Love, Marriage, and Wine

Love, Marriage, and Wine
My sister, Sara, got married last month. Rather than celebrate her dwindling days as a single woman by hiring a cheesy stripper to perform (why pay for something when a woman can get it for free? Ha!), or going on a beer-fueled pub crawl, we opted to do a wine tour through upstate New York’s Finger...

Hunter Valley: A Hedonist’s Playground

Hunter Valley: A Hedonist’s Playground
There’s a lot more to Oz than the sunburned outback and endless beaches. When my fellow Lost Girls and I heard about the rolling vineyards, gourmet restaurants and relaxing spas that were to be found in Hunter Valley, we refilled the oil in our camper van (we learned our lesson!) and hit the road....

Head for the Hills!: Part Two

Head for the Hills!: Part Two
Marshmallows + cheap wine + your best girlfriends= recipe for the perfect camping trip. After constructing a kick ass campfire (if we do say so ourselves), we settled into our foldout chairs with the mission of toasting the perfect marshmallow and catching up-since we don’t see each other enough...

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...

All About the Anzac

All About the Anzac
The first time I’d heard the word “Anzac,” it was used to describe a delicious, chewy cookie made from rolled oats, granulated sugar and shredded coconut. So, imagine my delight when I arrived in Sydney and learned that Australians have an entire holiday dedicated to Anzac, celebrated...

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...

Lost in New Zealand: The South Island

Lost in New Zealand: The South Island
While New Zealand’s North Island plays host to the bulk of its population, many people believe that its Southern sister provides far more in the way of stunning natural settings, atmospheric small towns and brag-worthy adventure activities. Amused by the sibling rivalry and excited to indulge our...

Lost in New Zealand: The North Island

Lost in New Zealand: The North Island
Having alighted in a fantastically picturesque city where the streets were spotless, the residents spoke our language and we could indulge in the creature comfort we’d abandoned nine months ago (we now consider drinking water from the tap to be a rare treat), it was tough to fight the urge to...

Blame It on “The Beach”

Blame It on “The Beach”
Long before there was a Sex in the City tour highlighting Carrie Bradshaw’s favorite cosmo-sipping spots and a DaVinci Code tour tracing Robert Langdon’s quest for the Holy Grail, backpackers were following the footsteps of their own unlikely hero-Leonardo DeCaprio-who stumbled upon a white...
