Women's travel is a thriving niche, as our first book by travel expert Marybeth Bond amply showed. To continue serving that eager market of traveling women, National Geographic presents Best Girlfriends Getaways Worldwide.

Each chapter takes off with stories of women who traveled with girlfriends to celebrate, grow, challenge themselves, or simply enjoy every moment to its fullest. They ran marathons to support favorite causes, cycled through Ireland, volunteered in Montana, overnighted at a French chateau. One woman recounts how she broke through her culinary comfort zone, telling behind-the-scenes stories of a weeklong cooking class in Tuscany. An altruistic adventurer describes her life-affirming volunteer vacation with a close friend, delivering books to schools in rural Nepal. The information-packed chapters suggest once-in-a-lifetime exotic escapes, trips to the world's best cities, cultural hot spots, places to learn and stretch your mind, canal and river trips, and great culinary getaways. Each concludes with a targeted how-to section featuring websites and contact information to help readers set off on their own adventures.

Female baby boomers are not going quietly over the hill--they are roaring along the roads, waterways, and paths with style and humor. This is the book to guide them.

You will be dreaming of new ways to get away from it all after flipping through this book. The author, an experienced traveler, has arranged it by topics of interest such as "walking" "volunteering" and "cooking" (some of my favorites). Each topic includes several locals abroad where these interests can be indulged with your best girlfriends. Often there are real life stories from women who have been there, and sidebars with helpful travel tips. Contact information for the destinations mentioned are included as well. An index and a list of helpful resources in the back round out the usefulness of this little guide. It's so much fun to browse through it and imagine the trips you could plan--time and money permitting. Definitely pick this one up if you are in the planning stages of a getaway--it will give you some great ideas.
