While we were quiet on the publishing front, the Christian Science Monitor ran a seven-part series on the boom in career breaks and families traveling long-term—a boom inspired, writer Eilene Zimmerman contends, by Elizabeth Gilbert’s omnipotent memoir, Eat, Pray, Love.

Whatever the inspiration behind the rush, one takeaway seems clear: Long-term travel is moving towards the mainstream. Cheers to that.
