Creative Ways to Save for Travel: Move to Latin America
by Kyle Hepp So the last time the Lost Girls heard from me, I had just married my Chilean husband, was adjusting to life as a newlywed expat in Chile and trying to save money for a trip around the world. Well, guess what I’m doing now – still trying to save money for a trip around the...

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...

Lost Girl of the Week: Julie Stone
As much as Jen, Holly and I loved traveling together as a dynamic trio of girlfriends, we always wondered what it might be like to do a similar trip with a boyfriend.

Lost in Ecuador: Sink or Swim in Baños

Lost in Ecuador: Sink or Swim in Baños
In Spanish, the word baños actually means “bathroom,” so I found it amusing that an entire town christened was such (but I promise to spare you attempts at potty humor in this post). My bf Jeff and I learned that the name actually refers to the thermal hot springs, or baths, that well...

Lost in Ecuador: Lava on the Rocks

Lost in Ecuador: Lava on the Rocks
Wiped out from the endless rain showers that had soaked us to the skin in Mindo, Jeff and I decided that we might have better luck with the weather in the town of Baños, home of the Tungurahua volcano. True, the big cone had blown its top just 8 days before our arrival in Ecuador (sending a smoldering...

Lost with a Boyfriend: Beyond Cumbaya (The Country Retreat)
After sleeping off one hell of a long-haul travel hangover, Jeff and I stumbled downstairs to meet our hosts, Andrew and his Ecuadorian girlfriend Lau, for the day’s activity. When the pair had originally suggested a small barbeque at the family farm outside of Quito, I’d somehow presumed...

Lost with a Boyfriend: Arriving in Quito

Lost with a Boyfriend: Arriving in Quito
After we waited at the carousel in the Quito Airport for nearly a half hour and not spotting out bags, Jeff and I were convinced the airline had lost our luggage.

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...
