Best Adventure & Travel Blog Posts
As I mentioned in my previous post for Best Adventure & Travel Blog Posts of the Week, I am writing up my favorites as a [limited time] series for the following reasons:
- It ‘s important to create a sense of community among bloggers.
- I want my readers to be able to find other great sources at times.
- I haven’t had every experience in the world; it would be impossible!
- Sharing these posts, you will get to know me better as well.
Perhaps the reason I share a post is because it’s an adventure high on my bucket list. Maybe a favorite post just comes from something that inspired or motivated me to try something new. Or, I will share a blog post that I just really enjoyed reading. I hope you enjoy these blog posts as much as I did!

I think this article is awesome (okay so it’s more of a list…but I like lists). I don’t prejudice when it comes to taking adventures; I don’t specifically need to go hiking just with women. However, I know some people might be more comfortable starting out on trips with other women only. I also think it might create a different vibe of an outing and different opportunity for some bonding!

Recently I attended a class with REI (but not women-specific) and will be sharing that on the blog soon. Please tell me if any of you have been on an adventure with any of these groups, I’d love to hear!
I came across this particular article reading some fitness blogs. Yes, I know my blog is outdoor adventure & travel but fitness is an important aspect of outdoor exploration! I’d love to spend more time hiking but living in the city without a car it’s not realistic on a daily basis. So, I was looking for a way to get in shape while I live in NYC and tried a crossfit class. I really enjoy exercise and when it feels satisfying and productive, it’s such an adrenaline rush and a mood booster.
Besides the daily benefits, getting in shape will help me be a better backpacker and be more comfortable carrying weight on my back. I also don’t like being at a disadvantage from my petite size; I’d rather be self-sufficient. I don’t want to always be asking some guy to move heavy things for me! At <2 months into my own crossfit training, it’s exciting to see Steph’s progress at 7 months, already competing within her gym! In just a few more months, I’ll be a beast on the trail….
These activities aren’t all outdoors but they’re still great adventures! I’ve been in NYC for less than a year and still have a lot to explore in the city…I read somewhere that you could try a new restaurant everyday for 50 years and not run out of places to try! Now, that isn’t really my goal of course, I’d rather explore my New York life list for outdoor adventures.
Recently, after my helicopter tour over Manhattan, we took a boat over to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. I had never been to either and it’s just one of those tourist things you need to do once in your lifetime! So, I got to see the Statue from different viewpoints in one day: from above, from the boat, and from inside.
What’s a must-do in YOUR current city?
