For those of us trying to travel to the beat of our own drum, Elizabeth Gilbert’s down to earth writing in, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia is definitely worth checking out. This book is delightful, funny, at times sad, but an inspiration throughout.Elizabeth takes you along for the ride as she searches to find herself: through food, prayer and love.
Sharing in the gastronomical delights of Italy, searching for spiritual discipline and joy in the majestic lands of India, seeking love and balance in the exotic Bali…you are sure to be transported.
As Kan Lamat so eloquently states, “As a hitchhiker thru many lands, my wanderlust delighted and splashed in the puddles of scenic descriptions and friendly faces that fill this book. Many memories resurfaced, particularly in India, and future plans were altered to taste in a bit of the lovely author’s experience. As a holyman, I love watching myself and others be dragged, kicking and screaming, by our divine guidance to a more healthy, holy self…As a walking advertising campaign for everything I love, I have found that I can turn anyone onto this book simply by handing it to them with the words “pick a paragraph… any paragraph.” I have yet to have anyone simply shrug off what they randomly read.
I second that one Kan!
