The Lost Girls is an inspiring, modern story of three women, unsure of where their lives are going and also of where they want them to be going.Jennifer, Holly and Amanda drop their impressive, fast-paced New York City jobs, leave some boyfriends and exes behind and commit to a year-long, Round-the-World trip that they never dreamed they'd actually do. This is a great story for travelers or really anybody who feels lost or unsure with the current stage of their own life.
From the very first page it sucked me in and I felt like I knew Elisabeth right away. She seemed like the kind of girl that I would be friends with. In the beginning of her travels she works as an au pair in Spain and shares details of her first foreign lover, a motorcycle-wielding Spaniard who she romantically meets at a local beachside restaurant. Are these not the kind of stories we want to hear about?
"Every nation across Latin America and the Caribbean is at a different stage of development when it comes to street dog welfare." Strays are everywhere.

Why I Blog
My original blog started in spring of 2012!
I started writing about my tavels when I was living in a tiny township in Taiwan and needed a place to share and vent my culture shock in a town where only the English school could speak English. It started as something I had to do for myself, and as a way for me to chart a seemingly uncharted place in central Taiwan. I have always loved writing but didn't feel like I had much to say that others would want to read about at least.
My focus has changed as I've moved from Asia to Europe to the States. Right now I'm reading lots of travel memoirs and reflecting on my home culture in the States before my next, exciting adventure to my next continent, South America!!!
