Outside the comfort zone

Travel writer Karin Esterhammer has published a captivatingly funny travel memoir about a Los Angeles family who moves to Vietnam to ride out the Great Recession, So Happiness to Meet You: Foolishly, Blissfully Stranded in Vietnam. Her work has been published in the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Baltimore Sun and other outlets. Her diary-style article in the Los Angeles Times about the move to Vietnam earned more letters to the editor than almost any other travel story.
