O Magic oxygen when suffocating between trips
I'm a writer traveling the world and have been desperately looking for just this thing.
The author's stories, style (travel, personality and writing) filled the inspiration in my heart back up after a summer of being a full-time patient for a mystery autoimmune disorder that has been trying to kill me. Some think maybe due to the summer before in India.
There were times the story fell a wee bit short for me (ex: jumping age from youth to middle-age without a bridge, going right into a story of a new lover without a bridge about leaving her husband, the stories in the end seeming to go fast-forward comparatively) and even more moments the narrator took me out of the story (incorrect accents, talking out a song instead of singing it, incorrect pronunciation and/or inflection) but these were few and far between. The narrator was a great fit to be believable and bring to life for the character of this author over all.
I'll look for more just like this and will make note of the narrator as a plus for making future decisions. ✈️🌍🎤📖

This is a fabulous and fun book of adventure, learning and exploration. The wonderfully descriptive writing style of the author makes you feel like you are with her on these fabulous trips. At times hilarious.....and other times very poignant as she shares the stories of people met along the path of life. I highly recommend listening to this one.....and the narrator does a fantastic job. Enjoy!
