Overview

This book is about the importance of girlfriends and about the things they can do to celebrate these friendships. A girlfriend getaway can be really simple, say a tea party in the lobby of the local hotel. Other getaways are more complex -- weeklong tramps through Mongolia, for example. The point isn't what you do or where you go. The point is simply this¿ girlfriends need to get together.

Each of this book's eight chapters gives plenty of ideas for where to go and what to do as well as inspirational "True-Life Tales" from girlfriends who have already discovered the joys of getting away. Each chapter offers suggested locales, complete with a comprehensive rating of the four components of a successful G.G. (girlfriend getaway):

* A place to talk. This is the most important component. Girls absolutely MUST have a suitable place to discuss everything from George Clooney's backside to the latest diet.

* A place to gawk. Good scenery (a.k.a. cute guys) is vital to every G.G.

* A place to rock. It's not that you're going to be out partying every night (Hey! if component "A" is rated high enough, you may never leave the room), but its essential that the "party" option is present.

* A place to dock. Just long enough to get pampered. You work hard the other 51 weeks of the year, so every good G.G. has to have a place to get massaged or wrapped in mud.

The main thing to remember is that most girlfriends don't really care what they do just so long as they have a chance to connect and to share, making this book the perfect start to launch a memorable tradition.

Read an Excerpt

The real reason we plan girlfriend getaways is because we want to get together. Make that we need to get together. We need girlfriend getaways like pancakes need syrup, like big tops need belts. We need to scratch that itch we all have to talk without censoring, to blab without editing, to have somebody say, "you know, I feel the exact same way." When it comes right down to it, it doesn't matter -- REALLY -- where we getaway to.

But I figure as long as we're going, we might as well go somewhere cool. That's what this chapter is about. Getting away to one of the coolest places in the known universe--a spa. That's spa as in soak-away-your cares, as in peel away those wrinkles, as in wipe away that old-fashioned, stressed-out way of being.
