpected encounters with fellow travel companions.

Despite her exciting adventures, it was infuriating to read about her “frustrations”. Frustrations, which in my opinion, were more like societal ignorance and unrealistic expectations. From demanding her way into visiting scared jungle tribes to showing unsubtle anguish towards the women in Israel.

Overall, a good read to discover the off-the-beaten track things you can do on your travels.

Enjoy! xx
