Travelers' Tales: Hong Kong: True Stories of Life on the Road
Editors: James O'Reilly, Larry Habegger, and Sean O'Reilly

The Travelers' Tales series is based on a simple premise: "That the experience of other travelers is our best map to a strange land." And there's no question that Hong Kong is just that: the intersection of East and West, old and new, known and unknown. This intriguing anthology contains dozens of stories about shopping, eating, loving, and talking by a gold mine of writers. Check out "Towards Fragrant Harbour" by Jan Morris--she's always good.

Educational and yummy...

A Fork in the Road
Author: Anik See

This is the Canadian author's first book, a collection of tasty travel tales surrounding the international language of food. Anik See is a high-achieving travellin' woman who's circled the globe on her own steam by foot and by bicycle. And the best part for us--Anik has included pages of delicious recipes. Look out for the how-to's of Dugh, an Iranian yogurt drink, the subtleties of Patagonian barbecue, and the mysteries behind those distinctive Thai flavourings.

Women's words on travel...

EarthAs a woman I have no country. As a woman I want no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.

There are always, in each of us, these two: the one who stays, the one who goes away.
--Eleanor Wilner, American Poet

To me, travel is a triple delight: anticipation, performance, and recollection.

How can I ever know whether or not I'm really happy here unless I go somewhere else?
