Eat, Pray, Love

Elizabeth Gilbert


Why Eat, Pray, Love and Mount Kosciuszko

There is not a direct link between Eat, Pray, Love and Australia. I had hoped to recommend this book when I went to Bali, as Indonesia was one of the places Gilbert went during her year of discovery, but I ended up having to detour away from Bali. However, Eat, Pray, Love is a must recommendation as it was an inspiration for me to take my own year of discovery in my own way.
