1. The author divides the book into 109 chapters. She does this because the japa mala, a string of beads used by Hindus and Buddhists in meditation, has 109 beads. Does this structure for the book work? Did it have an effect on your reading of the book?

2. How does the author decide where to travel during her year of self discovery? What is she hoping to accomplish or experience in each country?

3. Although the author describes many difficult personal experiences, she often uses humor in describing these situations and many other events in the book. What role does humor play in the book?

4. The author encounters many interesting people on her journeys. Did one of these people stand out to you as particularly noteworthy? How did the people Gilbert met help her to discover herself?

5. Do you think, in the end, that the author has found what she was looking for during her year in Italy, India, and Indonesia? What has she learned?
