To Lands Featured in Bestselling Book and Movie

BOULDER, CO, August 4, 2010 -- Fans of Elizabeth Gilbert’s bestselling book Eat, Pray, Love can embark on their own quest for worldly pleasure, spiritual enlightenment and meaning in life by traveling to India and Indonesia, two of the three lands featured in Gilbert’s candid memoir of self-discovery.

Asia Transpacific Journeys (, a luxury Asia tour operator specializing in travel to Asia, are experts on everything from ashrams to art in both India and Bali, where they have been organizing travel for individuals on their own journeys of discovery for nearly 25 years.

The book, which is scheduled to emerge as a movie starring Julia Roberts this summer, paints shimmering pictures that stay with the reader. India is intense and chaotic, yet deeply absorbing, and, for Gilbert, life-changing. One of the world’s most ancient cultures, it indeed seems to possess a special wisdom that Gilbert is not alone in seeking.

Bali is altogether different, a soft-spoken, gentle, lush, green and tranquil island of great natural beauty. It was in Bali that love came the author’s way, and whether romance lies in store or not, the island casts a spell on all visitors with its quiet spirituality.

Asia Transpacific Journeys offers a 16-day journey featuring travel to India, In the Realm of the Spirit that focuses on the contrasting spiritual traditions in the region. Travelers visit sacred temples, join pilgrims at holy sites, and practice yoga at a world-renowned retreat in the Himalayas.

On Bali and Beyond travelers discover hidden gems on an incredible 17-day exploration of this magical land. The journey features sailing, snorkeling, dance and the arts, wildlife, ancient cultural traditions and UNESCO temples sites.

Asia Transpacific Journeys can also create private Custom Journeys to India and Indonesia for individual travelers, their family and friends. These depart on your timeframe and incorporate special features completely tailored to each traveler’s unique interests.
