Grateful: Sexiest Female Travelers Alive 2014

 

sexiest article 2104 female travelersThanks to Mapping Megan & the voting council for including me in their first ever “The Sexiest Female Travelers Alive 2014!”

Description: “We all know you should date a girl who travels; “she spends her weekends jetting around Europe, her holidays trekking through Uganda in search of gorillas, volunteering in a school in Ghana or lying on a beach in Sri Lanka. She spends her evenings reading travel books, watching travel movies or following travel bloggers on Twitter. She might appear to be independent and solitarily happy but, in reality, she would really like that perfect companion to be able to enjoy all of these things with.”

You’ll never get bored with a girl who travels; she’s generally drama free and is less materialistic. She doesn’t dote on possessions but rather treasured experiences.

So, with these qualities in mind, the following is our list for the 25 Sexiest Female Travelers Alive, 2014.”

I am so grateful to be included with all these talented travelers that I am extending the deadline of my Travel Writing Contest to Nov 30, 2014!

Share your story! (and remember the next contest on INSPIRATION will open Jan 2, 2015!)

No more wasted time
No more time for doubt

It’s time you should find out
So say you’ve made a few mistakes
Heroes know that’s what it takes
To find their way
No more wasted time
Not one more day
