Description - Elsewhere: One Woman, One Rucksack, One Lifetime of Travel by Rosita Boland
Exhilarating, brave and full of wonder, Elsewhere is the story of a life lived in search of meaning. It will make you want to rush out to explore the world, to savour every moment and to hold close the people you love.
'Utterly engaging.' - Sunday Times
From her first life-changing solo trip to Australia as a young graduate, Rosita Boland was enthralled by travel. In the last thirty years she has visited some of the most remote parts of the globe carrying little more than a battered rucksack and a diary.
Documenting nine journeys from nine different moments in her life, Elsewhere reveals how exploring the world - and those we meet along the way - can dramatically shape the course of a person's life. From death-defying bus journeys through Pakistan to witnessing the majestic icescapes of Antarctica to putting herself back together in Bali, Rosita experiences moments of profound joy and endures deep personal loss.
In a series of jaw-dropping, illuminating and sometimes heart-breaking essays, Elsewhere is a book that celebrates the life well-travelled in all its messy and wondrous glory.
