A Pink Suitcase: 22 Tales of Women’s Travel

A Pink Suitcase: 22 Tales of Women's TravelThe recipe is simple — take 22 adventurous women, drop them into fascinating destinations around the globe and add exceptional storytelling. The result is a compelling new women’s travel anthology called A Pink Suitcase: 22 Tales of Women’s Travel.

A Pink Suitcase brings together a talented group of daring women as they journey on adventures as unforgettable as they are moving. These intrepid explorers take on the world with wide eyes, an open heart and a woman’s point of view.

Their stories are as diverse as the destinations they visit, from sailing the South Pacific to hiking the Appalachian Trail and searching for roots in rural China. Along the way, many uncover their own hidden strength when confronting difficulty and danger. Several take up the challenge of trying something new because they can – and do! – reveling in the joy of accomplishment and fresh discoveries. Still others find healing in travel, a soothing balm when nothing else seems to help.

They travel as mothers, sisters, wives, daughters, friends and lovers. Sometimes they travel alone, whether by choice or circumstance, forming deep connections with those who cross their paths. They find that curiosity, courage and sometimes even a sense of humor can create an experience that is not only unforgettable, but transforming.
