Join the SF Travel Book Club on August 1st when we will discuss Life is a Trip: The Transformative Magic of Travel by Judith Fein!
National Geographic Traveler says "Fein's globetrotting adventures remind us that we travel to be changed, in big ways and small."
"One famous travel writer, Bruce Chatwin, one asked another, Paul Theroux, what he thought about his work. As recounted in Theroux’s collection of travel pieces, Fresh Air Fiend, Theroux’s major complaint was that Chatwin "never explained the difficulties and in-betweens of travel—where he slept, what he ate, what kind of shoes he wore." In Life is a Trip: the Transformative Magic of Travel, Santa-Fe based travel writer Judith Fein describes many such in-betweens. For her, the most mundane moments are often turning points, when a trip can turn into a catharsis, where plans are thrown out and intuition takes over. Fein loves to take herself off the beaten path and then wait to see what happens. Her collection of essays is not so much about an intrepid traveler as a spiritual searcher, someone willing to travel to the ends of the Earth to find answers."
