Summary, etc.:
"Kate Wills didn't expect to completely remake her life at 33. But after a divorce, she set out to do just that, alone. As a travel journalist, Kate had been jetting in and out of unfamiliar cities for over a decade, but this time-with no press crew or assistants-she felt strangely ill-prepared. So she turned to other female solo travelers for inspiration. Looking back through history, Kate discovered the astonishing women who paved her way. She set off to Israel to follow the footsteps of Egeria, a 4th century nun and first ever recorded travel writer, then to China, Bali and beyond. A Trip of One's Own is a heartfelt invitation to start seriously planning the trip of your dreams, packed with tips and hacks in a thrilling, woman-focused adventure"-- Provided by publisher.
