Summary

Have you ever wanted to quit your job and go travel the world?

At 25 years old Stephanie Yoder was already fed up with the monotony of 9-5 life. After much agonizing, she quit her stable desk job to backpack around Asia. During a year of travel through Japan, China and South East Asia she became a minor Chinese celebrity, was attacked by giant parrots and met the love of her life. In A Year Without Make-Up, Yoder chronicles some of her craziest adventures along with providing helpful tips and encouragement for others looking to make a life change.

Nothing new

I suppose it would be a nice bit of advice for people setting out of their first trip, but nothing groundbreaking. I did not like the reader, she was way too slow and even pronounced some names of places wrong. That's the type of thing you shouldn't get wrong in a travel book!

Not a lot of info and too short.

Save your money. Travel cheap. Be smart about your safety. Travel light. Vietnam and China have really good food. Beer is cheap in Vietnam. Now you don't have to read the book.

Bought this for My Daughter, the traveler.

What made the experience of listening to A Year Without Make-Up the most enjoyable?

Good Travel tips... Save First and think safety, Walk away if uncomfortable, without apology!! Short, concise, interesting.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Neither, Just good review of a young woman's travels. Good information for all those that travel outside the country.

Any additional comments?

This was my daughters choice of books, but has become good information for me as well. Enjoyed the 2 + hours spent listening in the car.
