Around The World In 80 Dates

Formats & editions

The fabulously entertaining story of one woman's global dating tour in her search for the man of her dreams.

How do you mend a broken heart? People say that time is a great healer, but for Jennifer Cox it's travel. However, getting sick of travelling to mend her broken heart - and sick of having a broken heart in the first place - Jennifer decided that if travelling helped her recover from not finding Mr Right, then maybe she could actually travel to find him? After all, when travelling she'd always been more successful in love. And so begins the hilariously entertaining tale of a global dating tour - around the world in 80 dates - how could she not find the man of her dreams? From the UK to Thailand, India to Australia, and many countries in between, Jennifer set up dates - with the bachelors of Batchelor, the speed daters of New York, the most sought-after man in Rome and many, many more. But would her trip change her? Would she be willing - or able - to fit back into her old workaholic life on her return? In fact, would she even return at all, having found her Mr Right, wherever that might be? Only time, travel and her 80 dates would tell!
