To Timbuktu

To Timbuktu: Nine Countries, Two People, One True Story - Casey Scieszka, Steven Weinberg Quite enjoyed this: it was fun seeing these two people abroad and I liked how enthusiastic they were about almost everything (ok, except Timbuktu). There's a lot packed in here, travel, logistics, big life choices, and a whole lot of love, too. They're quite honest about how much they drove each other crazy and how hard it can be to come back and talk to the other person. It's an interesting hybrid book format and maybe even useful to college students interested in what it's like to go life in another country for a while. (Which everyone should do at some point anyway!)
