Around the World in 80 Dates

Around the World in 80 Dates
By Jennifer Cox

Outer back cover:  They say there’s someone for everyone. But what if “The One lives in Winnipeg rather than Wimbledon? Or Port Stanley instead of Livingstone? Or even in Eden… New South Wales? How far would you go to find them? Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco?
As a seasoned travel writer and broadcaster, Jennifer has embarked on plenty of epic adventures before and explored some of the world’s most remote regions. She’s bonded with people the world over – but she can’t, for the life of her, seem to find a soul mate in London. She’s tried every dating technique known to womankind, all to no avail. And so she decides to set out on the trip of a lifetime, dating her way around the globe to find the man of her dreams.
And date them she does: from the Skate Date in Paris to the High Roller in Vegas, from the Love Professor in Sweden and the Dead Date in Italy to the Penguin Ranger in Australia. But just as she crosses the international dateline one more time, juggling doubts and excess baggage, the impossible happens – has she finally met Mr Right?

A book about travel AND men? Does it get any better than that?

Jennifer Cox is really funny, I really enjoyed reading her book, it’s a really funny concept and the fact that she really did it is amazing. The dates she goes on is amazing and it would be fun to do something like that, but it’s something you need to have the right contacts and mindset for.

It was interesting to see if she would succeed on her journey to find a soul mate, especially as she only spent a few hours with each person. But that’s the thing I guess, women know almost straight away if someone is “The One” if they just think about it and don’t fall for the first man that shows them some affection.

I think this book was really good, and I would recommend it to all my female friends.
