    Indispensable.

    If you are a woman who has never been to India before, you really should take the time to read this book before you go! From packing know-how, to boarding options, to how to deal with beggars, this book has it all. The author has been through it all and she knows what you need to know. I love that she is very aware of the tourists' impact on the environment and the economy, and tries to make conscientious suggestions. With a whole section dedicated to safety, you will feel secure if you follow her recommendations. But best of all are those little tips that enrich your traveling experience by helping you to relate to strangers in a strange land, wherever you might go. Reading the view of a seasoned traveler like Whitman helps us to understand how to approach travel with the right attitude. Like, suggesting that you bring little gifts from home in case you want to show your appreciation for someone, suggesting that you bring postcards from home as icebreakers, suggesting you be sure to ask the taxi driver what music you're listening to if you like it. These little things might sound trivial, but they show an openness, and eagerness to connect. We might not apply every bit of it, but having read the book, we can absorb this spirit. Approaching the trip with this state of mind can help us to have more frequent and or more meaningful interactions with the locals, and really, isn't that what travel is all about?
