Wanderlust and Lipstick: The Essential Guide for Women Travelling Solo, second edition, by Beth Whitman, Dispatch Travels, 235 pages, Trade Paperback, $15.95

Nervous about hitting the wide open road on your own? Have no fear, Beth Whitman, author of Wanderlust and Lipstick: The Essential Guide for Women Traveling Solo takes some of the unknown out of going it alone.

A world class adventurer, Whitman has traversed Central and South America on motorcycle, circled India, and more before launching her own Wanderlust and Lipstick informative travel guide series and travel company, Wander Tours.

Whitman shows off her guiding and packing skills in her Wanderlust and Lipstick guides. It is truly amazing how her thin books are while being so concise and informative. She thinks of everything eliminating every question any newbie to well-worn traveling woman might have. Got a question about home exchange programs? Need to know what to do before you wander off into the world? Want to know how you should pay for things – credit cards or traveler’s checks – and translating the price of an item? Want to know how to figure out cultural customs and laws while journeying through distant lands? Whitman is you gal with the answers, but she isn’t alone in the book.

Along with her own heroine stories from fending off a male motorcyclist flasher in Vietnam, other solo girl travelers chime in with their own gallivanting experiences and stories.
