An End to Hot Dogging!

An End to Hot Dogging!
For the past several months, LG Molly Fergus has been co-piloting the world-famous Wienermobile, hot-dogging across the country and blogging about her experiences here. This weekend, her yearlong journey inside the mustard-slathered mothership came to a close. While driving the vehicle was a role she...

Lost Girl of the Week: Jessica Marie

Lost Girl of the Week: Jessica Marie
Most would-be travelers need some sort of catalyst to uproot them from a comfy spot on the couch (or an exceedingly uncomfortable office chair) and propel them towards the open road. For many, its a window of unscheduled time–the period between college and grad school, a sabatical from work, an...

Lost with a Boyfriend: Ecuador or Bust!

Lost with a Boyfriend: Ecuador or Bust!
LG’s Law of Travel #483: The better prepared you attempt to be for your journey, the more egregiously your best-laid plans will veer off course. Jen, Holly and I pretty much relied on dumb luck, and the occasional kindness of embassy officials,to get us from point A to B during our year around...

Traveling the Globe on a Single Ticket

Traveling the Globe on a Single Ticket
Often times, the most confusing part of planning a major international journey is figuring out what type of airline ticket (or tickets) you need to get. Should you buy each leg separately, and on different airlines, to maximize flexibility? Save yourself the hassle of researching flights on the road...

The Lost Girls: They’re Baaaack!

The Lost Girls: They’re Baaaack!
We’re still here! And by “here” we mean New York City. We just wanted to give a shout out to let y’all know that we’ve reunited in the Big Apple and temporarily retired our backpacks (and our vagabond ways) to restock our bank accounts and (re)join the rest of the working...

Lost, but not forgotten…we hope!

Lost, but not forgotten…we hope!
Okay, so all three Lost Girls realize that we haven’t properly blogged in weeks (um, months?), but we have a pretty darn good excuse: we finally wrapped up our Lost Girls round-the-world marathon and have re-entered NYC! Actually, the move home happened over the summer, and we can personally attest...

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...

Feeling Lost? Tell Us About It…
As you have may have read in our “Taking the Long Way Around” post, we’ve wrapped up our yearlong journey and are now in various stages of returning home (Amanda’s off solo-traveling Australia, Jen’s doing the friends n’ family tour and Hol went straight back to NYC). But...

Taking the Long Way Around

Taking the Long Way Around
The Lost Girls officially pulled off the trip of a lifetime by safely landing in Oz, and it’s time to end our yearlong journey. While all the lessons we’ve learned on the road probably won’t hit us until after we’re back in the States, we do know this: Travel has proved we’re...

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...
