Women Travelers to India
Please email me if you’ve traveled through India and are available to be interviewed for my next book, Wanderlust and Lipstick: For Women Traveling to India. I’ll be leaving in late December for a month of travels there. I’d love to hear about YOUR favorite city, village, restaurant or sight so that I can add it to my list of possible places to visit.
Women Traveling with Children
Yes, indeed, it can be done. And our two ace travelers, Michelle (our WanderMom blogger) and Leslie (writer and editor extraordinaire) are working on a book to inspire and encourage travel with children.
Have you traveled with your babies, toddlers, tweens or teens? We’d love to hear your stories! Send me an email and we’ll set you up for an interview early next year.

More Wander Blogs
Though she’s been blogging for a number of months, I wanted to give Kristen Gill a proper introduction. Kristen has left the country more times this year than Bush has said “mission accomplished”. Always an entertaining read, catch up with Kristen yourself and find out about her experiences in Bosnia & Hercegovina, Brazil, Canada, Chicago and the San Juan Islands.

Beyond the Sky and the Earth: A Journey Into Bhutan by Jamie Zeppa – Whether you’re planning a journey to Bhutan or not, it doesn’t matter. This is simply one of the most beautifully written travel memoirs ever. Jamie gently carries you along with her as she experiences everything from culture shock to love in this Himalayan Kingdom.
Water is Life by Tinariwen – Tinariwen is comprised of touareg nomads from Mali in the Sahara Desert. The group emerged from refugee camps in the early 80′s and their popularity seems to have exploded earlier this year with the release of Water is Life. They sing mostly in French and their local language, Tamashek, but you don’t need to speak either to understand their yearning for equality and independence for their people in Mali.
Paradise Now by Hany Abu-Assad – This is a poignant story of two men who have volunteered as suicide bombers in Tel Aviv. This movie provides really interesting insight into the turmoil that recruits go through as they are torn away from family and friends. Of course I’m not sympathetic to suicide bombers, but I see them in a new light after watching Paradise Now.
One of the most common questions I hear is, “What shoes do you wear when you’re traveling?” My answer is, “It depends.” However, weather willing, you can usually find me in a pair of sandals of one kind or another. I recently came across the Aravon line of shoes and love these Mirandas. While I wouldn’t wear them in the Costa Rican rain forest like I would my Tevas, these comfy up-market sandals are perfect for Paris or New York. Don’t forget to add these to your Christmas wish list this year!
