A funny and risqué travel memoir which chronicles a young woman's exodus from a small town in Washington State to Southern Spain on an intrepid cross-country drive with a friend, where adventure awaits around every corner. Kate is lost. She is sick of her job and bored with her life. When she discovers her best friend, Miette, is struggling in her young marriage, they decide to take a road trip across the country to reignite their sparks for life. Whether it is flirting with handsome men in Las Vegas or seeing the devil in New Orleans, they have the best time. But it is only when Kate reaches an unexpected sunny destination that she finds what she is looking for: her passion and her home. Fans of Eat, Pray, Love and On the Road will delight in this hilarious tale of a young woman who takes to the road to find herself.
Kate Vredevoogd grew up under the looming conifers of the Pacific Rainforest with her loving parents and her many animal friends. She started photography in Bellingham, Washington at fifteen years old when she was given her first film camera, and she started writing long before that, shortly after learning the alphabet. These two things are the glue that holds the pieces of her together. She was born in Washington State, but after catching the travel bug she went on an epic road trip across the United States, which eventually led her to a flight to Spain, where she would spend the next portion of her life. She lived in Granada for six years and dedicated her time to perfecting her craft as a lifestyle and travel photographer and writing her first book, From the Same Quiver, which was published in December 2019. She currently lives in Málaga, where she teaches English and curates Wanderlust Words Blog and Publications.
