Travel Books By Women For Women
Shopping on the Internet...

We all know that there's more to planning a trip than finding the lowest possible airfare or asking friends for names of those budget restaurants they enjoyed on their last holiday. Journeywoman is a firm believer that the more extensive your travellin' research the more you will derive from the actual travel experience.

Twenty-five years ago there were few books written by and for the woman with "a journey" on her mind. Today there are many and that's a delicious thing!

Journeywoman suggests the following travel-related books written or edited by women. As usual I've based my selection on titles that are available online. In this way, journey women anywhere can go cyber bookshopping whenever and as often as the spirit moves them.

Happy browsing, everybody!

Smart Woman's Guide to Business TravelThis book introduces all sorts of travel issues specific to women on business and provides down-to-earth advice to make your trip more productive, less stressful, and even more fun. Look for safety information, tips for making childcare arrangements, advice on the etiquette of travelling with men on business, packing lists, using an expense account responsibly and much more. The author says, "Instead of embracing the travel opportunities that our world brings, all too often, we women suffer through them. But armed with knowledge, a good strategy, and a positive outlook, it's easy to turn business travel tribulations into wonderful adventures." Journeywoman says, "Amen."
