I Am the Ocean

Where is there left to go when you've spent your life running away? Faced with no job prospects and no plans looming on the horizon, Samita Sarkar decides to spend her savings investing on herself; namely, on travel experiences. Having spent her whole life doing what was expected of her, Samita decided to fill her empty journal pages with unique life changing moments of her own choosing. Leaving behind the familiarity of Canada she decides to go down the east coast and see the American sights. Living on a shoe string budget she chronicles her experiences meeting strangers, couch surfing, and seeing the sights. Armed with only a handful of clothes, her blank journal, and a worn out copy of "The Bhagavad Gita," Samita discovers the joys of writing one's own path. This memoir reads as a giant journal entry with lots of retrospective comments added in for good measure. There are also lots of great quotations from "The Bhagavad Gita" that correlate to her experiences on the road. Samita's journey is an aspiring look at what you can do if you let go and write your own story; even on the most meager budget it can be a fruitful life changing experience.

I received this book for free from the author in return for my honest, unbiased review.
