Which Way is the Beach?

Which Way is the Beach?
A Lost Girl’s favorite way to see a new place is on foot, so the famous Coastal Walk from Bondi to Bronte Beach was just our speed. After reading about the five-kilometer, two-hour trail in our trusty Lonely Planet, we laced up our sneakers and set out to take a hike. The rocky bluffs, gemstone-blue...

Soaking Up Sydney

Soaking Up Sydney
When the weather gods deliver a day as brilliant as the one we recently had in Sydney–the last major city on our RTW route–it would be foolish not to spring out of bed and make the most of it. Well, the Lost Girls don’t exactly “spring,” but we did manage to zip out the...

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...

When it comes to certain famous cities around the world, most people tend to paint a romanticized picture in their heads about the specific type of experience they’ll have. You know, like dancing ‘til dawn in the streets of Rio with elaborately beaded and feathered revelers during Carnival...

Blame It on “The Beach”

Beyond the Full Moon

Beyond the Full Moon
Although it probably didn’t seem like it from my previous blog entry, Amanda and I actually didn’t spend our entire time in Ko Pha-Ngan sipping buckets. In between the half moon, New Year’s Eve and full moon parties, the rest of our time was spent exploring the island, working out,...

What the Phuket?! A Glimpse at Thailand’s Sex Tourism Industry

What the Phuket?! A Glimpse at Thailand’s Sex Tourism Industry
Nearly every backpacker we’d spoken with in Thailand vehemently recommended we skip Phuket in favor of one of the islands that hadn’t been choked to death by concrete and commercialism. Unfortunately, having not done enough advanced word-of-mouth research, we’d already advised Beth...

Gotta Goa

Gotta Goa
After spending nearly a week purging our bodies, minds and auras of all sorts of impurities at the Sivinanda Ashram in Southern India (who knew onions, sugar, alcohol, garlic and salt were so evil, anyway?) Jen and I decided that it was high time to roll away our yoga mats and start the inevitable and...
