  •     I bought two which were gifts for my two best girlfriends. Told them to pick a place and commit! Road trip!
  •     I initially read about this book in a "gift giving guide"...so I thought I'd send it to a long-time friend who is always looking for new (and fun) escapes for her and her friends. She absolutely loved it...and the fact that Amazon.com could ship it directly to her made it all the more easy for me to give her a random smile! [She reports that the book is a lot of fun, too!]
  •     Bought as a gift. Everything came as expected. Satisfied with purchase and happy with transaction. Recommend item for your enjoyment or as gift.
  •     Gave it as a gift.
  •     I bought this for my mom and she's found some really great things to do with her gal pals in it...I think I'll borrow it eventually.
  •     This is an interesting and informative book. If you need a girlfriend's getaway, you are sure to find the perfect place.
  •     We're lovin this one too! So many great ideas! Highly recommend to all who need a "Girlfriends Getaway"!
  •     This book is chock full of wonderful suggestions for time away for bonding with your best girlfriends. When I bought the book, I found that I had already covered about fifteen of the trips with one friend or another, so I can attest to the suggestions' being right on the mark. It's given me some great ideas for future getaways. Marybeth Bond knows what things are important to a group of women who want to eat, drink, tour, shop, and enjoy new and exciting (but safe) places -- and know that these things are often best experienced in the company of your good friends. She also recognizes that sometimes you want to embrace nature, sometimes you want retail therapy, and other times you want to just relax and be pampered. She has suggestions, well researched (she must have had a lot of fun researching this book!), for every preference. Highly recommended!
  •     The books is excellent - a great 'girl friend' gift.However, be careful when ordering it! I ordered 3 copies to be sent from one dealer.
  •     A completely revised, updated edition of a travel book for women whether old or young, single or married, makes for a fine survey of yoga retreats, mountain resorts, gardens, and...
  •     ehh. Barely read it before giving it away.
  •     Will use if I ever travel again
  •     I bought this for my mom and she really got a ton of great ideas from it.
