Exotic Life: Laughing Rivers, Dancing Drums and Tangled Hearts
Published by Dancing Words Press
winner of the BAIPA Book Award for Best Women's Adventure Memoir
From wanting to push her boyfriend out of a plane over the Andes in Colombia to finding a giant dildo in a toilet tank that followed her friends through Mexico, to dancing wearing only a diamond necklace, this collection of nineteen too-true stories by Lisa Alpine will inspire you to follow the call of a wild life and leave home with your doors unlocked.
Lisa's travels are more than exotic. They are wonderful reading. I have to say this book stayed with me for a long time, and I loved the last three lines about Guadeloupe.
