“MARIE WE ARE SO SORRY... I'm losing emails, my keys and even lost my car the other day but somehow the dog’s still alive (thank God).” Direct, spontaneous and hilarious: Jill and Kyla’s apology for taking ages answering my questions about the whirlwind adventure that has been taking them far and wide across the U.S. since last August is true to the livel[...]

Why Women Should Travel

•••
International Women’s Day is a celebration of nebulous origins, and dubious manifestations (should we thank or punch the colleague who holds the door for us "because it's International Women's Day"?). However, this annual milestone has one merit: every year, for one day, it specifically focuses media attention on issues regarding gender equality—and, in t[...]

•••
When it comes to history of superheroes, the pages of comic books haven’t been overly friendly to the thoughts of heroines with Krypton origins and Spider-Senses. However, the idea of a woman being idolized as a superhero has recently been introduced to the mass. Neverthless, there’s still a long way to go for the more curvier superheroes to enjoy the same k[...]

Travelette of the Month: Eva Stotz, documentary filmmaker

•••
On trips to far-away countries and different cultures I often feel a little lost. Advice by friends and guidebooks might help, but what I would actually need is the inside perspective of a local. Just, how to get to them? It's not like I can just walk into their house, sit down at their kitchen table and ask them what to do in their town or country.. but wai[...]

Travelette of the month: Marawa the Amazing

•••
I’m sure you've heard of hula hoop superstar Marawa the Amazing: she has spun hoops on stage with Major Lazer and Olivia Newton John (not together — that would be weird), on runways for Kenzo, and made it to the semifinals of Britain’s Got Talent.

Doodlin' in Queensland: an interview with Jodie Lyons

•••
In 2010 my friend Jodie sporadically decided to put her stuff in storage and travel to Australia for a few months.  A few months grew quickly into a year and right before the start of 2012 she set foot on American soil for the first time since she left.  I was excited to see her again, but to be quite honest I almost didn't recognize her.  Never mind it was [...]
