Abstract:

Updated for 2013 with new words and phrases! Sometimes you need a phrasebook that does a lot more than just tell you where the bathroom is. If you're a woman in a country where you don't speak the language, you might need more assistance. What if you want to flirt with that really cute waiter in Paris? What if a strange man hits on you in Venice? Maybe you just want to sleep in a hostel in Madrid without worrying that your bag will get stolen. Alison Owings, solo traveler extraordinaire, presents a handy guidebook to key words and phrases in French, Italian and Spanish. In addition to important, everyday phrases to help with finding hotels, currency exchange, dining out and transportation, you'll also find terms from dating to shopping and political discussions to working out. There's something here for every woman on the go. San Francisco Examiner said: This cheeky, savvy, sexy primer, designed for women but entertaining for all, is not your conventional 'Can I have the check please?' phrasebook. If it were a movie, it would probably get an R rating. And from The New York Times: For women, here are ways to say scram or stay. A phrasebook for women traveling solo or with other women - whether you're looking for a companion or look to get rid of one. Hilarious and helpful, The Wander Woman's Phrasebook belongs in every woman traveler's carry-on.
