This is a travel journal of the artist's honeymoon in France in September of 2005. It's a delightfully quirky book in which she compares travel and love: "Anticipation. In love and travel, getting there is half the fun. The lustful impatience, the passionate daydreams, the nerve-wracking waiting . . . lovers and travelers are all alike when they find themselves on the brink of a new adventure." page 2.
The book is filled with her wonderful illustrations of her trip and lots of fun information. For example: "The beagle rolling in the grass, celebrating being a lucky dog who lives in Paris, is named Benedict. 'Oh, yes, he is a happy dog,' his owner tells me; "Not very intelligent, but very, very happy.' Travel Tip: Ask Parisians about their dogs -- it's the only time they will gladly talk to you."
And in chapter 5, "The Going Gets Tough," she includes a number of "Survival tips for love and travel," including this one on page 113: "Each morning, look at yourself in the mirror and say: 'You're no bargain either.'"
I rate this book 5 out of 5.
