Publisher's Summary

Lucetta Zaytoun's ability to bounce back from tragedy time and time again is uncanny. After raising six kids, yet another life earthquake hit. This one led her to put everything she owned in storage, sell her car, shut down her phone and travel in developing countries by herself for one year. Lucetta's precarious, intrepid and fascinating runaway journey took her to places she never imagined. Without intending to, at age 51, she jumped off the world's highest bungee bridge, was French-kissed by a giraffe, fell in love with Africa, was abducted, ate a tarantula in Cambodia, and ultimately found herself. While on her courageous journey, every bit of Lucetta's past showed up to haunt and heal her, helping her make peace with her life and reclaim her authentic identity.

What a thrill ! (Probably best as an audio book)

What a thrill! This book is a 3-for-1 as Lucetta takes you on tour through Central America and Africa as a volunteer, teachers you about cultural differences, and forms this personal bond between herself and you, the listener/reader, as she tells her story of the journey to self-empowerment. I couldn't stop listening; too curious about what would happen next, experiencing much of the commotion and emotion with her. Well done! I feel like I know her, and she has a fan in me.

Memoir Depicts Empowerment Through Travel

This book transported me to places I've never been and will probably never go. I enjoyed reading about the author's experiences in Costa Rica, Africa, and Asia. However, I couldn't help wondering how long this could go on and thinking she might never find herself. Would she travel the world, forever searching for her life's meaning? The end of the book when she landed in Hawaii was a relief.

I would like to have known more. After landing in Hawaii and meeting her daughter, did she immediately return to the states or travel some more? All I know from the post-book narrative is that she's a life coach in Rawleigh, North Carolina, but how did she get to that point in her life after landing in Hawaii?

Otherwise, I loved the way Lucetta Zaytoun narrated her book, making me laugh one minute and angry the next. I was right there with her through all her experiences, though still in the comfort of my recliner. I recommend this book to people in the mood to do some armchair traveling and soul searching of their own.
