Publisher's Summary

Sometimes exploring places and meeting people outside your familiar world can reveal who you are or where you're from - perhaps even more clearly than looking in a mirror. We recommend it! Most likely, you will eventually harden to the retort, "Why are you going there?" After a lifetime of exploring on her own terms, author Tina Marie L. Lamb calls this delightful collection of stories her midlife crisis. And she's determined to pull you along with her.

Embark with Tina Marie from the peacefulness of an overnight in a South Carolina tree house (albeit with spiders and snakes) to being held captive on the Ganges River by a boatman haggling for extra Rupees before he'll navigate her ashore. Or, accompany Tina Marie as she wrestles a halibut off the Alaskan coast, wears bruises like medals after a stint on a dog sled team, and ventures into narrow cave tunnels where a single wave could scatter hundreds of bats. And just keep still as she tries to avoid buying a cow at a cattle auction. Perhaps in an unconscious effort to justify her life, Tina Marie shares this eclectic mix of stories that have become deeply imbedded in her. With dry wit and deep insight, you'll be alternately entertained and pleasantly jolted by her perceptions.

Tina Marie swears there is not much to tell about her. But these stories will likely tell you more about Tina Marie than she intended. She's clear about her intent: "How fortunate I am to live in a time and place where an ordinary person like me can act on her wanderlust! I'm not looking for someplace better. I'm just looking."

...the world is just

waiting for you to

come dance.

A hoot for tattoo

First I have to say that I received this book in exchange for an honest review. I love travel writing but a lot of the time it can sound...rehearsed. Tatoo: Journeys on my mind is just the opposite. I loved how the story jumped from place to place and that the author was reading her own work. It gave an authentic feel to the whole thing. On top of that she is witty, fun to listen to, and has a great cadence to her voice. I particularly liked the sections about India and Alaska. The only problems I had were that the transitioning sounds at the chapters were very loud and there was some background noise at time. Overall this was a highly enjoyable listen and I will definitely listen to it again.

What a Fun Mid-Life Crisis

Tatoo: Journeys on My Mind was a fun and enlightening listen. I enjoyed hearing about Tina Marie's journeys, and it was even narrated by her as well. If this was a mid-life crisis, it was an adventurous one. It would be a blast to travel and visit these awesome places during life's prime. I did cringe a little at the ear cleaning in Viet Nam.

I liked the music in between the chapters. It was folksy and pleasant. I also liked that she narrated her own book. She had a nice voice and she told her own story. The audio quality wasn't perfect, there were a few highs and lows but it didn't take away from this being a nice listen. I still think it was worthy of five stars straight across.
