Trip tips and travel recommendations for worldly, wanderlusting women.
I must have walked down every uneven street in the city center, taking in every crooked canal house and dodging hundreds of bikes all day. This is my first time traveling by myself – something I’ve always dreamed of doing but always felt too young to do. After saving up enough money, I decided to spend my birthday in one of my favorite places: Amsterdam. As the hot day in July came to a close, I took my place on one of the many green park benches placed along each canal, dreading my flight back home in the morning. I sit there eating a waffle watching the sun go down. The dark orange hue of the sky reflected off the water painting the street in a deep shade of honey, eventually being replaced by the soft glow of the streetlights. Riverboats overflowing with tourists along with small boats of locals drinking and singing pass by me. I’m listening to music, enjoying the last moments of my trip.
Desirée and the River - A Story of Strength and Survival
The water was higher than yesterday. As the Land Rover traversed the low-water bridge, the tires slowly lost traction and the front end of the vehicle began to float. One thing was immediately clear - they weren’t going to make it to the other side of the river.

Why I'm Asking for Tips to Visit a Women's Only Village In Africa
I was at a low point in my life. To work my husband through college, I moved 2,500 miles away from my home, my family, and my friends. I took an office job as a temp where I had nothing to do. I was bored, and I was lonely.
Rita Summers had always loved beautiful, bustling Thailand with its purring, lively streets. It was a place where she felt happy, safe and free. She had decided to take a trip to the Thai island of Koh Samui on a whim after the death of her beloved Siberian Husky, Luna. Luna had been there with Rita through the death of her father, her dropping out of Grad school, losing her full time job that she really enjoyed, etc. So in an attempt to free herself from the pain and grief of losing her beloved pet, Rita decided it couldn’t hurt to dip into a bit of her savings just for some alone time and mental clarity.
New York is lovely in fall and I had an entire afternoon free to wander on my own and do touristy stuff. I saw the Statue of Liberty and climbed up the crown room (I am glad that I was able to do that). **To be young and in love in New York City (in New York City) **. I like climbing tall buildings and observing things from a great height. It feels good to remember all the terrible stuff that you went through because you had a good heart from high places. All the times when you thought you would not be able to make it through but you did, somehow, with the Universe.

Riding in an All Women Train Car in Japan
During my time living in Tokyo and Kyoto, Japan I’ve had on occasion to use the women only cars on trains, only a few times; usually when I or my wife felt threatened by drunk men at weird hours, or when the crush of people was such that groping was sure to happen. That being said I’ve found that many people are interested in the experience so I’ll share a bit about it. It should be noted that my experiences are for the local trains, and that I haven’t taken a women’s only car cross country in Japan, however the differences according to friends are very minimal.
