Author(s): Rachel Weiss
Two girls who 'just wanna have fun', hit the open road in a quest to discover the perfect 'solo gal' holiday. Warm, engaging, and bloody funny, this is also an armchair traveller's guide to finding happiness in a couples' world. Rach and Jules, two thirty-something singles, hit the road in search of the perfect solo girl holiday and the secret to eternal happiness. A picaresque tale of the very best kind, Are We There Yet? is part travelogue, part road-trip and for the most part a bloody funny, warm and engaging look at life as a single girl in a world geared towards coupledom. When they're not falling off their bikes in an effort to tone their bums (and impress the sexy, if not-so-bright, fitness leader), diss'ing divorcees over the ninth bottle of chardy in the Hunter, or being pummelled in the Ginseng Korean Bathhouse, Rach and Jules are on a quest for truth, honesty and the perfect pub pash, contemplating along the way the really big questions in life, like: What does a single girl do for sex these days? Is there such a thing as a meaningful internet date? What happens when your best single friend has the nerve to fall in love? How do you leave a 'swingles' party with your dignity still intact? And, is it OK to say 'What the heck, I'd rather curl up with my cat and a good book'? Whether you're single now, have been single in the past, or very possibly might be single in the future, this is the book for you. First published January 2005.
