Travel memoir in two voices. Eleven Months, Twelve Countries, Losing Sixty pounds and ONE underwater proposal in Thailand. Dreams do come true.

This memoir begins with the actual emails sent through the online dating service. Barbara KisKis said, "When I read a few pages of your new book, I thought of GRIFFIN & SABINE by Nick Bantock. Can't wait to read your entire book."

Michael Gold remarked: "I bought your book this morning and started reading it at lunch. Terrific reading and great way to catch up on your life since college."

This presentation has the book description, author bios, color photos and information about upcoming events for the FESTIVAL OF THE PACIFIC!

    • 11 Months, 12 Countries, 60 Pounds and ONE Proposal By Lisa Niver Rajna and George Rajna
    • This exuberant and unique travel memoir is written in the voices of the story’s two leading protagonists, George and Lisa, who meet on-line in January 2007. After exchanging emails and dating, the couple travels to Fiji over the summer of 2008 where George reveals his lifelong dream to travel the world for a year and urges Lisa to join him. With much convincing, the duo embarks on a journey that takes them from French Polynesia to New Zealand and Australia. From that point on, the "true" adventure begins as they journey by land across vast portions of Asia covering Indonesia to Mongolia. During these adventures, Lisa shrinks down her waist size while developing her inner courage and belief in herself; George learns to open up his heart to form a team-based relationship that leads to a culminating special proposal. Peppered with humorous characters, tears of joy and disaster, and different realities related to their varied social strata and travel style, George and Lisa meander around Asia seeing the sights, building their relationship and returning triumphant to the United States in love and excited about their imminent wedding. They both took a leap when leaving their jobs, home, cat and cultural clutter, and land together as a team with a new life. Find out more about Lisa and George at We Said Go Travel.
