Adventuress Travel Magazine is for adventurous women who are interested in travels, be it close to home OR far and wide!
We are women over 50 traveling and doing fun things….
Here you’ll find stories of true experiences to stimulate the adventuress in you - I know there is one!
Our latest story is by Rosemary J Brown who follows in the footsteps of intrepid journalist and adventurer, Nellie Bly, who in 1889 raced through a 'man's world' in 72 days -- alone and literally with the clothes on her back -- to shatter the fictional record set by Jules Verne's Phileas Fogg in Around the World in 80 Days. Read Rosemary's journey 125 years later, traveling alone with one single bag on the same route!
Or catch up with one of our favorite writers, Judith Morrison, as we learn about her adventure teaching English as a Foreign Language in Los Cabos, Mexico after a seven year break - is teaching like riding a bicycle?! Read more here...

Why adventuress-travel-magazine.com? How was the magazine founded 11 years ago?
Carolyn, former editor, says:
"On a travel adventure to China, I met several women traveling with each other, rather than with a husband.
Some were divorced—one had never been married—and one said to me, “My husband said he wasn’t interested in China and why don’t I just go with one of my friends?”
I came home from China thinking that we need a place to share - a place where we can write essays about our unusual and challenging travel experiences …. talk about books we love ….. and strange foods we’ve eaten …
We need a place to meet like-minded women who’ve had “a life” and can still thrill at the sound of camel bells and be awed by the hooooooo-hoo of howler monkeys.
Et voilá, adventuress-travel-magazine.com was born!"
