The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost

On a day where nothing is opened.. I ventured into Books-a-Million yesterday (Easter) and browsed through their travel books. Came across this one that fits me to a "T"! I already can't do anything productive, because all I want to do is continue reading this author's narrative story about her fantasic life-changing adventures. So far, I've read about her first time experience in a hostel, coming across a strange Italian guy in her "girls only" dorm room... reminds me of my same experience in a hostel in Barcelona. Love these crazy memories.

HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone wishing to drop everything and travel.. to step outside of their comfort zone.. and to have the adventure of a lifetime.

The Good Girl's Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure.
 You can buy it HERE through Amazon for only $2.70 (used)

Short description of the book from Amazon:

Rachel Friedman has always been the consummate good girl who does well in school and plays it safe, so the college grad surprises no one more than herself when, on a whim (and in an effort to escape impending life decisions), she buys a ticket to Ireland, a place she has never visited. There she forms an unlikely bond with a free-spirited Australian girl, a born adventurer who spurs Rachel on to a yearlong odyssey that takes her to three continents, fills her life with newfound friends, and gives birth to a previously unrealized passion for adventure. 

As her journey takes her to Australia and South America, Rachel discovers and embraces her love of travel and unlocks more truths about herself than she ever realized she was seeking. Along the way, the erstwhile good girl finally learns to do something she’s never done before: simply live for the moment.
