Women Who Travel
Summary: Condé Nast Traveler editors Lale Arikoglu and Meredith Carey dissect the realities of traveling as a woman today, high-fiving all those shaking things up in food, hospitality, adventure, and travel journalism, and celebrating all the reasons why we refuse to stay home.
There's still plenty of time to get out of town for a long weekend over Memorial Day, or even a full two-week vacation, if you start planning right now (or in 30 minutes, once you've finished this episode).
We chat to Liz Clark, a surfer and environmentalist who's been solo-sailing on her 40-foot ride, 'Swell,' since early 2006, going where the wind, quite literally, takes her.
It helps to start planning early. Like now.
The author of 'The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan' reveals everything she's learned on the road.
We sit down with Jessica Nabongo, on a mission to be the first black woman to visit every country in the world. (This episode is a rebroadcast of Travelogue, our other podcast at Condé Nast Traveler.)
In this week's episode, we talk to author Meg Wolitzer about her new novel, The Female Persuasion, her travels to Manila that inspired parts of it, the incredible people she's met on the road and in bookstores, and her deep love of exploring alone.
You don't have to jump out of a plane to be an adventure traveler. But you could, you know, if you wanted to.
We chat with ocean conservationists Tanya Streeter, Ayana Johnson, and Sheila Bowman about why saving the planet is not just the domain of “white dudes wearing Patagonia fleeces.”
In the first episode of season two, we chat with Alysia Kezerian and Julia Buckley about their experiences traveling with disabilities. Along the way, we learn how far we've come in terms of accessible travel, but also see how much work there is still to do.
Whether it’s a family road trip or a girls’ weekend to a new city, we’ve all experienced the highs (and lows) of traveling in a group. In an ideal world, everyone returns home with a collection of shared memories that make you friends for life, but in reality, things more often fall closer to "I never want to see this person again." Our golden rules for a successful group trip? Choose your travel partners wisely, and, when it comes to money, honesty is always the best policy.
The do's, don'ts, and oh-hell-no's we wish we had listened to.
Our three well-traveled guests share their personal experiences about what it means to travel as a woman of color in 2018—from how they first started exploring the world to the anxieties of traveling as a Muslim American today—and call for a more diverse range of faces and voices to appear in our magazines, on our billboards, and across our screens.
We chat with mothers, writers, and travelers about the types of trips they take, how what they prioritize on the ground has changed (spoiler alert: your kids will not care about that quaint French château as much as you do), and why, in this current political climate, it’s so important to show our children the world and to expose them to the different ways people live.
In a modern society of likes, shares, and constant contact, when do you post that pic and when do you put the phone down?
This week’s episode is dedicated to the women who are shaking up the world of food and drink—both abroad and at home. We're joined by Anna McGorman, the executive pastry chef of Boulud Sud in Manhattan; Ivy Mix, owner of Latin cocktail bar Leyenda in Brooklyn, and co-founder of Speed Rack, an international all-female bartending competition and breast cancer charity; and food writer and cooking teacher Devra Ferst.
