Our pre-trip NYC countdown!

<—–Our last visit to Tasti-d-Lite…a New York institution on par with Junior’s Cheesecake and the Cosmopolitan, but with only 10 skinny calories per ounce! Amanda indulges in a LG favorite: Milky Way with chocolate sprinkles, to be eaten on the run.

Ahhh….pedicure! We got ours whenever possible at Cindy’s Nails on the Upper West Side. Here, Jen prepares for one of our last big nights on the town by get her toes painted with Opi’s “It Now or Never” polish. —->

<—–Holly getting “fluffed” at our first Lost Girls photo shoot. We had real photographers and props and a makeup artist and everything!

Jen says farewell to her fabulous VH1 coworkers (Courtney and Catherine, from left) at the Lost Girls Bon Voyage Party.

<—–Jen and Amanda score mad going-away-for-a-year loot, all wrapped up in internationally appropriate paper. Inside: a kick ass travel journal, plus photos, from roomie Beth.

Holly (bless her cotton socks!) helps Jen and Amanda take nine enormous boxes of stuff eight city blocks to a UPS Store…using nothing more than a few furniture dollies. We owe you one, sister.—–>

    Amazing photos and blog I am so green with envy that I haven’t yet been able to see Africa and the far east.. lucky you.. keep up the great posts..

  • Kristen says:

    I stumbled upon your book in Barnes and Noble yesterday, and haven’t been able to put it down. Almost done reading it (on pg 412)! You are truly an inspiration to all us 20 and 30-somethings out there wondering what life would be like “if only…” I wish I had the courage to drop everything and just go, but if nothing else, I can live vicariously through your stories.

  • Amanda says:

    Thanks for all of the great comments here! Kristen, I’m so happy that you stumbled upon the boook and you’re enjoying it so much! In the years that we’ve been putting together this blog, you guys–our readers in every part of the world–are a huge inspiration to us. Let’s all live vicariously through each other, then get out there…and GO! 🙂 xo ADP

  • Sarah says:

    I’m nearly finished with your book, and am totally immersed in it. As a tay-at-home mom and freelance writer/editor, I’m living vicariously through you and your travels, and learning a lot about the world at the same time. Great job on the book, blog, and living life!

  • Sarah says:

    oops … Obviously, this editor should have edited her comment before posting. “Stay-at-home mom”, not “tay-at-home mom”.

  • Tanya says:

    Ladies, I just finished reading your book today, wow! I am your biggest fan! Well done, your book is undownputtable! I loved your writing style as well. Thank you for a wonderful journey!

  • Liz says:

    Amazing story!! Read it cover to cover and loved every minute of it! Very inspirational!

  • Audrey Jean says:

    I have just two chapters left of The Lost Girls and I am not looking forward to the end. Its been the greatest read I have ever had and I don’t think I’ll ever find a better(if not equally good) book. I’m just a sixteen year-old girl from California, too young to be a lost girl, but I really am one. I hope I can travel the world someday like you guys did.

  • Eugenia says:

    Im currently reading your book and cant put it down. Ive always dreamt about going on an around-the-world trip, and actually plan on doing it sometime in my twenties. I have to say that I admire your courage to leave everything and just go make your dreams come true. Its no easy fit, but you girls pulled it off, and although I dont know you personally, Im proud of you, for you are a great inspiration to a lot of girls who dream about that too. The photos are awesome, and I hope Jen and Holly really thanked you Amanda for always being the one to videotape everything; been there done that, and its a huge job. Anyway, please continue with this website, its amazing, and dont dissapear on us! Hugs from Uruguay (hope to see you girls here sometime, and please contact me if you ever do), Eugenia.

  • Robyn says:

    Loved the book, it was so inspirational. I’m only 19, and have no money but a trip like this is on my bucket list now! Although, one of my friends is going to South Africa, Australia and Asia BY HERSELF. I’m so jealous I can barely stand it!

  • Tara Poole says:

    I just finished the book and loved it. I felt like I was on the trip with you. Great job girls. Truly inspirational!

  • Canada Cait says:
