On the Spanish trail

Women travel writers, even in the West with more mobility and liberal social ambiance, are fewer in number than men. In a list of “Essential Books for the Well-Read Explorer” prepared by Outside (, out of the 25 writers only four are women. In India, the number is even fewer though a new generation of women travel bloggers is emerging. But travelogues by women are still quite rare. In such a milieu, Ranjita Biswas, journalist and author, homemaker and mother to boot, writes a riveting travelogue Notes from a Spanish Diary (Niyogi Books) on her experiences as a solo traveller across Spain. Full of anecdotes of people on the street and food influences, its history and culture, the book is a look at the Iberian country up close.
