Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love meets Chelsea Handler's My Horizontal Life. The result is an irreverent, bawdy and at times painfully honest look at the oft-ignored realities of travel. Catch a ride on packed buses, smoky trains, tiny planes, bouncy Jeeps, tipsy mopeds, tuk-tuks, rickshaws, horses, and camels across thirty-five years and over fifty countries from Antarctica to Zimbabwe. Travel with Leslie as she dodges sacred cows in India, is blessed by a shaman in Papua New Guinea, rafts the whitewater rapids of the Nile, swims with jellyfish, whales, and dolphins, attends an all-male bachelor party in Yemen, films inside a mental hospital in China, and lives in a purple tent at the edge of a jungle. As a cowgirl in the Outback or an English teacher of businessmen, this woman's inspirational journey is filled with adventure, love, loss, and the never-ending search for a decent toilet.
