Publisher's Summary

Spanning 15 years of travel, beginning when she is a sophomore in college, Wanderlust documents Elisabeth Eaves’ insatiable hunger for the rush of the unfamiliar and the experience of encountering new people and cultures. Young and independent, she crisscrosses five continents and chases the exotic, both in culture and in romance. In the jungles of Papua New Guinea, she loses herself - literally - to an Australian tour guide; in Cairo, she reconnects with her high school sweetheart, only to discover the beginning of a pattern that will characterize her life over the long-term: while long-distance relationships work well for her, traditional relationships do not.
Wanderlust, however, is more than a chronological conquest of men and countries: at its core, it’s a journey of self-discovery. In the course of her travels, Eaves finds herself and the sense of home she’s been lacking since childhoodand she sheds light on a growing culture of young women who have the freedom and inclination to define their own, increasingly global, lifestyles, unfettered by traditional roles and conventions of past generations of women.

Travel for Love and Love of Travel

Elizabeth Eaves takes you all over the world in this very personal account of her love affair with travel. We see the world through her eyes, but we also see the phenomenon of who we become when we explore a new place alone.

"I traveled for love, and loved to travel, making it hard to disentangle cause from effect." Eaves's motivation is often love, or lust, and really, there is no "right" way to take a personal journey. She fell in love with who she became when she travelled, and the fulfillment she gained from her affairs along the way.

Unguarded and truthful, this audiobook helps reveal the siren's song of travel that's been calling all along. I'm ready to ditch my attachments and set out to find the world.

Amazing... Emotional

This is my first review ever and I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks.
Thank you for such a wonderfully written book on traveling! Although I have not traveled abroad, it is my absolute dream and I plan to make it come true. Although I am 37 years old it still spoke to me. I actually cried when it was over!! The narrator was also a perfect match. Will definitely read again. Please write more books!! 😀
