Mint Tea to Maori Tattoo is a great read for anyone with wanderlust, anyone who has traveled and anyone who is searching for themself. It eloquently blends travelogue with self-discovery as it charts a young woman's journey for cultural awareness and personal revelation. An altogether inspiring read!

I really enjoyed this unique book and would recommend it to anyone, especially those interested in Africa/Australasia or considering going travelling themselves. Carolina writes with humour and honesty about the journey she made and her lively personality really comes across.

When you start reading this book, you actually start traveling. Carolina's memories and descriptions are very accurate. There are personal moments, landscape descriptions but also a lot of explanations about the places she visited: the people, history, etc. It is really interesting and a good way to learn more about places most of us have never been to. I recommend it !

Sehr unterhaltsam und auch lehrreich um sich über andere Kulturen zu informieren. Die Autorin erzählt sehr persönlich, herzlich und offen über ihre Erfahrungen. Auf englisch aber super auch für all diejenigen die ihr Englisch auffrischen wollen, da es sich leicht lesen lässt.
Für Nachahmer ein muss!

Carolina has a very interesting way of story telling where she managed to pack a lot of factual information about the places she visits into entertaining yet concise stories and as the book and her trip progress I felt her mental shift as she shared the philosophies she was learning through her journey. I have read a lot of travel books in this genre but this is one of the most interesting because of the way the author combines real information, humour and self-help. I also feel this wasn't just entertainment as it has also given me some new things to think about in my own life.

"Mint tea.." also offers a complete story and you can tell the book has been carefully crafted and edited to make it a good read, a lot of travel authors are quite lazy really and just publish a kind of diary/memoir but this is very neatly packaged and I enjoyed the way the writer is looking back so she can add other interesting information she learned after she was home to complete the stories.

All in all I was very pleasantly surprised by this unheard-of book and if Carolina publishes any further travel books I would snap them up! I only give books 5 stars if I would like to read them again and this is definitely one I would read again. Since I finished it yesterday certain phrases and images have sprung up in my thoughts a few times and I will be recommending the book to my friends. What a great book!
