Female baby boomers are not going quietly over the hillthey are roaring along the roads, waterways, and paths with style and humor! Each chapter of Best Girlfriends Getaways Worldwide 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, and spent the night at a French chateau. Each concludes with a targeted how-to section featuring websites and contact information to help you set off on you own adventures.
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.
