"Smart, sexy, inspiring! Whether she's deconstructing Cuban politics, finding meaning in a Brazilian bikini wax, or succumbing to the pleasures of a Tehran security pat-down, Holly lives and writes like a brainy bad girl."
- Cameron Tuttle, author of The Bad Girl's Guide to the Open Road

In Adventure Divas: Searching the Globe for Women Who are Changing the World Holly Morris ditches desk life and sets out to prove that adventure is not just a vacation style but a philosophy of living — and to find like-minded, risk-taking women around the globe. With modest backing and a whole lot of chutzpah, Morris tracks down artists, activists, and politicos — women of action who change the rules, and sometimes the world around them.

In this pilgrimage fueled by curiosity, ideology, and full-on estrogen power, Morris has paved the way for each of us to set out to explore the world. Buy the book on Amazon.com

“Ever insightful and unpretentiously brilliant...a literary gem that takes many steps beyond the labels ‘travel writing’ and ‘memoir.’” - Free Lance-Star
