Self-indulgent or what?
on 1 June 2014
Like many books that I've recently read about travel, this one is really a search for her identity; who is she, what does she really want, where is her life going? Several times I was tempted to give up, her apparent self-indulgence made me cross. Has her extensive travel through some difficult countries really helped? I do hope so.
Where I do agree with her is about the stuffiness and formality of life in Paris. We lived there for 3 years and her descriptions are spot on. But Paris is not France and other regions, such as the Aude in the south-west are really friendly.
