Adventuress Travel Magazine

Get inspired to plan your next trip, and dream for a while – Here is your best travel resource!

Adventuress Travel Magazine is for adventurous women who are interested in traveling, be it close to home OR  far and wide!

We are women traveling and doing fun things….

Here you’ll find stories of true experiences to stimulate the adventuress in you - I know there is one!

Read about my latest adventure, emigrating from Spain to New Zealand during a worldwide pandemic.

Another recent 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!

And if you contact us before you travel, we may be able to issue you with a letter of assignment, which may get you a discount on your travel and accommodation.  Check our writers guidelines.

AND DO NOT WORRY about your spelling, grammar, punctuation or style; we use the services of professional proofreader and copyeditor Richard to tidy things up if needed. Read more about Richard HERE.
