Updated: I wrote this post and the title before the news broke about David Bowie. He will surely continue to have influence over all aspects of our culture. __________ Last week, I let our fabulous WanderBloggers know that the Wanderlust and Lipstick site would be going through a pretty radical design change in the coming […]

I’m currently working with both my web designer and web mistress on these changes. In the meantime, I’d love to get your feedback on the current […]

2016 ~ Looking Ahead

by Beth Whitman (January 6th, 2016)

I do love this time of year. Fresh start. Clean slate. A world (literally) of possibilities. As I mentioned in my 2015 Year in Review, I’m off to a slightly slow start in terms of my planning this year. I usually have time just before Christmas and then through the days shortly after New Year’s […]

2015 Year in Review

by Beth Whitman (January 4th, 2016)

I’m a bit late this year on my New Year’s Resolutions and my look back at 2015. For a quick overview, this is my Instagram best 9 <<. If you’re on Instagram, you can follow me at Wandergal. I blame my tardiness on the fact that I was traveling for most of December. And while […]

Halloween Fun Facts

by Beth Whitman (October 30th, 2015)

I used to really get into Halloween. I would spend months working on my costume. While I can’t say I ever created anything too fancy, I did have fun with the process. I’ve been traveling out of the country for the past couple of Halloweens and have missed seeing our neighborhood kids dressed up. Sadly, […]

For nearly as long as WanderTours has been offering tours, we’ve been donating to organizations located in the countries where our tours run. The donations have all been made on behalf of our tour groups but they come directly from WanderTours. I am so excited to announce that we (myself and a small board of […]

Surfing Maui

by Beth Whitman (June 30th, 2015)

Back in April, I had the chance to go to Maui (my first time there!) for a retreat with my fellow Expedia Viewfinder bloggers. We took writing, video and photography workshops, had business meetings and spent time experiencing some of Maui’s best activities. Oh, and we ate. A lot. Jon was able to tag along […]

What’s My Job?

by Beth Whitman (May 4th, 2015)

It seems so cut and dried to me, what I do on a daily basis. But I’ve picked up from several conversations lately that some people don’t understand exactly what my job is. For example, I mentioned to my neighbor that I was going to Maui with my writing colleagues from the Expedia Viewfinder Blog. […]

Nepal ~ How You Can Help #Give3Nepal

by Beth Whitman (April 27th, 2015)

It’s been a sad few days as we all watch the death toll rise (as of this writing it’s nearly 4,000) and the number of injuries reported (more than 7,000) in the aftermath of the 7.8 earthquake in Nepal. Though it’s been years since I’ve been there, I know many people with very close ties […]

by Beth Whitman (March 10th, 2015)

A couple of weekends ago, I attended (and spoke at) the Women’s Travel Fest (WTF), this year held in San Francisco. The weekend consisted of two full days of speakers and workshops. I participated on two panels on Saturday – one on women’s travel safety and an Expedia panel focused on No Excuses. More in-depth […]
