Destination Thailand by Katy Colins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What if you had a second chance… to find yourself?
Instead of slipping on her something borrowed and tripping up the aisle to wedded bliss, Georgia spends her big day wondering where it all went wrong.
Forced to make a bucket list of her new life goals by best friend Marie, it’s not long before travel-virgin Georgia’s packing her bags for a long-haul trip to Thailand.
Yet, Georgia’s big adventure doesn’t seem to be going to plan. From strange sights, smells and falling for every rookie traveller scam in the book, Georgia has never felt more alone.
But the good thing about falling apart is that you can put yourself back together any way you please. And new Georgia might just be someone she can finally be proud of…
I finally got round to reading this, it has been sat on my shelf for a while, but when I booked a trip to India, I knew I needed to read this series. (India is next so I can't wait!)
This is what I thought would be the perfect mix of chick lit and travel with a bit of humour and a romance. I got all of these things from this book. It begins with Georgia, she is away with a friend, seems like the perfect holiday, however she is mending a broken heart as it is meant to be her wedding day. Her soon to be husband called it off a few weeks ago and its come out that he has been cheating. She decides to create a bucket list and in the spur of the moment decides that she needs to go travelling, it's now or never and now she hasn't got any ties can't think of one reason why she shouldn't go.
Right from the very beginning I enjoyed this book, I seemed to be on the journey with Georgia, booking her tour, flying out to Thailand and soon discovering this was the tour from hell. I loved every minute of it, yes there are a few things that are perhaps a little unrealistic, but I didn't care, I was enjoying the story.
There are many adventures in this story and Georgia meets many different people, she has got a taste for backpacking, which I am thrilled about as I have another 2 books in the series to go. This is a really quick read and if you are looking for something to encourage you to go travelling make sure you pick this up.
I would like to thank the publisher for sending this in exchange for an honest review.
