A great travel book about a single older woman, who finds out how to redicover the woman she once was and the woman she was to be, on a trip in Europe alone. I really enjoyed this book. Fun,insightful and a quick read.
Memoir of a NY Times Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who spends a year in Europe. The author, a divorced mother of two grown sons tries to break away from her satisfying but too comfortable lifestyle. Friendships, adventures, romance and mishaps ensue.
This is one of my favorite travel writing books. Steinbach really takes the reader into her stories, and makes you feel as though you're there with her. I especially love the unique way in which she recorded memories by sending herself postcards. This one's on my keeper shelf! The sequel, Educating Alice, was good as well, but didn't keep me as captivated as Without Reservation.
A wonderful travel adventure by a woman who traveled on her own all through Europe. She meets interesting people and has delightful experiences
A fascinating story of a woman's journey to find adventure and to find the person she used to be.
