Feiden, whom she married in and with whom she lived in Manhattan and Sag Harbor, N. She is also survived by a sister, Suzette Lagnado, and two brothers, Ezra and Isaac. Lagnado was a columnist for The Village Voice from to , then executive editor of the English edition of the Jewish-American newspaper The Forward from to She joined The Wall Street Journal in Lagnado was completing a book about Sephardic Jews living in Arab lands.
Lagnado said her most valued possession was a letter she received from a retired Egyptian diplomat, who said he had been moved to tears by her recollections of her past. There was one major difference, though. I was traveling the world for a year with my husband and 1-year-old in tow. Despite these differences, I feel like she and I came to some of the same revelations in that time period. I had been sleepwalking through my own life to some extent. Traveling with my child opened me up to the possibility that what I should be working for was not stuff or status but experiences with the people I love.
Graduates in Wonderland: The International Misadventures of Two Almost Adults is a wonderful book about maintaining connection through changing lives…and enormous amounts of distance. The book is composed of emails — about finding love and adventure and new jobs in strange lands — between two friends located in different spots around the world. Graduates in Wonderland tells the search for meaning, purpose, and connection through the acts of growing up, learning a city, and learning oneself.
It somehow transcends the personal, and tells all of our journeys in finding a place in the world — and finding ourselves, wherever we are. Jessica Voigts, Wandering Educators. This tasty tale shows the importance of tenacity, with Child spending nine years researching writing, and hustling before her famous cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking , was finally published.
As someone who has spent nine years building my blog before beginning to earn a decent income, I can relate.
As I read this book, my wife kept looking over at me and wondering why I was laughing. The author initially hopes the trip will be canceled because it pains her to leave all the comforts behind to live a life of a nomad. Slowly, however, she realizes the benefits of travel in spite of all the discomforts. It made me change the way I see the world.
I admit it.
That would be a shame, though, because this book really is a treat. He also mixes in delectable dessert recipes to tempt readers. How many of these books have you read? Are there any additional travel memoirs we should add to the list? Let us know in the comments below! As the author of her book, "The Travel Mamas' Guide," she teaches parents not only how to survive a trip with children, but also how to love exploring the world with their offspring.
Colleen gives tips on television, radio, and as a public speaker. She lives in Arizona with her husband and two kids. Good list—I will have to look at some of those I have not read! Can I recommend another one? Global Mom by Melissa Dalton-Bradford. Thank you for the suggestion, Michelle! Totally adding it to my Amazon cart right now! Me too! Thank you! I have been looking for books to read poolside.
Since I love to travel, these titles would be especially perfect.

Eat Pray Love is and always will be one of my favorite memoirs. I also think Julia Roberts did a spectacular job in the movie. I thought that Julia Roberts was an odd choice to play the author in the movie, but then she nailed it! Those seem like great places but better writers among them Hemmingway. I have not thought reading about a place was as good but it is a nice way to experience a new place. I love to read travel memoirs that take place in a particular place before or after I travel there to make the journey even better!
I would love to travel more and would love to write about my experiences like this.

I bet these memoirs are very inspiring. It would be so nice to read these and just enjoy their travel stories. I loved FourSeason in Rome! I;ve read a few other of these. You should check out Marteen Troost.
I ve only read one out of this list. I hope to get more and also travel.

Then one day hope that my own travel experience would also be shared through book. Thanks for this list! The interesting part about this blog post is the highlights about each book and how each book may be relevant. Great post.
