Adventures of 2 Girls
- About the Authors
Adventures of 2 Girls traces the journey of two best friends who take a 9-month break from their successful careers to tick a big, fat item off their Bucket Lists: To travel the world and write a book.
Ning is an award-winning professional female magician, and Pam an award-winning journalist and radio DJ. At the peak of their careers, they break loose from the safe and familiar, stuff their backpacks with bare essentials, and buy two one-way tickets to Honolulu.
From a road trip across the United States to spending a summer in Paris studying French and being certified in the art of patisserie at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu, from roughing it out in wild Madagascar (with no electricity, running water or toilets!) to trekking in the Himalayas, Pam and Ning go in search of new experiences and ultimate adventures off the beaten track.
If you think this is a guidebook for girls, or an offshoot of Eat, Pray, Love … think again! Adventures of 2 Girls boasts action-packed accounts of sticky situations faced by two city girls in foreign lands, travel tips about budgeting, finances, insurance, PMS survival etc., plus quirky observations, and quiet ruminations on lazy afternoons … complete with private photos from their compact cameras and iPhones, and sketches from their travel journals.
It’s a heart-warming, humorous and inspiring story about friendship, chasing dreams, taking risks, and letting go.
