Review: Gutsy Women: Travel Tips and Wisdom for the Road

User Review  - Joan - Goodreads

Not too sue where the "gutsy women" come in; these tips are mostly common sense. Maybe it's because the book was written in 1996 and the wisdom in it is much more well-known now than it was then. Still it's a quick read and has some valuable information for the first-time traveler. Read full review
