I'm Diana Nyad. One of the delights of hosting The Savvy Traveler is talking to such a wide variety of inspiring people who have made travel their life blood.

But maybe you can understand my resistance at first to interviewing a former exotic dancer. Lily Burana has written a book called "Strip City: A Stripper's Fairwell Journey Across America" and I frankly couldn't imagine what inspiration I was going to find in it.

But I was dead wrong. Lily is intelligent, hilarious, and hones in on some eye-opening insights to an eccentric slice of American life. For her last hurrah as a stripper, Lily danced in twenty clubs across the country and wound up with a unique take on each region she worked. Our first stop: Alaska.
