Geraldine DeRuiter is the latter. But she won't let that stop her.
Hilarious, irreverent, and heartfelt, All over the Place chronicles the years Geraldine spent traveling the world after getting laid off from a job she loved. Those years taught her a great number of things, though the ability to read a map was not one of them. She has only a vague idea of where Russia is, but she now understands her Russian father better than ever before. She learned that what she thought was her mother's functional insanity was actually an equally incurable condition called "being Italian". She learned what it's like to travel the world with someone you already know and love - how that person can help you make sense of things and make far-off places feel like home. She learned about unemployment and brain tumors, lost luggage and lost opportunities, and just getting lost in countless terminals and cabs and hotel lobbies across the globe. And she learned that sometimes you can find yourself exactly where you need to be - even if you aren't quite sure where you are.

I laughed and cried!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I've actually purchased ten additional print copies for friends, family, and strangers. So yes, I'd recommend this book.
What about Geraldine DeRuiter’s performance did you like?
It is always a treat to hear a book orated by the author.
Any additional comments?
I read Geraldine DeRuiter’s book in one day. I laughed and cried through the first three-quarters of All Over the Place in print and then when I couldn’t delay leaving the house for another minute, I downloaded the Audible version and listened in the car. Both the print and Audible formats are lovely. Geraldine is honest, vulnerable, relatable and hilarious about her less-than-perfect adventures around the globe. You’re going to love it!

Life is messy which adds to the adventure.
I thoroughly enjoyed sharing slices of life through Geraldine's eyes. The bits about her mother are especially hilarious! Through thick and thin, I enjoyed the shenanigans.
