The inspiring story of a woman's rebirth from an unfulfilled suburbanite to a liberated woman of the world.For years Rita Golden Gelman felt she lived someone else's life. She and her husband had a privileged existence, but she wasn't happy. When she suggests they separate for a couple of weeks, she is at first horrified when he suggests a couple of months, 'so they can be free to see other people'. Then Rita decides to fulfil a long- held dream- to travel the world. Fifteen years later, Rita is still travelling. The inspiring story of a woman's rebirth from an unfulfilled suburbanite to a liberated woman of the world.This is the story of her journey and personal transformation. From her first tentative trip to Mexico, swept off her feet by a Latin lover; to work as a tour guide in The Galapagos Islands; to live in a royal palace in Bali; to New Zealand where she 'adopts' a school full of children, Rita takes us on her many adventures.Spending days in some places, years in others, Rita captures the joys of connecting with people everywhere and celebrates her glorious transformation from an unfulfilled suburbanite to a liberated and incredibly self- assured woman of the world. More than simply a travel memoir, Tales of a Female Nomad is the story of a woman's rebirth.
