"Tell me," poet Mary Oliver once wrote, "what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" Oliver's quote opens the The Best Women's Travel Writing, Volume 10: True Stories from Around the World. And to answer the question, thirty celebrated and emerging writers invite you to ride shotgun as they travel the globe to discover new places, people, and facets of themselves. The essays are as diverse as the destinations, the common thread being fresh, compelling storytelling that will make you laugh, weep, wish you were there, or thank your lucky stars you weren't. The Best Women's Travel Writing speaks to the reasons why we travel--and how travel changes our lives. In The Best Women's Travel Writing, Volume 10: True Stories from Around the World, you'll: Study the ancient art of belly dancing in Egypt Go day-drinking with a sea captain in Croatia Scuba dive through an underground cave in Mexico Run from massive exploding balloons in Burma Embed with the military in Afghanistan Experience a different kind of time in Argentina Go dogsledding in Finland Confront heartache, pain, and a deadly creature in Indonesia Negotiate with smugglers in Mongolia Marry a stranger at Burning Man ...and much, much more.

I loved this book!. Not every single travel adventure resonated with me but since I can't travel anymore it did let me travel vicariously. We need more of these travel accounts by women!!!

Sadly, I didn't find this volume as good as earlier ones. A few of the stories were quite enjoyable, or at least a learning experience. But most were not interesting to me. I found myself skimming more tales than reading them through and through.
