As a travel industry professional, I’ve watched the world shrink as access has grown. Karen Gershowitz’ lovely travel memoir is a look back at a time when faraway places really were far away, distant cultures were very different, single women travelling alone were an unusual sight, and travelers with open hearts had extraordinary experiences.  Travel Mania made me appreciate current travel opportunities even more.
