by Elizabeth Gilbert
In this book Elizabeth Gilbert tells a true story about finding herself. After a difficult divorce, she decides to take a year off from everything: her life, her work, her ex-husband and her boyfriend. She just wanted some time only for herself. Time to do what she always wanted to do but didn’t for one reason or another. She travels to three countries: Italy, to learn Italian, enjoy good food and the simple pleasure of doing nothing at all. Next on to India, to spend 3 month in her guru ashram learning to calm down her mind and heal her soul. Then off to Bali, where she finds balance and true love.
I had an on again off again relationship with this book. At first I wasn’t very impressed, yet by the time I finished the book I could honestly say it was worth the read.
