Without Reservations by Alice Steinbach


I loved reading this book. Alice Steinbach, a Pulitzer Prize inning journalist, takes off to explore Paris, London, Oxford, and Italy for 9 months in the late 1990’s.  This was before cell phones and mobile computing.  Her kids were grown and all was well with her lilfe, but she had the dream to leave behind routine life and discover what it was like to leave behind routine life and discover her identity away from her job and family.  She also wanted to live and experience these places not just as a tourist.  I have been to a few of the places she visited and pictured myself doing something like that… hmmmm?  It was so well written and a joy to turn each page.
