About the Author

Stephanie Elizondo Griest has mingled with the Russian Mafiya, polished Chinese propaganda, and belly danced with Cuban rumba queens. These adventures are the subject of her award-winning first book: "Around the Bloc: My Life in Moscow, Beijing, and Havana" (Villard/Random House, 2004). Atria/Simon & Schuster will publish her memoirs from Mexico in 2008. She has also written for the New York Times, Washington Post, Latina Magazine, and numerous Travelers' Tales anthologies. An avid traveler, she has explored 25 countries and once spent a year driving 45,000 miles across the United States, documenting its history for a website for kids called The Odyssey. She has been a Hodder Fellow at Princeton University and is currently a Senior Fellow at the World Policy Institute and a Board Member of the National Coalition Against Censorship.

Format: Paperback
I must admit to initially being skeptical about this book, as I usually find 'Top 10'-style lists to be superficial. But this book highlights fascinating places I didn't even know existed, or that I never imagined visiting. All of them have a women's slant -- be it a place where a heroine "made history"(like the plaza in Buenos Aires where the 'Mothers of the Disappeared' march every Thursday to protest the disappearance of their children during the war) or a place inhabited by a goddess or deity (like a Hawaiian volcano worshiped by locals because the goddess Pele lurks within) or a woman-owned business (like the first women-owned sex shop: Good Vibrations in San Francisco). The author makes an effort to point out socially responsible destinations, such as "fair trade" sites, eco-lodges, and women's cooperatives, as well as places to do volunteer work. The writing-style is very upbeat: funny in some places, poignant in others, and inspirational throughout!

Reading this book makes you want to grab a pen and paper and start your own list of "must visit" places. And many of the places Griest has described should be on your list! From the best ice cream in the world, to the proper way to bathe in a Japanese bath house, to floating the Ganges at sunrise, to two-stepping in Texas, she has compiled an extensive collection of special places for women to be nourished, inspired, and entertained. This is not your typical travel guide; instead, she offers a unique perspective on adventures that will take you deep into the true spirit of a place or people. Her personal observations will make you laugh, and the additional resources will help you plan your own trip to these amazing places - or inspire you to find your own. Don your traveling shoes, tuck this book into your backpack, and get out there and experience life!

This book is like reading letters from a college buddy on the road. It was really inspiring to hear about all of quirky yet helpful histories from around the world, giving a deeper layer to traveling. Love the little know histories, loved the shopping advice, just loved the fact that this book is written by a woman for women of all ages. Good job Stephanie!

This book was a gift, and the recipient absolutely love it. The only critique I have is that the car on the front suggested to me that many (or most) of the destinations might be domestic. That wasn't the case, however; most of the destinations were overseas...I won't be driving my red cadillac to Turkey anytime soon! Guess I should have read the description more closely!

I liked this book, it's a cursory review of over 100 places that could have significance to women. Really, men could read it too. There are a lot of nontraditional places in the book as well as standbys.

I'm sure for someone else this would be a great book, but I just didn't click with it. My background: early 50s, divorced, educator with a history of traveling extensively. I was looking for a book with detailed discussions of locations. I wanted hotel recommendations, markets to search out and the perfect place to eat. I wanted depth. This book doesn't have what I was hoping for.

Grab your best girlfriends for a fun getaway. This book has lots of suggestions for a great time. Restaurants, hotels, places to see and things to do. A good "how to" guide.

I enjoyed flipping through this book. I was surprised to find I had traveled to at least two of these places. :) It reminded me to dream and add destinations to my dream list. Thanks!
