Packing Hell…

Packing Hell…
As anyone who’s lost hours of their life scraping invisible shreds of packing tape from a roll can attest, moving day–and the week leaving up to it-truly suck. Actually, we hear it’s a little like childbirth in that it’s supposed to be miserable, but you have to be the one actually...

Taking the Leap

Taking the Leap
The Lost Girls took a big step towards hitting the road: We quit our jobs. What was my experience leaving my gig as an editor at a national women’s magazine, you ask? Well, it was scary (I’ll sure miss those steady paychecks), sad (call me lucky, but I love my boss and actually look forward...

What We Packed

What We Packed
Try as we might, we couldn’t pair down quite as much as the hardcore backpackers, who travel with a single change of clothes, sneakers, a toothbrush and a smile.

20 Reasons We Took Off

20 Reasons We Took Off
Since we’ve started planning this round-the-world journey, we keep getting the same question: Why? We couldn’t come up with one good reason-so we came up with twenty. In no particular order, here are our ulterior motives for going nomad: 1. We’d rather wake up to the roar of the Amazon...
