No Baggage: A Minimalist Tale of Love and Wandering
No Baggage: A Minimalist Tale of Love and Wanderingby Clara BensenWhile it's not uncommon for couples to meet on a dating website, it's a bit unusual when an early date lasts three weeks and covers eight countries. But after introverted 20-something Clara (who'd only recently recovered from a mental breakdown) and larger-than-life, unconventional professor Jeff met, that's what happened. With only the colorful clothing on their backs (a bottle-green dress for her and cherry-red chinos for him) and no hotel reservations or real plans, they traveled via plane, car, train, ferry, bus, and bike in Turkey, Greece, Hungary, Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, England, and more, before finally heading home to Texas. This engaging, romantic travelogue questions what freedom is and we really need in life, and it thoughtfully deals with mental illness.
