Blogs we Love: Traveling with Kids
Okay forgive us for being total chicks here, but how friggin’ cute is this travel blog? The posts on Traveling with Elliot are pretty standards family-on-a-trip stuff, but the photos are so adorable that we haven’t actually been doing much reading. In the past year, little Elliot has visited...

We’ve got a feed!

We’ve got a feed!
After months spent wondering what the term RSS stood for, we finally asked our web-savvy editor friend Paul B over at Jaunted.com what it was and how we could get our own. Turns out, RSS (Really Simple Syndication–duh!) can help blog lovers like yourselves to check out what their favorite bloggers...

How to: Start Your Own Travel Blog

How to: Start Your Own Travel Blog
Gone are the days when travelers kept in touch with loved ones (and bragged about their overseas exploits!) through mass email. Now, backpackers, vagabonders and itinerant wanderers keep things organized by posting their adventures on a travel blog. The good news is, you don’t even have to be technically...

It Takes a Village: part 2

It Takes a Village: part 2
As many of you know, Jen, Amanda and I volunteered in Kenya through a program called Village Volunteers, and this is a classroom at Pathfinder Academy, a school where we lived in huts and worked with the children. Recent elections in Kenya have triggered violence between the different tribes, volunteers...

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...

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...

Travel Gear: Downsizing your Life…in 3 oz or less
Lucky Magazine really isn’t the first place we turn to learn about fabulous-yet-practical products for backpackers (they once ran a travel spread featuring $900 Marc Jacobs “trekking boots”) but it was in the January issue that we first learned about our newest web obsession: www.Minimus.biz.

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...

My no-laptop diet

My no-laptop diet
So, I’ve been wrestling with whether or not to go back and share some of the more interesting/scary/annoying/joyous aspects of my last two and a half weeks of solo travel in Australia. Since I feel like I can’t “return home” online without sharing what happened at the very end,...
