Us girls gotta stick together, right?

So I’m sharing my ULTIMATE list of travel tips for women.

I’ve traveled the world consecutively for over two years (and counting) and have learned some valuable and hard lessons along the way.

And I admit, traveling for over two years has taken a toll.

So when the opportunity arose to take my 17 year old niece and recent high school grad on a road-trip up the California coast, I jumped all over it!

And being a TOTALLY awesome aunt [insert snarky remark] with a travel website, the pressure was on…

So I put my planning into high gear and put together a wicked itinerary filled with glass beaches, fern canyons, and thy favorite Oregon Shakespeare Festival!

Matty McNair is an American explorer who relocated to the Canadian Arctic for her love of the wilderness and dog sledding.

  • Led the first women’s expedition to the Geographic North Pole.
  • Led an expedition across Ellesmere Island.
