If you’re looking for a light and lively read this summer, one that will take you away from the every day for awhile, try The Good Girl’s Guide to Getting Lost: A Memoir of Three Continents, Two Friends, and One Unexpected Adventure, by Rachel Friedman. In it the author recounts her impulsive decision to live and work in Ireland on a four month visa, and how that led her to friendship and further voyages she would never otherwise have had, and finding inner strength she never suspected. The author’s writing style is very engaging, and carries you along.
After reading this book you might like to do some research of you own about what places you might like to visit. If you’re not quite sure where to start you might try some general travel guidebooks, such as The Travel Book: A Journey Through Every Country in the World, Frommer's 500 Places to Take Your Kids Before They Grow Up, The 100 Best Affordable Vacations, or The Curmudgeon's Guide to--Child-free Travel: Exactly How and Precisely Where to Enjoy Idyllic Grownup Getaways.
If you already have some idea of where you want to go, look at guidebooks for specific locations, such as Ireland, Australia or South America, or guidebooks by such publishers as Frommers, Fodors, DK Eyewitness, National Geographic, Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, etc.
If you just want to be an armchair traveler the library carries a multitude of travel DVDs for your viewing pleasure.
