Okay, so this book does not provide any fresh metaphors for life, and it's possible the author is a bit full of herself (she's a blogger! She's supposed to be!); who am I to judge such things? On the other hand, the photography is atmospheric and enticing, the mini-memoir that is the text did much to re-awaken me to life-as-adventure no matter where you are, and the author's (albeit wandering) heart is definitely in the right place. In my case, the book served as the introduction to the blog, not the other way 'round, and what a sumptuous intro it is. I recommend this to all wanderers at heart. It is a dense scrapbook designed by an amazing stylist who is unafraid to tell her story.
