Ticket for one: One woman’s transformative, inspirational and humorous trek through Greece, Turkey and Italy (English Edition) Kindle版
With nothing left to lose, she had set off into the unknown with no itinerary, no experience, and a hastily filled backpack. After losing access to her money on her first day, being poisoned on her second day, and finding herself sleeping on a beach next to travellers on the run from organised crime, her adventure takes her on an hilarious tour through the underworld of backpacking.
This is a story about transformation from helplessness to power, hopelessness to faith, and anguish to joy. Set against the backdrop of breathtaking Mediterranean islands, vibrant Rome, enchanting Tuscany, and captivating Turkey, Bronté connects with the beauty of nature to restore her shattered heart and confidence.
But how will she be able to go back to normal life after this journey? Should she stay in the arms of her belly dancing boyfriend? And is the amount of Byzantine icons in a city a good indication of whether she should settle there?
“I listened, I let myself go where my heart took me and it never took me ‘back home’. It took me to a new one.”
“From the dark, gaping hole of plans that had fallen through, and a life that had never worked out the way I wanted it to, I had trodden step by step, carrying nothing with me except what was required, and staying constantly in the present. Somehow I had moved forward just by being, just by continuing to look at the sky, by talking to people around me, and by being out on the road each minute, each hour, each day. Although I had wanted to stay still, crying on a beach waiting for someone to rescue me, I had found that moving into the unknown was possible and in the long term, truly fulfilling.”
A compelling and candid story. An odyssey of self-discovery that fundamentally questions how to live and find happiness.

“It felt strange to be building a life again, starting only with desire and a blank canvas. The possibility of creating, choosing a life for myself that consisted only of the pieces that I really wanted in it, had never occurred to me. Was I even allowed?”
I enjoyed taking my time over this book, the travel descriptions had me checking out maps and photos of each amazing place, the personal descriptions had me marvelling at Bronte’s inner strength, the kindness of strangers, and the forged bonds of friendship across cultures.
