Publisher's Summary

An Experience Definitely Worth Allegedly Having is a collection of essays on travel selected by Edith Zimmerman, the founder of the colorfully offbeat women’s website The Hairpin. Like The Hairpin, these essays are funny, weird, adventurous, and moving. There are stories about following a mysterious stranger’s maps in Mexico, attending endless step aerobics classes in Buenos Aires, faking a terrible British accent in London, and navigating a nude spa in Stockholm. About loneliness, connection, and sunburn. And about daring ourselves to be brave and embracing being scared.

These stories are tied together by relationships: Making them, losing them, how we behave in their absence. How we thrive when we’re far from home and falling in and out of love in all of the world’s beautiful places.

Enjoyable!

I really liked almost all of this. I did dislike the male reader's voice and story though.

Random travel experiences

Well read series of random travel experiences. Seemed to be a lot of drinking involves. Nothing really exciting in any story. Most stories seemed to be more about the person traveling ;and drink) than about the travel.
