100 Places Every Woman Should Go

Travelers’ Tales

February 5, 2007

Seeking the tranquility of a Buddhist meditation center? The raucousness of a rumba club? Stephanie Elizondo Griest’s guidebook, 100 Places Every Woman Should Go, will not only inspire but compel you to hit the road – in a group, with a friend, or sola. Discover the world’s best places to:

* commune with the feisty spirits of heroines like Hatshepsut, Sappho, Catherine the Great, and Frida Kahlo
* race a camel, yak, or pony across the Mongolian steppe
* dive for pearls in Bahrain
* take a mud bath in a volcano off the coast of Colombia
* dance with Voodoo priestesses in Benin and urban cowboys in Texas
* roast in a steamy banya with a bottle of vodka (or two) in Moscow

Divided into sections like “Powerful Women and Their Places in History,” “Places of Indulgence,” and “Places of Adventure,” this guidebook includes contact information, resources, and recommended reading. “Ten Tips For Wandering Women” features safety advice plus pointers on how to stop departing airplanes and avoid getting tossed off Trans-Siberian trains for not having your papers in order. The foreword is by Holly Morris, author of Adventure Divas: Searching the Globe for Women Who Are Changing the World.
