For every woman who's ever dreamed of dogsledding across frozen waste or paddling down the Amazon but doesn't want to go it alone, Adventures in Good Company
is the perfect book; within its pages is a wealth of information about organized travel opportunities for women. Author Thalia Zepatos covers a whole world of activities: snorkeling and scuba diving, rock climbing, bicycling, and yes, dog mushing in Minnesota. There's plenty here for the less athletic as well: spa vacations, spiritual retreats, and leadership development opportunities. Zepatos also includes those hard-to-find programs designed for disabled women, women with children, lesbians, and older women.
In addition to information about choosing a company and a trip, preparing, and organizing your own travel group, Zepatos peppers her book with entertaining essays by a constellation of female adventurers and writers. Adventures in Good Company has a little bit of everything: good advice, inspiration, and a healthy dollop of humor. So if you're thinking about doing something a little bit different on your next vacation, you'll want to check out Thalia Zepatos's Adventures in Good Company.
