Book Review

Reviewed by Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite

In a fun, well-written and informative new book penned by author Marianne C. Bohr, Gap Year Girl: A Baby Boomer Adventure Across 21 Countries recounts the story of the author and her husband as they said goodbye to their jobs and all of their worldly possessions in order to return to places they had visited on their travels in their youth. Following a dream held closely by many of the baby boomer generation, the couple traverses 21 continents during their journey, lives on a budget, and sees and does more than many do in several lifetimes. Readers will smile, laugh, and be touched at the author's recounting of their experiences, and if they didn't have wanderlust before, they certainly will now!

I so enjoyed Gap Year Girl: A Baby Boomer Adventure Across 21 Countries. Author Marianne C. Bohr has done a great job at finding the perfect balance between telling the story of their travels, providing information about each place they visited, and just being plain entertaining. Any reader with an interest in travel, especially those of the baby boomer generation, would thoroughly enjoy this book. I highly recommend Gap Year Girl: A Baby Boomer Adventure Across 21 Countries to any such reader. I certainly hope that author Marianne C. Bohr will continue with her traveling adventures and will continue writing about them. For those of us who find ourselves a bit landlocked at this time, reading books such as hers just might provide us with a little bit of wind in our sails!
