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...

What you don’t know about Kansas City, MO

What you don’t know about Kansas City, MO

Lost Girl Field Trip: Andros Island-Part 4
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 Girl of the Week: Lauren Stitle

Lost Girl of the Week: Lauren Stitle
One of the things I love most about being a Lost Girl is receiving emails from other fearless ladies who have dared to get ‘lost’ themselves and are eager to share their stories. And what’s even more extraordinary is when one LG tale motivates another, as was the case with Lost Girl...

Holly Corbett Has No Regrets
People seriously crack me up: A certain New York gossip rag wrongly quoted me as saying that travel changed my life for the worse. Ha!

La Dolce Vita!

La Dolce Vita!
No wonder Italians coined the phrase, “the sweet life:” They have plenty of time to pursue it with a whopping 28 paid vacation days plus 18 paid holidays (that’s more than nine weeks off a year!). Compare that to the measly 14 days American companies tend to offer. The law of the European...

Behind every great travel blogger are the great travel memoirs that inspired them. Here are a few of our favorites…shout outs to: *MAIDEN VOYAGE, by Tania Aebe. She was an eighteen-year-old dropout and barfly, going nowhere until her father offered her a challenge. He would offer her either a...
