A Year Without Make Up – A Book Review
What a wonderful Sunday it is today! I woke up full of joy and I remembered that I have to write a review about the traveling book I recently read. So, here it is.
A couple of weeks ago I bumped into Stefanie Yoder‘s book: A Year Without Make Up. At first I was skeptical about buying it, but then it costs only 2€ so why not give it a try? It’s a book about traveling after all, how bad can it be?
Before I say anything else let me introduce you to this well-travelled girl. She’s the person behind the famous travel blog Twenty-something Travel, where she blogs about her adventures all over the world. I love reading it, because it makes me feel like her sidekick while the world is in her fingertips. What is more, her virtual persona is funny and interesting and I love that she shares some parts of her personal life, giving us a sneak peek and a more complete image of who she is.
Now, about the book. In a few words it is enjoyable and easy-to-read. Furthermore, it contains many small chapters, which every one of them describes a new trip. In those pages Stefanie narrates her travels around Asia. She starts by how she decided to take such a huge step and how she managed to collect all the money needed for her dream to come true, while coping with other people’s doubt and fear every time she was announcing her big plans.In addition she introduces us to some unusual stories and people she met while she was wondering around China, Thailand, Japan and Vietnam, trying to picture the culture and the food.
In addition the book comes only in a digital format, thing that I found super smart, because you can download it in your device and read it during the day. What left me bit dissatisfied was the fact that the chapters are too small. They are like shots of stories and after finishing each chapter I was wondering where the rest of it was.
All in all I recommend you to buy it. Especially if you ‘re a travel lover, the genuine story will speak to you and it will maybe give you a boost towards facing the world without fear and full of enthusiasm.
