    • Have you ever gone to new restaurant, had a good but not superb meal, and then realized your lack of total bliss had as much to do with your taste buds as the quality of the meal? That's how I feel about Travel, Sex, & Train Wrecks by Julie Morey.Admittedly, I read Julie's book primarily because I'm the author of a book on world travel, and I try to keep up with others in my field. The difference between her and me is that I searched for wildlife in rainforests, mountains, and the tundra, an [...]


    • This is a great book about a broken, scared lost women that found herself again threw traveling and challenging here core beliefs. Introspection and having a lot of fun both in and out of the bed. This is a travel memoir not a travel guide. If you want a travel guide pick up a lonely planet book. Read this book if you want to be entertained and laugh out loud, and be taken on a journey along with the author. If you have any bias against drugs, sex outside of marriage or consider yourself conserv [...]


    • About way more than traveling. It's really the story about coming to terms with divorce, a new single you and the sexual awareness that comes from that. I did get some info on great places to visit for trips though!If you want to know more check out my review.


    • I was yelling at the stupidity of the author too many times to count. The writing style gets irritating with the overuse of 'ever'. And the life experience part of the book is highly annoying. The author was married at 23, a virgin, divorced 10 years later, then goes on a 7-month adventure through South-East Asia. During her first week, she has 3 one-night stands. Christian gone wild! I have nothing against a healthy one-night stand once in a while but there was nothing healthy about the alcohol [...]


    • This book is all about the author's spiritual, emotional, and sexual awakening after a divorce that she didn't want. In order to figure out the rest of her life she sets off traveling on her own. Her travels take her to several countries in Southeast Asia where she parties, has sex, and eventually meditates long and hard enough letting God into her life again as she realizes that she is on her way to a better and fuller life.I was impressed with all of the traveling that the author did on her ow [...]


    • Julie Morey’s memoirs offer a beautiful insight into the life of a backpacker and, for once, you gain an insight into what this determined traveller is looking for. When someone leaves everything they know for the unfamiliar world of the backpacker you know they are searching for something. This is an honest account of her experiences as she redefined her opinion of herself and her relationship with both men and God. She covers everything from wetting herself by the side of the road, to kissin [...]


    • Travel narratives are never about just the travel. If a reader desires information about travel destinations, guidebooks and their internet equivalents do a better and much more comprehensive job. What a narrative gives that a guidebook can’t is the personal touch. What did this specific traveler experience and get out of their trip? What were they looking for? What did they actually find? It might be adventure, a better understanding of other cultures, escape (even if temporary), or a better [...]


    • THE REVIEWS ARE IN - HERE IS WHAT BOOK BLOGS ARE SAYING ABOUT TRAVEL SEX & TRAIN WRECKS"It felt more like reading a travel diary than reading a travel novelShe shares the good, the bad, and the crazy. I felt like I was actually there with her while reading this. It is wonderfully written, and it is a fun read." - Book Reviews by Courtney Bauman "Morey's writing voice is informal, helping the reader feel like they're a friend tagging along on her adventuresa fun read that should appeal to fan [...]


    • For starters, this is not your average travel book. It really lives up to its title; that’s for sure. That being said, I thought it was a great book. It isn’t very long, so it is easy to get through. There are entertaining stories lacing each and every page, and it keeps you holding on until the very end. It felt more like read a travel diary than reading a travel novel, and I really liked that. She shares the good, the bad, and the crazy. I felt like I was actually there with her while read [...]


    • This was quite an interesting book. Can't comment or judge too much on it, as this is a really personal topic - this Julie decided to use travel for her therapy or way to find herself, so, it's cool.It reads more like a diary/blog and probably wouldn't be much of a help as a travel guide. Though, I must say, she has now gotten me interested in the place called Pai in Thailand, that monk monastery place where she had her 10-day total silence retreat (I would LOVE to try that) and I'd really like [...]


    • Whether you are a travel enthusiast, looking for a good steamy read, or find yourself suffering through a bad break-up, you will love this book. It was just too easy to be drawn into this story: A woman nearly destroyed by an abusive relationship, feeling that she had hit rock bottom with her divorce, only to find that it was just the beginning of her journey into finding herself, intertwined with descriptions of exotic countries and adventures that will be guaranteed to make you plan a vacation [...]


    • Book matches the person I met Julie in a restaurant in Campbell, CA -- A mutual friend of ours had invited me out to meet her. She's amazingly bright and fun to chat with, very unassuming. It wasn't until the end of dinner that she mentioned she'd written a book. Such an amazing person! While I enjoyed her entire story, her ten days of silence with the monks was particularly meaningful for me. I've traveled many times myself, and I absolutely recommend this to anyone in search of themselves and [...]


    • If you like rollercoasters and pathos in your reading material, this is the story for you. This is the tale of a young woman's adventures while traveling abroad intertwined with the affect of a recent divorce after 10 years of marriage. I found it to be humorous, heart wrenching and sizzling all at the same time. The story draws you in as you experience the highs and lows of learning to live again after a bad break up, all against the backdrop of amazing places, adventures and unique experiences [...]


    • A nice enough but clearly repressed Christian lady takes a fairly conventional backpacking trip including, of course, getting laid a couple of times. I am really happy for her. If a few more mid-westerners went and did the same it would be a safer, happier world for all of us.But what in God's name possessed me to think that I would ever want to read about it.Don't read this book. Phone up a travel agent instead.


    • Julie seems like someone I would love to have as a friend, and this is a great book for anyone contemplating extensive backpack travel. But beyond the backpacking and romance novel sex descriptions, it's lacking. I never really understood or "felt" the failed relationship or subsequent emotional development


    • Amazed that this book got rave reviews on . Glad I got it for free. It was self-published so maybe that could be the reason for the poor editing and horrible grammatical errors, e.g "Even now I look back at Jelger and I's relationship and shake my head." That sentence definitely had ME shaking my head! It also had too much rambling and not enough substance or descriptions of her travels.


    • This is great fun! I relived a little of the year that I spent in Europe back in 1981. Good to know that a backpacker's lifestyle and hostels haven't changed much. Kudos to the author for her bravery and transparency.


    • Parts of this book were good and others were annoying the way the author wrote about her travels and life. I have enjoyed other travel/life books much more.


    • A quirkier version of Eat, Pray, Love. I enjoyed reading it and now want to travel the world, but maybe not out of a backpack!
