Judith Fein’s book Life is a Trip: The Transformative Magic of Travel
a book review by John Lamkin
Who can ride a funeral boat in Mog Mog, alongside the deceased’s body, hang out in Mexican prison, apprentice with a shaman a la Don Juan, eat camel meat and leave for home from each adventure with a new life transforming experience?
Judith Fein in her new book Life is a Trip does just that and more. On the 14 exotic globetrotting adventures described in this book, Fein shows the reader how to use travel as a way to transform one’s life – how to be a traveler instead of a tourist.
In Life is a Trip Fein goes to Vietnam to get a massage, meets the High Priest of the ancient Israelite Samaritans on a holy mountain, visits a god in Guatemala, and has many more exciting and transformative adventures. She is definitely not your run-of-the-mill travel writer
This entertaining book will fascinate the seasoned, the novice and the armchair traveler.
