I just recently finished reading the much lauded Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I fell in love with the book fro the beginning when Liz was traveling through Italy.
In this fantastic book, Liz leaves a hollow marriage to travel through three different countries and find herself. She leaves behind her life in America for a year and goes through Italy, India and Bali(Indonesia) to figure out who she is and what she really wants from life.
I cannot recommend Eat, Pray, Love enough. If you want a truly great read, this is the book for you.
