Much of this is common sense but there were a lot of inspirational stories The resources at the end of the book make this a worthwhile read 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 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 admissionwwwlindaballouauthorcomLost Angel Walkabout One Traveler’s Tales I found it a little odd that the author who includes uotes in boxes on pages throughout the book uoted herself an awful lot Still I continued skimming through the travel tips which are really about as common sense as you could get That is until I got to the page where she recommends a writing basic vocabulary words in another language ON YOUR ARM and b wearing a fanny pack because that will make you less of a target for thieves Now point A is ridiculous but point B? COME ONNeedless to say don't waste your time with this book There are much better travel books out there with advice that will be much valuable I was very disappointed in this book possibly because the title was so inaccurate This is a book of common sense travel tips Come on did you really need to tell me that excessive use of taxis can put a crimp in my budget? that would possibly be of some use for a high school girl going on her first spring break but not for a gutsy woman At least it was short so I could move on uickly This is obviously not a literary book it's just a little book with tips and advice for female travellers particularly ones going solo I read this in preparation for a trip to Europe that I plan on taking alone Definitely inspiring and helpful Some decent tips particularly if traveling alone but some of this is also common sense I'd recommend checking it out from the library or sitting down for a short read in Barnes and Noble rather than buying it you can find what your looking for by skimming it in about 15 minutes Not too sue where the gutsy women come in; these tips are mostly common sense Maybe it's because the book was written in 1996 and the wisdom in it is much well known now than it was then Still it's a uick read and has some valuable information for the first time traveler Such common sense bordering on ridiculous If you had never traveled alone before you might be scared off by some of the tips warnings I also expected stories from a variety of women but it was mostly just the author Her stories were interesting enough to read the whole book and I admire her experiences but I wouldn't recommend this book to future travelersAlso this edition had a lot of typos Helpful with some good tips Glad she had some uips from people older in their 70s uick read tips for packing and traveling safely but mostly about gaining confidence
