American journalist Alice Steinbach took a year off to live in five cities - Paris, Venice, Milan, London and Oxford - when she realized she had entered a new phase of life. Her sons had graduated from college; she had been divorced for a long time; she was a successful journalist. While there was nothing really wrong with her life, she felt restless. Could she live independently of her family, her friends, her career? Steinbach searches for the answer to this provocative question firstly in Paris, where she finds a soul mate in a Japanese man; in Milan, where she befriends a young woman about to marry, and in the evocative cities of Oxford and Venice. Her trip is peppered with accounts of the exotic strangers she meets, her reflections on life and the observational postcards she wrote to herself during her year away.

Women experience and portray travel differently: Gender matters - irreducibly and complexly. Building on recent scholarship in women’s travel writing, these provocative essays not only affirm the impact of gender, but also cast women’s journeys against coordinates such as race, class, culture, religion, economics, politics, and history. The book’s scope is unique: Women travelers extend in time from Victorian memsahibs to contemporary «road girls», and topics range from Anna Leonowens’s slanted portrayal of Siam - later popularized in the movie, The King and I, to current feminist «descripting» of the male-road-buddy genre. The extensive array of writers examined includes Nancy Prince, Frances Trollope, Cameron Tuttle, Lady Mary Montagu, Catherine Oddie, Kate Karko, Frances Calderón de la Barca, Rosamond Lawrence, Zilpha Elaw, Alexandra David-Néel, Amelia Edwards, Erica Lopez, Paule Marshall, Bharati Mukherjee, and Marilynne Robinson.

The book offers an investigation into travel narratives and the gendered dynamics of journalism and travel in the German-speaking countries during the Weimar Republic (1919-1933). The individual contributions of women writers and journalists and their cumulative output reshaped the genre of travel writing by focusing on women’s lives in different parts of the globe. They also altered journalism in terms of readership, ethics, gendered voice, and publishing. Four fascinating travel texts written by women are introduced and analized. Gender, class, ethnicity, race, work, professionalism, journalism, and cultural places are major themes. What powers moved these women around the globe? Where did these women journalists and writers go? By what means? What have they seen and described in their travel reports? How their texts reflect circulating now and then theories? How were their travels related to the rising nationalism in Germany of the Weimar period? How do they speak to us today? The author Svoboda Dimitrova-Moeck raises these and many other questions in this book.
