Wanderlust, however, is more than a chronological conquest of men and countries: at its core, it?s a journey of self-discovery. In the course of her travels, Eaves finds herself and the sense of home she?s been lacking since childhood?and she sheds light on a growing culture of young women who have the freedom and inclination to define their own, increasingly global, lifestyles, unfettered by traditional roles and conventions of past generations of women.
Broken into a series of many short essays organized around the author's international travel experiences for over 15 years, with a dual focus on thoughts about home, belonging, and love and thoughts on wanderlust, freedom, and desire, Eaves describes the places and people who captivated her on five continents while, unsurprisingly, leading her to discover who she herself was and wanted to become. Australia, Egypt, and New Guinea feature prominently in her journey, as do lovers of varying degrees of importance. The book may be of more interest to women as a coming of age tale than to hardcore travelers.
