In her first book, TangoDiva.com founder Williamson uses 10 criteria-among them safety, transportation and friendliness-to determine a list of destinations for adventurous women, then provides the skinny on each. But before delving into her exceedingly thorough chick-trip dispatches, Williamson provides an incisive quiz to help readers determine the best trip for them. Dozens of global hot spots are profiled here, with an especially extensive list of European locations. Rating each of her destinations on four important variables-cultural opportunities, activity level, weather and social interaction-Williamson gives readers a feel for each city; true to her insider's vision, she even dishes out the home phone numbers of American ex-pats willing to offer a home-cooked meal (for a small fee). Other off-the-beaten-track suggestions include trying the Moroccan baths in Paris, and tracking down a bar in Beijing so hip it attracts British DJs-"From Britain!" Even though this easy-to-breeze-through guide offers information on locales as far-flung as Machu Picchu and Tokyo, a number of fun stateside escapes ensures that even "girls" on a limited budget will be ready to lone-wolf it.
