Solo Adventures in Oz: Alone in Cairns

Solo Adventures in Oz: Alone in Cairns
To save money a little money during my post-Lost Girls adventure, I’d booked the absolute last flight of the day from Melbourne to Cairns, the capital of Queensland. In retrospect, this was not my smartest-ever idea. When my plane finally scooted into the terminal at 2:00am, fog and darkness enshrouded...

Adventures in Oz: Learning to Fly Solo

Adventures in Oz: Learning to Fly Solo
On the very last night of The Lost Girls RTW girlfriend’s-getaway-of-a-lifetime, I announced to my traveling companions that I didn’t really feel all that sad. “We’re gonna be seeing each other in a couple months, right? It’s not like we’re saying goodbye forever…” The...

Escape Together: Guide to Girlfriend’s Getaways

Escape Together: Guide to Girlfriend’s Getaways
When Thenera Bailey, co-founder of the travel website Escape Together wrote to ask if we’d be interested doing a podcast about our adventure, we agreed almost immediately. If there’s one thing The Lost Girls like to do almost as much as traveling (and discovering fun new desserts everywhere...

The Countdown

The Countdown
A white elephant has decided to crash The Lost Girls adventure and of course, none of us want to admit that its there. He’s rearing his big head all over Australia, distracting us as we try to plan road trips, acting like a downer at happy hours and forcing us to toss and turn at 3:00am instead...

Dear Lost Girls, I wanted to write you and tell you what an inspiration your blog has been to my 12 yr old daughter. We happened upon it on a link from a friend and were totally hooked....

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful – Bali!

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful – Bali!
So I know it’s a bit lame to steal the Cover Girl cosmetics tagline for the title of my blog, but honestly, it’s the perfect way to describe Indonesia’s famous hedonist hotspot. To proof it, I’ll break it down for you one word at a time! Easy: Everything from the low key, little...

Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo
I had many goals for my yearlong, around-the-world adventure: Hike the Inca Trail in Peru, volunteer in Kenya, do yoga school in India. I wanted to explore all the things I never had time to while slumped over my computer. Somehow I got the chance to try it all, and my final frontier was to dive into...

A Slow Boat through Myanmar

A Slow Boat through Myanmar
Eureka! When we arrived at breakfast on the second day of our Myanmar river cruise, a member of the crew approached to inform Dad and Nadine that their luggage had finally arrived. It was not a moment too soon. After that morning’s scheduled activity-a visit to one of Bagan’s food and crafts...

Way Down Upon the Ayeyarwady River

Way Down Upon the Ayeyarwady River
Another crack-of-dawn morning for Dad, Nadine, Holly and me. After scarfing another quick buffet breakfast (I limited myself to a single plate this time), we flagged down a rusted-out taxicab with no shocks, cushioning or seatbelts but four working wheels and headed to the Yangon airport. Since Dad and...

That’s (Not) the Ticket!

That’s (Not) the Ticket!
The morning of our flight to Myanmar dawned very, very early. We were all bleary eyed and exhausted, having stayed up most of the night trying to track down Dad and Nadine’s missing baggage (a quick call to the Bangkok airport revealed that their suitcases were still half a world away). According...
