What's a wise, witty travel writer to do when she reaches forty and is still single? Wander the globe searching for romance and adventure, of course. On a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, to celebrate her fortieth birthday, Laura Fraser confronts the unique trajectory of her life. Divorced and childless in her thirties, she found solace in the wanderlust that had always directed her heart—and found love and comfort in the arms of a dashing Frenchman. Their Italian affair brought her back to herself—but now she wonders if her passion for travel (and for short-lived romantic rendezvous) has deprived her of what she secretly wants most from life: a husband, a family, a home. When her Parisian lover meets her in Oaxaca and gives her news that he’s found someone new, Laura is stunned and hurt. Now, it seems, she has nothing but her own independence for company—and, at forty, a lot more wrinkles on her face and fewer years of fertility. How is Laura going to reconcile what seem to be two opposite desires: for adventure, travel, great food, and new experiences, but also a place to call home—and a loving pair of arms to greet her there? And so, she globe hops. What else is a travel writer to do? From Argentina to Peru, Naples to Paris, she basks in the glow of new cultures and local delicacies, always on the lookout for the “one” who might become a lifelong companion. But when a terrible incident occurs while she’s on assignment in the South Pacific, Laura suddenly finds herself more aware of her vulnerability and becomes afraid of traveling. It seems as if she might lose the very thing that has given her so much pleasure in her life, not to mention the career she has built for herself as a world traveler and chronicler of far-flung places. Finding herself again will be both more difficult and more natural than she imagined. Ultimately, Laura realizes the most important journey she must take is an internal one. And the tale of how she reaches that place will captivate every woman who has ever yearned for a different life.

They found love cruising to exotic destinations Finding a way to be together would turn their world upside down. When Tanya accepts a job on the Regal Princess cruise ship touring the Caribbean, she looks forward to travel, adventure, inspiration, sunshine, and just maybe, some lighthearted romance. Little does she imagine that fate will intervene, bringing her together with Josef, the ship's sexy pastry chef, with whom she falls deeply in love. But while the pair enjoys an idyllic romance aboard the very ship where scenes from The Love Boat were filmed and on the shores of various exciting ports of call-Aruba, St. Thomas, Acapulco, Puerto Rico, and more-the reality of their circumstances looms: Tanya's home is in British Columbia. Josef hails from a village in the Austrian Alps. What will they do when their contracts end? In All Over the Map: Two Lovers, Six Continents, and a Date with Destiny, Tanya takes readers along on the exhilarating journey as she and the man of her dreams struggle to maintain their bond beyond the fantasy world of the cruise ship. Back in their respective homes and oceans apart, their ardent quest to be together is thwarted time and again by circumstances beyond their control: tragic accidents, denied immigration visas, misunderstandings both heartbreaking and hilarious.

Brimming with suspense, lust, longing, and the magic of travel, All Over the Map is a poignant reminder that-even more than romance-compromise, sacrifice, and patience are the keys to everlasting love.

Wie Geografie Geschichte macht Weltpolitik ist auch Geopolitik. Alle Regierungen, alle Staatschefs unterliegen den Zwängen der Geographie. Berge und Ebenen, Flüsse, Meere, Wüsten setzen ihrem Entscheidungsspielraum Grenzen. Um Geschichte und Politik zu verstehen, muss man selbstverständlich die Menschen, die Ideen, die Einstellungen kennen. Aber wenn man die Geographie nicht mit einbezieht, bekommt man kein vollständiges Bild. Zum Beispiel Russland: Von den Moskauer Großfürsten über Iwan den Schrecklichen, Peter den Großen und Stalin bis hin zu Wladimir Putin sah sich jeder russische Staatschef denselben geostrategischen Problemen ausgesetzt, egal ob im Zarismus, im Kommunismus oder im kapitalistischen Nepotismus. Die meisten Häfen frieren immer noch ein halbes Jahr zu. Nicht gut für die Marine. Die nordeuropäische Tiefebene von der Nordsee bis zum Ural ist immer noch flach. Jeder kann durchmarschieren. Russland, China, die USA, Europa, Afrika, Lateinamerika, der Nahe Osten, Indien und Pakistan, Japan und Korea, die Arktis und Grönland: In zehn Kapiteln zeigt Tim Marshall, wie die Geographie die Weltpolitik beeinflusst und beeinflusst hat.
