Eat, Pray, Love One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India, and Indonesia
Upon moving to the suburbs with her new husband, ready to start a family, author Elizabeth Gilbert realized that, although she had everything, she did not have what she wanted. This book recounts the healing trip that she took following a drawn-out divorce. Gilbert gave up her job and her belongings and dedicated a year to travel. Each destination was chosen to address a part of her being: Italy for pleasure; India for spiritualism; and Indonesia to balance the two. Her first stop, Rome, includes delicious pizza, generous amounts of wine, and new friends. Outside of Mumbai, India, she practices yoga and meditation. In Bali, she studies with a medicine man and--unexpectedly--falls in love.
