Life is a Trip by Judith Fein - SF Travel Book Club August Meeting

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."

    It was pleasant to attend the meeting. I bought the Sept read. I wonder if anyone would like to read with me at times. The Lunatic Express is more of a journalist style, with vivid visual description of his tour. Not much humor in it. Slightly dry. But it's a great fun to see his description for what he saw. I'm not sure at my age, I'll enjoy that much of chaos living environment, it brings me more sad sympathy than joyfulness when reading.

    Great forum to discuss book with interested and interesting people. The group is very well organized and I was impressed that it has been in place for 5 years. Kudos to Tara and Laurie for their great organizational skills.
    I was delighted to be part of the discussion and look forward to returning to get to know the members better and read more for leisure - and travel too!
