Lost Girls Field Trip: Andros Island-Part 8

Lost Girls Field Trip: Andros Island-Part 8
Jen: While I wouldn’t trade my position as 1/3 of The Lost Girls writing team for anything in…well…the world, I recently spread my journalist wings and accepted my first solo assignment: a 9-part web series on Andros Island for the pop culture travel site, Jaunted.com. But even though...

Lost in Colombia: Getting What We Paid for on Avianca

LG Obessions: Photoshop.com Plus

LG Obessions: Photoshop.com Plus
ADP: I’ve always had a little bit of a fascination with Photoshop. The idea that you can take any digital snapshot and crop, flip, adjust, tweak and brighten it to re-create a memory seems the closest thing to grown-up magic that I can imagine. My only problem with the program? Since it doesn’t...

ProjectExplorer: Fostering the next generation of Global Citizens

ProjectExplorer: Fostering the next generation of Global Citizens
Jen: When it comes to non-profit organizations, The Lost Girls tend to gravitate towards those that: a) focus on global/international issues, b) aid children in need and c) use film, media (or travel blogs :)) as educational tools. So when we discovered that ProjectExplorer meets all three of our favorite...

How To Plan a Round-the-World (RTW) Trip

How To Plan a Round-the-World (RTW) Trip
Okay, so the title of this post is a little bit of a misnomer. No matter how much advance thought you put into it-how many guidebooks you read, excel charts you create or the number of seasoned traveler whose brains you pick-it’s all but impossible to plot out your entire adventure while sitting...

Honeymooning for a Living: The Globetrotting Bride

Honeymooning for a Living: The Globetrotting Bride
New York-based publicist Lyla Gleason has what most would consider to be a dream job-she jet sets around the globe, showing off destinations to journalists who write for the glossiest of travel magazines. Who wouldn’t want to fill her shoes (or at the very least, carry her bags?). Recently, this...

Live from the Wienermobile: The breakup

Live from the Wienermobile: The breakup
Molly and Selena: It would be an understatement to say that, after spending seven months traversing the Southern U.S., we know a lot about each other. The truth is, we know practically everything – what entrees we’ll order at lunch, what we put in our coffee, whether we prefer Coke or Pepsi...
