Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

Eat, Pray, Love - Elizabeth Gilbert This is one of those "right book at the right time" reads for me. I decided to pick it up because it was recommended in Rick Steves' Rome 2013 (we are traveling there next year), but it turned out to be more than a travelogue.This book is about Elizabeth Gilbert figuring out what is most important. She visits Italy, India and Indonesia over the course of a year following a messy divorce. While in Italy, she decides to experience food in new ways; in India, she spends four months in an ashram. In Indonesia, she learns many lessons about love (hence, the title of the book).I found myself enjoying the journey along with Gilbert, in no small part because she experienced many things on her spiritual walk that were helpful to me on my own. Whether it was about savoring a good meal or learning how to be at peace inside rather than living in turmoil, there were profound lessons within the pages.I would recommend this book as far more than a travelogue, but as a work about life and how to experience it more fully.
