Kristin Newman rebelled against buying dresses to wear to her girl friend's weddings. Understandable. She wanted a little more than drinking champagne toasts to others but wasn't ready to take the plunge herself.

So her solution? Travel. A television script writer, she was able to take weeks at a time to indulge her new found avocation. She bought single tickets to off-the-beaten-track places and threw herself wholeheartedly into her adventures. She met diverse people on her wanderings and she shares those experiences with us, her readers.

Romantic, funny, brutally honest, What I was Doing While You Were Breeding by Kristin Newman is the author's take on the world of travel. Alone or with a traveling companion, she discloses her adventures in out-of-the-way destinations. It can be said she gave her whole heart and soul to enjoying the time she had to spend on frivolous living. Nine months of the year she worked hard and long to produce material for That '70s Show, Chuck, How I Met Your Mother as well as The Neighbors.

Leaving her job of creating fun for TV watchers, she created her own fun and discovered places she had only read about. She fell in love with Argentina - and with various male persons who crossed her path. Her only real problem in life was deciding where to go next. And whether, when it was time to head home, she could really leave her last conquest. Read and enjoy and visualize yourself as Newman's traveling partner.
