Kristine Arndt lives the ‘Beat Generation’ life style (think Jack Kerouac and Albert Camus) and is loving every minute of it. From singing for the President of Kazakhstan to herding cattle in Guyana, she has not let adventure pass her by in any way.

“My life was content, meaningful, and secure.” writes Kate Convissor on her blog. But, she gave up (almost) everything for travel – except her dog Oreo. (He travels too.)

Mix travel, music, photography, “wanderful” words and posts designed specifically to inspire female travelers and you have Ekua Impraim’s ‘Girl, Unstoppable’. This site is chock full “wanderful” things, whether they be her blog entries or the other areas she has created. Her use of D.H. Lawrence’s quote sums it all up: “Be still when you [...]
