Finding our Mojo

Finding our Mojo
Even before Jen, Holly and I had set foot on Australian soil, we figured we had a pretty solid grasp on life “Down Under.” Thanks to some quality American television shows, classic 80s movies and even a few cool advertising campaigns, we’d already gleaned several critical bits of information...

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...

Head for the Hills!: Part One

Head for the Hills!: Part One
Since the Lost Girls scored an awesome camper World Nomads camper van, we decided to take it-where else?-camping. Our premiere girlfriends getaway in the Blue Monster (as we affectionately named our new set of wheels) takes place in Barrington Tops National Park. I chose our destination in my usual last-minute...

Sydney Harbor Bridge: The Climb of Our Lives!

Sydney Harbor Bridge: The Climb of Our Lives!
It was a beautiful, sunny morning in Sydney and Amanda, Holly and I were spending it in typical fashion – – a teensy bit hung over from the night before and running late, OK really late, for our scheduled activity du jour. Normally, we were happy to adopt the customary Australian “no-worries”...

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...

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...

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful – Bali!

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...

Finding Nemo

Finding Nemo
I had many goals for my yearlong, around-the-world adventure: Hike the Inca Trail in Peru, volunteer in Kenya, do yoga school in India. I wanted to explore all the things I never had time to while slumped over my computer. Somehow I got the chance to try it all, and my final frontier was to dive into...

A Slow Boat through Myanmar

A Slow Boat through Myanmar
Eureka! When we arrived at breakfast on the second day of our Myanmar river cruise, a member of the crew approached to inform Dad and Nadine that their luggage had finally arrived. It was not a moment too soon. After that morning’s scheduled activity-a visit to one of Bagan’s food and crafts...
