Gutsy Women: Travel Tips and Wisdom for the Road (Travelers' Tales) Gutsy Women: Travel Tips and Wisdom for the Road by Marybeth Bond

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an indispensable handbook full of information that can save you time, trouble and maybe even your life. Women make up the largest segment of the traveling population and many of them are choosing to travel alone. When I was a student for a summer session in England I walked the streets of London cloaked in a red riding hood cape that covered me from head to toe. This might seem a bit over the top, but I truly did not want to be raped, mugged or noticed by would be Romeos. Marybeth Bond doesn’t suggest you go to these lengths but does give practical nuts and bolts tips on how to protect yourself on the road. Not just from predators, but from you own carelessness that can land you into a very uncomfortable place. She says this book is about more than travel. “It is about risk-taking, living, feeling, and learning, and loving.” In the “Travelers Tales” tradition, this little book is well worth the price of admission.
