History is full of Lady Adventurers. From Queen Hatsepsut, the central figure of the legendary sea voyage to Punt; to Jane Digby who rode Arabian horses and trekked with nomads; to Mary Kingsley who left Victorian London to travel West Africa with a portmanteau and umbrella as her only luggage; to our great aviatrixes, Amelia Earhart, Amy Johnson and Beryl Markham, these were women who regarded journeying, discovery and adventure as life's greatest luxuries.
The spirit of the Lady Adventurer hasn't entirely been lost in the modern world of prescriptive guidebooks, Ryanair and all inclusive holidays. There are still people who dream of travelling to offbeat places knowing that the journey can be as pleasurable as the destination. This website won't give you detailed itineraries, half the fun of travelling is mapping your own route, but has a selection of ideas to inspire you.
And we're not just for ladies. This site is for anybody that enjoys great travel writing by women. We work hard to find writers with local expertise; in depth knowledge or the ability to weave words that will spirit you far away from your desk.
Lady Adventurer was founded by Francesca Harris in 2010.
