Author Arlene Rains Graberabout this book: There are places to see in the world. Travel along with the author as she winds her way through the globe visiting the known and unknown while encountering the highs and lows of traveling. The book is a chronicle of her first-hand experiences whose adventures are written with lessons learned. Each experience is fashioned into a devotional with the Golden Rule and Bible as its foundation, with a light sometimes funny outcome.

The devotionals of language barriers, exasperating fellow travelers, escapades of mischief, a what to do when guide, planning and the joy of seeing beauty in almost everything are all peppered with a quest for knowledge of the foreign and not so foreign countries.

Excerpt:

"So does your garden look like this?"

"I wish," I replied. We were walking through Giverny, Monet's home and gardens. The stranger to my left had asked the question.

He grinned sheepishly. "Neither does mine."

He walked off and I resumed my own thoughts about the functional garden I was visiting. Giverny, home to Claude Monet, is located about 50 miles northwest of Paris. It spreads over five acres, and has been fully restored from the brutality of war. Today, the gardens and home draw more than 500,000 tourists each year. It is the site for many of Monet's famous paintings like the water color and Japanese bridge series, along with numerous flower paintings. His work here was distinctive in that he created them twice. First he planted the gardens, and then when they grew into lush vistas of color, painted them.

As a travel professional for more than thirty years, the author also gives first-hand accounts of how to pack, security issues, and what happens at the airport when "canceled" blazes over the departure screen.
